look who made it into the fashion NEWS section of NYLON!!! we’re over the moon about this little blurb written by Rebcca Willa Davis! here’s the copy:
It’s nearly impossible to separate the story of Son of a Sailor from the story of its founders, William Knopp and Jessica Tata. The duo met through a mutual friend when Knopp, returning from a year spent traveling around the world, passed through San Francisco. ‘We instantly hit it off, and before we were even dating we went to this craft supply place and did craft projects on the floor of my bedroom,’ recalls Tata. In the whirlwind two years that followed, they moved to Austin, Texas, got married, bought a house, and launched their own line of nautical-tinged accessories. This month sees the introduction of what Tata calls their first ‘intentional collection,’ featuring necklaces, bracelets, and earrings bearing Son of a Sailor’s trademark blend of organic materials (like leather and brass) and brightly painted geometric shapes.
thank you so much to Davis, for including our jewelry in what has been our favorite fashion magazine for quite some time!
