Danny Kong was born in Bangkok into a family of shoe makers. Naturally, Danny worked as a shoe designer during his college years. Upon graduation in 1986, Danny immigrated to the US and began working with a large interior design company in Los Angeles.

While working one day, Kong received a sample of Italian tapestry from a nearby showroom. He returned home at the end of the day with the fabric in hand and, using the skills he had learned in his younger years, came up with a simple but beautiful tapestry tote bag. "I felt so happy", Danny said, "to be back at work doing something I love".
The following weekend he hung the bag in a friend's booth at the Hollywood Farmer's Market. That first bag sold quickly and soon Kong had a booth of his own with a steadily growing following of loyal customers.
Since this humble
beginning twelve years prior, both the sophistication of Kong's designs
and his selection of fabrics continue to grow. He now works on the bags
full time. Adding to his early shoemaking expertise, Kong sought additional
training in pattern making and design and has established a reputation for
handcrafting the highest quality handbags.
Danny Kong has devoted himself to making the best handbags possible. He hand cuts the fabric in every bag to highlight the beauty and design of the tapestry. Kong always has some new idea he is working on and existing designs are constantly re-examined for the possibility of further improvement. Kong cherishes the feedback from individual customers and takes that feedback to heart as many of his best ideas to date have actually originated from comments provided by his customers.
There is definitely something for everyone in the Danny K. line of handbags: The Isabella Tote that is stylish enough for everyday wear; The Classic Backpack that is hands-free and secure; The Maggie Purse with her big, beautiful smile and the new Little Bella with adjustable shoulder cord and cutaway front pocket. And yes, all the accessories to match, like the Cosmetic Case, Cell Phone Case and even the handy Coin Purse. Kong has produced and shipped bags to customers in US state. Danny K handbags have been sold at high end shops from east to west coast including The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and the world Famous Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas.
