Keeping Up With Kiawah
Freshfields Village is definitely popping these days, with new restaurants set to be debuting this summer and new stores opening up there is no stopping the growth at the Kiawah shopping dining destination. The newest store Beija Flor, is offering a little bit more diversity in the denim department. The Greenville based brand was started by mother and daughter team, Kathy Moça and Emilie Whitaker with the mission of developing a denim line that caters to all body types.
The Audrey style jeans that I’m wearing here are some of the softest pants I’ve ever worn. You can’t deny the quality and the fit when you try on a pair of jeans from Beija Flor. They’re jeans are made in Brazil, hence the name which means Hummingbird, and they pride themselves in being a sustainable and socially conscious company. Fair labor and eco friendly practices are an important component of their business. By eliminating waste, creating socially progressive working conditions and initiating long-term sustainable growth Beija Flor creates clothes that not only look good but feel good when you wear them.
Las Olas is of the newer kids on the block at Freshfields Village. Opening up last year and bringing a young surfer vibe to Kiawah, they carry the most fun swimsuits, clothes, and accessories for men and women. This is the second location for the locally owned store and I heard that they’ll be opening up a 3rd location in Towne Centre in June. I love that the retail scene is thriving in the Lowcountry!
