YOSEMITE, AYK’s first collection, aims to capture the beauty of raw nature. The pieces are a celebration of materials and form, and the culmination of Kim’s transition to an accessories designer.
Made from vegetable-tanned leather, each YOSEMITE piece is one-of-a-kind with unique characteristics from the leather grain. Kim has perfected the hand-treated dyeing technique over the past two years to create a sunset-like gradient effect. The YOSEMITE accessories reflect life’s journey, wearing gracefully over time as the dyes enhance the leather’s natural patina.
