selkie. sel·kie. also sil·kie. noun.

A creature or spirit in Scottish and Irish folklore that has the form of a seal but can also assume human form. Alternative forms[edit] saelkie, selky, seilkie, sejlki, shelky, silkey, silkie, sulky

A typical folk-tale is that of a man who steals a female selkie's skin, finds her naked on the sea shore, and compels her to become his wife. But the wife will spend her time in captivity longing for the sea, her true home, and will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean.  Once she discovers her skin, she will immediately return to the sea.

Filled with color, exuberance and power, this collection is for the Selkie women everywhere, setting themselves free.

Be Mine Valentine

Shabby Chic romance is brought to life in this collection, fully embracing femininity, softness, kissing, and self-love. Layers and layers of pretty pink prints to decorate yourself, immerse yourself! Climb into silk rose gardens, lacy frills, and powder pink hues. It's love! Love is an almost indescribable feeling, but perhaps we'd compare it to climbing into a hot bath, a giant claw-foot tub, candles burning, and petals floating on the baby blue water. It's in the fit of a perfect little dress, or running across cobblestone streets in the rain, high heels clicking, and bare legs shivering as you throw on your coat. Love is getting a kiss on the cheek when you least expect it, or writing letters and bravely dropping them in someone's mailbox. It's curling up with your cat and a really good book, pulling on thick socks, and soft pyjamas. It's fresh sheets that smell like lavender soap, crisp, and neatly tucked. It's organized bedside tables decorated with small vases of roses, breakfast in bed, hot coffee with a slice of cake, love is the sound of family on the other end of the phone, or watching the stars and pointing out constellations. It's electric chills when that special someone accidentally brushes your leg with their hand. Love is pink boxes filled with chocolates and tied up with satin ribbons on a cloudy day. It's sitting snug with someone you love in a small booth at a crowded restaurant, sipping oysters and pouring way too much red wine, speaking loudly in each other's ears. It's all this and so much more... it's new babies, new romance, it's recognizing the things you love in yourself... it's the reason to live!

We celebrate Valentine's Day with sweet urgency and bring you a collection dedicated to more love in 2023! Here's to that.
