One of the things that is always tough to gauge as a start up owner is if people will like your products. This entire collection was born out of my idea to create a resort line of accessories that were both luxury and sustainable straw products sourced from all over the world. A few summers ago, I was invited by my friend, photographer, and captain of the Aquarius, Jason Beaucourt (@jassbeaucourt) to sail with him and 6 other friends around the island of Corsica, located in the Mediterranean, just south of the French mainland.
I took advantage of what I knew would be some of the most compelling landscapes, and brought as much of my collection as I could chuck into a large check-in. This was going to be the most Instagram worthy trip ever so I just had to ensure my products were photographed during this adventure.
From the moment I landed in Calvi, almost instantly I got compliments about my Fino Hat and Victoria Baskets. Women were in love with my look. They loved our straw baskets with handles and the classic look of our finely hand woven Panama hat.
It was immensely satisfying to hear such fabulous feedback from total (and super stylish) strangers. It was then that I knew my love for our products wasn't a bias opinion... it was definitely universal.
The azure Mediterranean waters & sophisticated beach towns in the South of France require a look that is effortless & chic. Our collection made us feel right at home in Corsica.
Our big floppy hats, Panama hats, and Victoria Straw Baskets were the perfect accessories for the most elegant and exotic #SandHEscapade
Brought my collection of Victoria Basket and Fino Hats too. Our beautiful Straw Baskets with handles are made in Ghana and here they are living the good life in Corsica. The Fino Hat, made in Ecuador, was customized using our Valencia Bow in Navy.
