Thomasine Buchanan and Majia Buchanan, mother and daughter, founded Toni Buchanan LLC. They founded this startup company in 2017, based in their brownstone apartment in Brooklyn, New York. Toni Buchanan LLC is named after Thomasine Buchanan, an independent, creative, and self-taught businesswoman who was given the nickname "Toni" by her mother.
Thomasine and Majia create one-of-a-kind, handmade leather handbags that are high-quality conversation starters. It began as a way to fund an Ottoman business venture, but quickly evolved into a passion and thriving business.
The idea behind the designs was to offer handbags that were not only handmade but also functional, fun, colorful, yet classy and one-of-a-kind. Majia's fashion design background and Thomasine's craftsmanship formed the dynamic duo behind the self-start up small business.
With little experience in starting a business, the dynamic duo had the desire and passion to learn the skills, as well as being consistent, patient, and understanding that you could exceed your dreams. They hope to inspire others that anything is possible, and that despite many setbacks, believing in yourself and others believing in your brand is extremely rewarding.
They hope to expand their product line and reach people on a national and international scale who appreciate the unique and classy designs in the near future. They are visionaries who want to make a difference in any way they can.
