Meet the Designers!
Jane Pendry honed her professional eye as a fashion journalist & stylist for Vogue and WWD and then as a creative director, designing accessories for major fashion houses such as Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Ralph Lauren.
With Dovima Paris, Jane has created a modern luxury brand, that’s inclusive, made ethically, and embraces the haute couture experience of her past… but one that’s personal and relevant – really about the woman wearing the clothes. Jane always thinks about friends, mothers, daughters and sisters and designs clothes that they can make their own and in which they will feel unique. Clothes to take everywhere that are a closet favorite. Dovima Paris is simply chic clothing that flatters, in beautiful quality fabrics that are updated, sophisticated backdrops for accessories in color…lots of color!
“Our history is from California to islands off Portugal to the Lowcountry of South Carolina. We share a lifelong eye for hunting the piece that makes you grab your sister’s wrist…no words needed…just the look. You’ve seen it…the one that says, this is SO good. Now, we want to share our treasure hunt with you.”
FOUND’s focus remains with artisans and designers who empower women and strengthen their local community. Tracy and Christi are continually gobsmacked with the tiny corners of the world that create stunning pieces with dignity, pride, and skill. They are lucky enough to have designers recommend FOUND to their fellow artists, and the FOUND family network expands. With each season, the two try to bring something new and unique at all price points to the collection. The most recent curation includes pieces from our travels to South Africa, Paris, Barcelona, Ischia, Rome and Scotland.
Pamela Munson is a straw accessories brand inspired by classic style reminiscent of a bygone era. Each piece is handwoven with signature design elements that propose a modern balance of strength and femininity. Designed in New York, we view straw as a natural, sustainable and seasonless material and work primarily with rattan, raffia, and cornhusk. A good part of Pamela’s childhood was spent cruising around Florida, the Bahamas, and Long Island’s East End on her family’s cruiser “The Three Hearts.” She draws upon this special time with her family when creating each collection. With more than 15 years in the fashion industry at CHANEL, Oscar de la Renta, and Bergdorf Goodman, Pamela fuses her business acumen with passion for creating timeless straw handbags.
IBU’s mission is to put money in the hands of women by finding a market for the skills they possess; and to preserve cultural languages of craft carried by women. The word Ibu means “a woman of respect,” and IBU Movement partners with women around the world who are disrupting poverty and fashioning change through the art of their hands.
IBU collaborates with artisan groups to design unique fashions representative of each culture and cooperative—these designs make up about half of our offerings. We also buy directly quality products they have designed, making up the other half of our offerings. The items created often use heritage techniques and sustainable practices and resources, making them unique, one-of-a-kind pieces we hope the owners will cherish for years to come.
Reinasol is a lifestyle brand with tabletop and jewelry, all handmade by our expert craftsmen in both Mexico and India. Started by mother and daughter, Patricia and Tye Griffith, each piece represents some of the things we have always wanted to see in our home! We hope you enjoy as much as we have enjoyed creating them!
Artemis Design Co.
Ours is a love story; a magical carpet ride started in 2007 when designer Milicent Armstrong first fell in love with shoes and bags made from vintage Kilim carpets on a trip to Istanbul.
After several years and lots of Kilim dreaming, Milicent found a small artisan workshop and launched the first Artemis collection out of her South End, Boston apartment in 2013. The combination of beautiful, worldly textiles in classic shapes was an instant hit, and Artemis Design Co. was born.
Over the years, our products have become staples in the closets of thoughtful, stylish men and women worldwide, who appreciate the delightful combination of outstanding quality, everyday comfort, and the use of beautiful textiles in charming, unconventional ways.
