Who is Uptown Conceal?

We are thrilled that everyone who uses our concealed carry accessories knows they are getting a stylishly, discreet, high quality accessory  worthy of your discriminating taste & style.  Accessories you are comfortable carrying from the Board Room to a Dinner Date.

Before we created Uptown Conceal we, like you, found ourselves constantly on the search for concealed carry accessories that were stylish and discreet – we didn’t want any that screamed “I am carrying”.

Women are one of the fastest growing segments of the concealed carry community; however, accessory styling had not kept pace. Diana was constantly on the hunt for a bag that met an elevated style and could be carried anywhere, anytime.

Then one day Diana found a bag pattern that was all of that then developed a belly band holster that meets everyday wear as well as sporting wear need.  The Belle & Rae (named for Diana’s Granddaughters) handmade line of bags was borne of Diana’s need for something with an elevated style for concealed carry. 

Uptown Conceal is a small, family owned business. 

One of the owners is RJ – Diana’s son who is member of a local law enforcement agency and has been for almost 20 years. He has spent the past 15 years teaching other law enforcement personnel defensive tactics and he teaches active shooter defense to local education organizations and other organizations.  He reviews every product as the final quality control. He makes sure that what Uptown Conceal carries is high quality, can be used safely and makes user sense.  We believe that he is uniquely qualified to ensure you get the best and that it works correctly.  He carries concealed every day and have for years and knows the pain of a poorly fitting holster and how hard it is to find good quality.  

Another Owner is Diana’s husand – Mike.  We’ve been married almost 20 years.  Mike has over 40 years in the retail industry and knows great products and guides the production process to make sure everything Uptown Conceal offers you is Discreet, Stylish and helps concealed protection.

The bags began selling faster than we could get them made

we decided to set out to create the stylish, high quality concealed carry accessories  for you the most discriminating people in the world.  Current production time for all Belle & Rae Handmade accessories is 14 days.
