We always get asked “Where do you get all of your ideas for collections?” We keep a running list of ideas and inspiration and when it is time for one of our art meetings we always refer to this list first before we assign new collections. Nautical has been on that list for about 5 years, every time we tried to conceptualize the art we never liked the way it turned out. Our new artist Carol did a brilliant job with this collection on her first attempt. The designs look sophisticated and trendy without looking childish or whimsical. The designs look beautiful on clothing as well as home decorating items, like lighthouse towels or beach bags.
