Kalkidan Gebreyohannes is the owner of KALU, a collection of high-end luxury handbags #EthiopiansInCalifornia

Kalkidan Gebreyohannes was tired of the void she saw for Black designers who created high-end, luxury handbags. Rather then try to work her way into another white-washed company, she simply decided to disrupt the entire industry.

The Oakland-based designer came up with the concept for her brand, KALU, which is what her friends call her. She is a self-taught entrepreneur with roots in Ethiopia, Canada, and Southern California, and a mother of three.
