OUR STORY

Where will you take your Bae? Where will your Bae take you?

Designed in Austin, Texas, this global business venture integrates a 100% women workforce.

Bae Liles also features a line of easy-to-wear dresses, made in Los Angeles, with a portion of sales from each dress directly invested into the production of the Bae Bag.

Bae Liles is about living and packing light. Each design serves as a canvas to create the look that suits your style. We want our products to be maintenance free and multi-purposeful. We hope they travel the world.
