Inspired by one of the few remaining unspoiled treasures, Daufuskie Island, South Carolina, Spartina 449 embodies the true beauty and spirit of Island Living.
Our mermaid is inspired by the tales of sailors, who after nights of indulging in island spirits, gazed into the moonlight ocean and were convinced they saw mermaids swimming nearby.
The company began in 2009 as an inspirational idea by company founder and owner, Kay Stanley, while living at her original seaside cottage on the small island of Daufuskie. A bridge-less island, Daufuskie is located just one nautical mile from world-famous Hilton Head Island and is known for its eclectic charm, natural beauty and unique history. Stanley imagined a linen and leather handbag collection that honored the island's unique heritage, boasting colorful patterns and timeless stories.
