If you are into unique and classy footwear, ready-to-wear, art, furniture, and accessories, the Respoke Nantucket is a must-visit. The luxury fashion boutique at 41 Straight Wharf, Nantucket, stocks only the best of these items.

The boutique’s signature items, including ready-to-wear clothes, Spanish espadrilles, masks, and accessories, are skillfully made from designer scarves, including Gucci and Hermes. Having been made from different parts of a scarf, every piece in the boutique is one of a kind. That means you will never find anyone with a similar item anywhere in the world. How cool is that?

Micahel J. Tonello, one of the boutique’s co-founders, conceived the ingenious idea. For many years, he had been fond of collecting designer scarves, and over time he had more than he actually needed. He then thought of putting them to good use by creating beautiful espadrilles. With the help of an artist, graphic designer, and branding expert, Chris Bartick, he actualized the idea. The duo found a team of talented multigeneration craftspeople in Spain to help create their products. The team handcrafts every product, paying meticulous attention to ensure consistency in quality.

The Botique’s success in using designer scarves led them to explore the use of iconic designer silk, which has been equally successful. Their pieces look great and are environmentally friendly. Besides, upcycling existing scarves reduces wastage.

To check out their amazing pieces, visit Respoke’s website or boutique. They are open every day from 10 am to 6 pm.
