Respoke is all about transformation: repurposing iconic scarves into gorgeous espadrilles, other footwear, hats, furniture, and now fine art! Within their newly refreshed space at 41 Straight Wharf, Respoke Co-Founder, Chris Bartick’s mixed media artwork incorporates remnant silk scarves from the Respoke shoe making process. The subject matter includes graceful whales’ tales and local iconography such as Great Point Lighthouse.
If it’s true that you can judge a person by his shoes, then it’s shoes from Respoke that I want to reveal my character! Stylish in a fun and sophisticated way, colorful, and full of life, these handcrafted shoes are wearable art. And this season, designer Michael Tonello has brought them to Nantucket.
