What They Say
Our motto is “The Road We Travel.” You’ve seen it inscribe on our bracelets, you’ve seen it through the hundreds of miles we’ve journeyed in our truck, and most importantly you see it in the beautiful things we curate from all over the world. Uncovering beauty and discovering artistry is our passion and we will go to great lengths to uncover it all.
Over the years, we’ve met many designers who we love – not just for their fantastic design and craftsmanship, but also for the friendships we’ve built with our global makers. We asked many of our designers and artists what “the road we travel” means to them. Here are their words:
It’s about embracing life's wonderful journey, with all it's ups and downs and keeping an open mind through faith, hope and love.
Euan McDonald, co-founder | Buba
The Styleliner's "The road we travel" reminds me of this beautiful truth: the journey counts just as much as the destination!
Julie Coste, founder | Treasures
The Styleliner motto means freedom and motion. When I think of travel, it does not necessarily mean moving through space and physically going from point A to point B. It can mean traveling in your mind, like daydreaming. Imagination often requires us to travel outside ourselves and into new places. It means being open to new people, new cultures and new ideas, and in the end Forest of Chintz draws inspiration from all of these things.
Sumangali Gada, designer | Forest of Chintz
To us, “the road we travel” is about exploring civilizations and where we came from. Sometimes, in order to make beautiful things, we have to return to certain values and discover our internal worlds.
Dimitriadis — who wrote this one Esme?
Every human being has its own unique path. Most humans are lost at many crossroads but once we are true to ourselves, our unique road is revealed. It takes courage, patience and self awareness to go down this unique road. Kavafis, a Greek poet, has written a beautiful poem tittled “Ithaca,” where he praises the journey one makes before reaching the final destination. We’re proud to be a part of the Styeliner that has so clearly defined their unique path!
