The Allison Cole line was recently launched in May of 2015 by designer, Nicole Recomendes. Each piece is handmade by Nicole out of her home in Westchester, NY. She was raised on the South Shore in Massachusetts and spent a lot of time on her family's boat growing up, which is where her love of all things nautical was born. Using rope, a material found on most of her pieces, she puts a unique (and pretty!) spin on what is normally a not-so-glamorous tool.
