It all started with the Cleveland skyline. With clear silhouettes of the downtown’s famous skyscrapers, Anne Skoch’s native city was one of the first ones she designed on a pillow for her dorm room at Kent State University. Now, her company Anne Cate sells 160 different city skylines on a variety of items at 90 stores across the country.
Featuring The Terminal Tower, Key Tower and others, Anne Cate’s bestselling skyline bags ($10-$45) let you take the city with you wherever you go. “I think our skyline is true proof of being small but mighty,” says Skoch. “Every person has a different story or memory of their time in Cleveland, whether it’s current or 100 years ago and our products capture that.”
From chic mini purses, zipper pouches, canvas totes and travel bags, there’s a version for every occasion, with even a recently added gameday wristlet featuring a bold burgundy color. Each bag is printed and then machine stitched and assembled in Skoch’s studio in the historic Matchworks Building. 8500 Station St., Suite 375, Mentor, 440-954-1742, annecate.com
