"An albatross is the grandest living flying machine on Earth."

Those are the first words in the article written by Carl Safina for National Geographic titled On The Wings of the Albatross, which was the inspiration for our name. Safina goes on to describe how the albatross can spend months, sometimes years beyond site of land and cross oceans just for breakfast.

"Seek Refuge from Within."

Our tagline stems from a passage in Safina's article where he describes how the albatross is exposed to the most hellacious punishment on the ocean; "they have no cover and must find refuge from within," he writes. We promote the independent spirit in everything we do and one of our goals is to showcase lesser known independent designers to our customers.

But as tough as the albatross is they run into trouble with fishing boats and are in decline in some areas.
