FOUNDED IN TRADITIONAL ROOTS
Great designers transport us somewhere we have not necessarily been
before. Whether to a new experience, an escape, or a dream state.
And they do it with a seamless transition, consistency of esthetic, and a unrelentless attention to detail.
When I think about the evolution of the horse and the equestrians’ journey today, I am immediately transported to past decades steeped in the history of the English Countryside, Kentucky Bluegrass, Virginia Hunt Country, and Pebble Beach, California. All major inspirational sources to the evolving aesthetics of my brand.
Additionally, I think about the comfort, performance, and style for both horse and rider. As a lifelong equestrian with a intimate understanding of horses and their needs, I am a designer drawn to traditional equestrian inspired aesthetics. I am inspired by many riding disciplines whether it be jumping, dressage, fox hunting, polo, trail journeys or cross country. And I strive to create products that are relevant to all.
I believe each barn I visit, each equestrian event I attend, and each equine partnership I encounter – each holds a story of who they are and what they aspire to be. From these experiences and stories, the idea of Sixteen Cypress (16C) was conceived in 2019.
16C is the idea and opportunity to create something the market was lacking, but wants. An equestrian line that is less utilitarian. More about natural products that complement the horse, rider, and tack. Choosing historic but timeless woven patterns ergonomically suited for both horse and rider comfort, and beautifully constructed with mixed natural materials of cotton, suede, and classic fabrics of herringbone, tweed, and plaid all in a unique yet integrated color palate.
Sixteen Cypress (16C), launched in 2020, is an equestrian goods company.
Traditionally Inspired. Thoughtfully Crafted. Uniquely Designed.
