Piper by Preserve Brands, Preserve’s first apparel and accessory collection, was first inspired when we visited the Turks and Caicos after Hurricane Irma, a major hurricane that devastated the Caribbean Islands in 2017. The category 5 hurricane changed life in an instant. From the Florida Keys, to Turks and Caicos, St John and beyond, homes, businesses and habitats were destroyed for the people, animals and wildlife who called the islands home. As we visited and talked to the islanders, we felt inspired to create a new product line to provide much needed support. Piper, would be dedicated specifically to providing support for animals and wildlife, an underserved cause. Preserve Brands decided to take the patterns of our coastal handmade papers and carry them over to apparel and tote bag pieces and wasted no time beginning the collection as soon as we returned to the States. As our first point of support, we chose an organization called Potcake Place, a dog rescue adoption agency & charity run by volunteers on the Turks and Caicos Island that provides care and permanent placement for puppies left homeless on the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Preserve Brands Crew stopping by Potcake Place to show some love.
The team at Potcake Place provide so much love to the animals on the island but they rely on support from visitor donations. They can have over 100 puppies to care for and place at any one time. They are truly a loving team of people.
Inspired by Colors of the Caribbean.
There is inspiration everywhere on the Caribbean islands and we were inspired by the gorgeous turquoise water of Turks and Caicos and the coastal colors everywhere. With a cause to drive us, inspiration to inspire us and a feeling that aligned us, Piper was born.
There is nothing that compares to standing in a warm breeze on the coast of somewhere beautiful. We imagined a soft billowy cotton that barely touched the skin, a weight that blended with the wind.
Piper tunics cotton is our secret to creating one of the softest feeling tunics you can imagine.
But we also imagine them paired with a white pair of shorts or summery heels that can be carried off just about anywhere. Our pieces will make you feel amazing as only the right weight of cotton under the summer sun can.
Piper Tote Bags are also made from the softest cotton canvas we could find. Fully lined with zipper pockets inside and branded with our piper logo inside, these totes will become a fast love. We created two popular styles, resort totes and a bucket bag style as well as complementary makeup and accessory bags to hold all your treasures. Piper bags are trimmed with beautiful nautical white natural handles, zippers and trims. The totes are the perfect size to grab on the go to sport a classic coastal flair.
