Madras fabric is known throughout the Caribbean for its plaid pattern & bright coastal colors. During national celebrations, Antigua & Barbuda are all madras’ed up in a red, gold and green madras fabric as the main part of their national dress.
From the wise ones...
to the wild ones...
the Antiguan people raise their flag to this red, green and gold.

It’s Feel Good Friday and we got some good news for ya! So which do you want first… the good news… or more good news?
Good news: We’re so excited to announce that we’ve been given the green light to start making totes again! (Back in April, we were deemed non-essential so we had to stop tote production due to the Governor’s COVID orders).
More good news: For the past 3 months, we turned our attention to making face masks for our customers and donating face masks to hospital workers (don't worry, we didn’t go into hibernation mode. If anything, we got busier producing all these face masks).
Tis the sea-sun as summer is officially here! We’re feeling pretty shore that it’s going to be a great summer! Here’s to shell-abrating good times with great people..
