Brighton Collectibles is an accessories manufacturer and retailer, with 180 retail stores. Brighton products are also sold in more than 4,000 specialty boutiques or online.
The concept for Brighton began when Terri Kravitz and Jerry Kohl, high school sweethearts, opened a specialty retail store. In 1991, Terri and Jerry launched Brighton Collectibles with a single collection of belts. Over the years, Brighton has expanded their products to include a line of coordinating accessories and footwear. A customer might choose a lipstick case that matches a wallet, earrings that match a pair of sunglasses, a handbag that matches footwear, or an entire coordinating collection consisting of multiple accessories. Luggage and home accessories are included in Brighton's home line.
Brighton is headquartered in the City of Industry, California, and is a division of Leegin Creative Leather Products, also based in City of Industry, CA. For more than 30 years, Leegin has been manufacturing belts and other leather accessories at a California factory that has expanded from a shop with five employees to a plant employing more than 600 people. Components for some of the products are manufactured in countries such as France, Italy, Spain, China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan. As of February, 2020, the company reports Brighton jewelry being made in Taiwan. Brighton footwear is made in Brazil, Italy and India while Brighton handbags are manufactured in China.
