Look at the State I'm In! From Plymouth Rock to Mt. Greylock, Massachusetts rocks it from its east coast to its western border. Massachusetts has a history of doing new and exciting things... just think, the Fig Newton was named after Newton, MA; Boston built the first US subway system in 1897; the birth control pill was invented at Clark University in Worcester, MA; the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated in Plymouth in 1621; and Norfolk County Massachusetts is home to 4 US presidents. [Can you name them? If so, comment below.]
Massachusetts also boasts another first - the first time the federal government purchased land for a park with the creation of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Known for its beauty, the Cape Cod shoreline is inspiration to many artists, writers and poets but it is also revered as a sacred vessel carrying millions of precious childhood memories, and some grown up ones, too. It's where Wellfleet Waters calls home.
Beth and Maryann, the dynamic sister act behind Wellfleet Waters, took their childhood memories and translated them in to something bright and cheerful - just like a summer day on the cape. They created textiles to embrace the color and natural beauty of Cape Cod. The bold colors and simple designs conjure blues from clear waters, greens from dune grass and reds like bright beacons as the sun drops and the smell of pine rises with the night sky.
Wellfleet Waters' unique patterns are printed on to 100% cotton duck canvas, an indoor and outdoor "waterside" fabric. The fabrics are printed in Massachusetts, are water resistant and mildew resistant, too. Like most hardy New England things and people, the fabrics are wicked durable, too.
Wellfleet Waters offers a range of pouches, handbags, totes, duffels, tablecloths, aprons, and place mats. They are affordable and make great gifts. Good Girl is stocking up on wine sacks to give as Christmas gifts [$22]. They're perfect for the great Outer Beach, on your summer table, or right beside you for the Boston Pops at Tanglewood.
