A note from the designer and founder Laurette Kittle... walker & wade started with a kaftan and a family vacation in Bali… The inspiration for my collections is to bring a little bit of the beach back home. It’s my “beach-to-table” philosophy: infuse bright vivid colors and a sexy carefree resort style into our day-to-day lives. All my collections reflect my passions: color, design, pattern and travel; all imbued in a process that bring s together ikats, batiks, tie dyes from Bali and silks from India. Our trademark is the custom bead work all done by women artisans, working at home, empowered to provide a better life for their children. Walker and Wade are my two son’s middle names (and also my husband’s). The three of them are the joy and inspiration of my life!
