She cuts the fastest, most beautiful fillet. She ties the strongest bowline knot. She has steel toes in her boots. She cooks best when her pot slides with the motion of the waves. She naps in her raingear on piles of fish. She mends nets with skilled fingers. She stays awake on wheel watch to bring her boat safely to port.

We love Trade: Maersk + Salmon Sisters

June 24, 2017

Last summer, we had the opportunity to host a film crew from Maersk, a Danish shipping company that plays a major role in Alaska's seafood industry, during our fishing season. This project made us think about what it means to share the fish we catch and our designs with the world. Our passion is providing people with healthy sustainable wild seafood, and honoring our relationship with the ocean by creating good sand garments that speak to the wildness in all of us.
