Our Team

Jodi Been
is an award-winning L.A.-based handbag designer whose 10-plus years of experience in the fashion industry spans from mass market retailers to her own namesake line. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin and the Fashion Institute of Technology, Jodi's handbags have been featured in O: The Oprah Magazine, LOLO Magazine and L.A. Confidential among others. Jodi co-founded the handbag and accessories website AntoniaBee.com and her credentials include work for companies including Betsey Johnson, Pacific Sunwear, and Claire's.

Faith Kohler is a former federal law enforcement officer with experience in investigations, corporate/enterprise risk and crime prevention methodologies. A graduate of Wellesley College and Marquette University Law School, Faith practiced law before moving to a career as a federal agent.  Her time off duty includes volunteering and documentary filmmaking. Her years of dressing around a gun led her on a quest to create the perfect accessory: a contemporary handbag that would safely conceal her firearm without detracting from her on-trend style.  

Brian Hugh is a retired federal law enforcement officer with more than 25 years of experience. A former range master and firearms instructor, Brian is also a certified armorer whose background and experience with weapons lends another dimension to our bag designs. 

Wilde Custom Gear, a law enforcement owned and operated company, worked with our team to develop and produce “made in the USA” holsters to fit our bags. Wilde offers custom nylon gear sewn by tactical craftsmen, and its staff has more than 40 years of combined military and law enforcement experience.
