Welcome to Beth & Tracie Barbados – the ideal on-line boutique to satisfy the discerning sun worshipper on her holy grail for that perfect kaftan or sundress for holidays in sunnier climates. My collection is ultra feminine and one that reflects the perfect holiday vibe – easy and effortless!
I have always loved the Caribbean but especially this little island called Barbados and affectionately known by the locals as Bimshire. In 2004, I uprooted my life in London to follow my dream to live in Barbados and once I settled here, I struggled to find that perfect tunic or kaftan for my new lifestyle in this Caribbean heat! I wanted beach tunics that looked cool and relaxed– something that could translate effortlessly from beach wear to poolside dining and who knows maybe a little après beach! So with that in mind, in 2005 the Beth & Tracie label was born and my aim was to design and manufacture a collection that looked equally fabulous on the cobbled streets of St Tropez, or the markets in Ibiza or for that matter, down the Kings Road in London on a summer’s day over a pair of jeans.
Beth & Tracie range covers kaftans, tunics, cover ups, sundresses and sarongs in cottons and voiles that explode with tropical and pastel hues acting as backdrop for my signature embroidery with a subtle amount of sequins scattered and sewn in by hand. This year’s embroidery designs are based on wild orchids, hibiscus flowers and pineapples. All our products are handmade and nothing is mass-produced so you might see a slight variance from the pictures.
I want to thank all my customers who have visited my store in Barbados … you are all the inspiration for launching this website! At last you will be able to view my new collections and purchase in the comfort of your own home before going on your holidays. Or we will always be happy to see you at Beth & Tracie boutique in Barbados. I hope you enjoy browsing the site and like what you see, love what you purchase and last but not least – happy holidays!
Sweet fuh Bajan days ……………….!
