Inspiration for Spartina 449 products begins at their seaside cottage on Daufuskie Island, South Carolina. Rich in natural beauty and steeped in history, it is here lives slow down. The windows of their home studio are framed by the towering branches of ancient live oaks and look out upon the calm waters of the Calibogue Sound. Playful dolphins, majestic shrimp boats, and soaring sailboats pass by daily on their mysterious maritime journeys. Spartina, the inspiration for our name, is the native marsh grass that graces the Daufuskie shores and protects the pristine beaches. Spartina 449 is proud to contribute a portion of proceeds to the Daufuskie Island Historical Foundation, a non-profit organization created to preserve and protect the island's invaluable historical and cultural heritage.
