Day's Eye was created by Spanish born, Margarida Kessens. After completing her Bachelors’ Degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, she worked several years in the textile and fashion industry. She moved to Kansas City to embrace time as a mother of two boys in 2008, and welcomed her 3rd son in 2011. After several years of searching for a stylish, high quality handbag that could be easily converted to a backpack, she launched Day's Eye, LLC.
Why the name Day's Eye?
The Catalan name of Margarida is translated in English as Daisy.
Daisy comes from the Old English word Day's Eye, pronounced dægeseage.
Margarida was born in Tarragona, once a capital of the Roman Empire on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. She grew up in Valls, a small town 20km northwest of Tarragona dating back to the second half of the XII century.
Margarida spends most of the Summers there with her family enjoying the catalan food and culture.
