Founded in 2020 by Joy Timmer and Sophie Quinn, Anegada is a luxury beach and resort wear brand specialising in light, easy wearing, organic cotton pieces. Evoking a luxury Carribbean vibe, artisanal craftsmanship is behind each collection using hand block-printing techniques – each made by hand, so not one piece will ever be the same.
"We first dreamt about building our brand during our travels to India in 2018, the time we first witnessed the true magic of block printing. Blown away by the colour, technique and utmost care placed into this tradition, we really wish to share it with the world - keeping this beautiful, artisanal craft alive."
Meeting on day one of university, and supporting each other ever since, Joy and Sophie have built an incredible friendship - and now, business partnership. Both successfully graduating with Management and Marketing degrees, they have loved putting knowledge learnt into practice, knowing exactly what they wish to capture in their brand.
"The heart of Anegada has been, and forever will be, quality of materials, vibrant colour and artisanal personality - with sustainability always coming as standard. We wanted to capture the rich, endearing culture of India in a way which celebrates its beauty - vacation wear dressing, meticulously designed with both luxury and comfort in mind."
