Saltwater Boys Company was born at my dining room table on Saint Simons Island, Georgia in the Summer of 2021. Saltwater Boys Company grew out of a passion for finding cute and practical clothing for my own boys- Pierce (9) and Welles (1 year).
My family and I live on the Georgia coast in an area known as the Golden Isles and have been in this area for 10 years. The Golden Isles includes Brunswick, Saint Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Sea Island just to name a few.
While we live in a popular vacation destination year round, we love head to the gulf coast of Florida on weekends and every chance we can.
Some of our favorite gulf towns are Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, North Captiva Island, Anna Maria, and the 30A beaches just to name a few.
I was born and raised in South Georgia all of my life in a wonderful mayberry-esque town by the name of Homerville, Georgia. It will always have a piece of my heart.
I am a proud Southerner through and through and love all southern things including but not limited to: seersucker, monograms, BBQ, seafood, and antiques —specifically china.
At Saltwater Boys Company, saltwater is more than just a phrase. It is a way of life on the coast for all boys. It means playing in the ocean from sunrise until sunset. It is lazy days spent on the beach and when everything they own is covered in sand and they love it that way. Our goal at Saltwater Boys Company is to provide clothing inspired by the coast for boys with exceptional quality in mind.
You will notice that almost all of our designs are inspired by where we live. You will find hints of the beach in almost every item we have. Each piece is designed with outdoor play in mind. Our goal is to get them outside more and to make sure they are comfortable while they do it!
My hope is that months after the beach vacation is over, your little one will proudly wear his Saltwater Boys Company item and you will both remember that priceless time spent together making memories to last you both a lifetime.
