Salmon Sisters in New Zealand

March 23, 2014 1 Comment

We've been away for awhile! We said a quick goodbye to winter this year and flung ourselves toward summer. New Zealand thrilled us while tramping in the Southern Alps, kayaking through the Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea, and drinking Manuka tea on the rocky seashore. We felt a great affinity for this place, and were surprised by each new way the coastal landscape reminded us of Alaska.

 Cheers to spring, and to the inspiration we gathered from our travels!

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.
