Live Good Luxury Leather was founded by Bianca Wylie in 2022 after she moved from California to South Carolina. Bianca is a self-taught Leathersmith. She became interested in therapeutic art during the pandemic as a way to relax and calm her mind. Bianca is a 100% service-connected disabled United States Marine Corps veteran. Leatherwork gave her the the peace and focus she was looking for. Her interest in leatherwork quickly developed into a passion, and that passion ended up leading her to make major business changes.
Bianca is currently working on her second bachelor's degree in Environment & Character Design in the Los Angeles Film School's animation program. She completed her first bachelor's degree in Business Administration with a focus on Management at California State University San Marcos. Bianca also holds associate degrees in Accounting from Mira Costa College, Computer Networking from Gibbs College, and graduated from Bellus Academy in Poway as a licensed Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) and massage therapist, with a Level 1: Wellness for Cancer Certification.
Live Good Luxury leather originally started off as Live Good Integrative Health and Wellness Massage, founded in 2016 by Bianca Wylie, HHP. It was a very successful therapeutic massage and spa until the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Due to complications that arose from the long lockdown restrictions, she was challenged to adapt to the situation. She was forced to move away from hands-on bodywork and spa services, as well as away from the west coast. Bianca started to focus on how to integrate more of a holistic health and wellness approach, while also looking for a way to give back to the community.
Bianca has used leatherwork as a way to positively engage with her local community, as well as a way to benefit local youth. She teaches free leatherworking classes for local Boy Scout packs, and children living in group homes through a collaboration with Caleb's Dragonfly Dreams, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
