Accessible only by boat, in a seaside cottage nestled on the small island of Daufuskie near Hilton Head, South Carolina, an idea began in 2009. Inspired by the island’s character and natural beauty, company founder and CEO, Kay Stanley, imagined how linen and leather could marry with colorful patterns and timeless island stories. That thought became a beautifully coordinated handbag collection beloved by women everywhere.
More durable than commonly used cotton, the exterior linen on Spartina’s handbags is additionally protected with a water and stain resistant coating. Combine this with Spartina’s eco-friendly, water-based inks, and the result is a faithfully crafted and luxurious line of stylish linen handbags and accessories.
Spartina 449 donates a portion of its proceeds to the Daufuskie Island Historical Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to education, scientific discovery and charity for the purpose of the preservation of the cultural heritage of Daufuskie.
