100% Incognito [and fashionable]

A few years ago I was working in a dangerous part of town – there were three registered sex offenders within a one block radius of my building and many homeless people with mental health problems due to the closure of a mental health hospital. During winter months my quarter mile walk between the bus stop and my building was in darkness when arriving or leaving work.  I felt the environment was unsafe. I was alone and often scared.

When I was very young, my mom was attacked in a dark parking lot while by herself.  Since that time, my family has been strong proponents for self-protection. So when similar threats became a regular part of my life my dad encouraged me to start carrying a gun. I took professional training on gun safety and personal protection. I got my concealed carry pistol license, bought a small gun that I shot well and started shopping for a bag to carry it in. I could not find single bag I liked and became very frustrated. I promised myself that someday when I could start a business I would make gorgeous leather handbags with clean lines for concealed carry, something I would love to wear myself.  I wanted all women in the same circumstances to have the choice of being safe and fashionable.

The Blue Ringed Octopus

Small and beautiful but lethal protection is not far removed - just like Clandestina. While passive in nature it is regarded as one of the most venomous creatures in the marine environment. Blending into the its habitat the Blue Ringed Octopus does not naturally attract predators and uses awareness as means of fleeing from danger. When threatened with inescapable danger the Blue Ringed Octopus poses in a threatening stance and shows its blue rings as warning to predators.
