Founded in 2012 and based in New York, Emm Kuo is a designer accessories brand founded by Emmaline Kuo Ranzman. Appreciation for quality materials and a strong integrity to design and workmanship are the main principles behind the Emm Kuo accessories line. Architectural influences, strong textural contrasts and clean shapes render the collection modern yet classic. The Emm Kuo brand aims to create accessories that are a harmonious mix of style, sophistication and versatility. Each piece is treated like a work of art; intertwining only the most luxurious European leathers, exotic skins and customized hardware in a intricate, but understated way. Born in Taipei and raised between Hawaii, New York and Hong Kong, Emmaline Kuo Ranzman developed an early love of travel and appreciation of world cultures that has left an indelible mark on her design aesthetic.
