About the brand
Fiona Kempton, designer and owner of Kempton & Co., was born in 1977 and raised in a house by the sea in the countryside of southwest England, setting the stage for a rather unique childhood and a lifetime connected to the ocean. It was due to her address, in fact, that she was introduced to sewing as Fiona's parents owned a scuba diving business. She'd often catch her father stitching wetsuits and canvas fly fishing bags, which led to her creating make up bags with fabric remnants and zippers from vintage clothes, as a child. Her father, John Kempton was formerly a racehorse trainer and jockey (winner of England's famous Grand National in 1967). John also engineered beautiful leather saddlery that Fiona believed would look exquisite as re-imagined handbags. Growing up around the distressed leather of her old riding boots and the heavy waxed canvas of the horses' rain rugs, leather straps and buckles, solidified her love for equestrian design and culture, combined with an active life on the water. Fiona continued on to study fashion design in London's Kingston University. After graduation, she moved to New York, and spent the next ten years of her life designing for major brands. As exciting as it was, Fiona missed the artistic creativity and freedom she experienced making her own bags as a child. She then started to design on her own again, more seriously this time, creating a tech-friendly bag with an in-built protective sleeve for a laptop, which was well received amongst her peers. It was as stylish as it was functional, and the positive feedback was just the push she needed to follow her instincts and start her own business. Kempton & Co. was born in Brooklyn in 2010. Fiona's heritage is a main inspiration. She designs bags with soft leathers and textiles juxtaposed with the utility of equestrian hardware. She prides herself in always maintaining an artistic approach to function; it is a philosophy that the company strives to maintain with each and every bag. Fiona lives in Brooklyn with her husband and daughter. An avid kiteboarder, surfer and sailor she spends each summer weekend afloat her sailboat in the Hamptons, which naturally led to the creation of her urban beach bag collection.
