The Sailor's Story

Ever since visiting the Tattoo exhibition at the National Maritime Museum here in Falmouth a few years ago, we have been fascinated with sailor’s tattoos and their meanings. We all love a good story and the narrative behind these amazing pieces of body art has inspired this new collection. As a coastal brand we wanted to create a range that not only respects these traditions, patterns and colours, but brings them right into the 21st Century and into your home.

With a little bit of artistic licence we have taken these traditional inkings and given them a Cream Cornwall twist.
