Ladies We Love: Erin Tufts Cartier
This issue of Ladies we Love is featuring our dear friend Erin of Rorin! Erin and I met back in college, but it wasn't until our 30's that we realized we were soul sisters!
Erin Tufts Cartier is the founder and designer designer of Rorin. Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana and a graduate of Louisiana State University’s Textiles, Apparel, and Merchandising program, Erin envisioned a brand that would foster her passion for designing unique accessories rooted in sustainable processes. Her creative vision has long been interwoven with a desire to integrate a resourceful approach in how she discovers and repurposes unique materials. With over 10 years of experience working with high-end accessories brands such as Safilo, KREWE and most recently at Texas-based design house Keri Kropp, Erin hopes to infuse her fashion retail know-how into developing Rorin’s collections.
Rorin specializes in bespoke luxury handbags that are sustainably produced statement pieces.
Each collection is sparked from our passion for repurposing materials to create unexpected textural and color contrasts. Rorin is driven to design unique accessories that elevate your everyday style while giving you the peace of mind that our collections reflect the highest quality and craftsmanship while staying committed to responsible production and sourcing practices.

In addition to making beautiful handbags and more, Erin also specializes in branding and web design! In fact, she did our branding and made our website and Fallon's Blog as well! We could go on for days about her many talents, check her out!
