I got extremely excited when I saw that one of my favorite St. Lucian brands had set up an on-line store. Clearly this is the way to go for Caribbean Entreprenuers to get their products to the masses in the region as well as abroad.
About the owner*:
Taribba do Nascimento is a St. Lucian designer, loving mother, nagging wife and lover of all things creative. She fell in love with the art of leathercraft while living in Ethiopia. She has since trained in Florence, Italy where she refined her skills while attempting to taste every flavour of gelato the city had to offer.
About the Brand*:
At même bête the focus is on providing lovely high end bags that are both practical and fashionable. All items are hand made with precision in St. Lucia, to offer you the best quality and finishing. They work with many different types of traditional cloths such as African wax print and madras, and combine them with the finest of leather. Variations in colour and shading are natural to the leather and are not flaws, but should be considered part of the unique beauty of each piece.
