From being born and raised on Harkers Island with a rich history of ancestors who lived on the banks as boat builders, fishermen, and whalers to the many days I spent as a child staying in our family camp. Days were filled with hunting, fishing, crabbing, and my favorite, clamming. Nights were spent shrimping with my Dad. Now, I share these same things with my husband and children who have an equal love and appreciation for our heritage and home. We love and respect all of our friends and family who are hardworking commercial fishermen. Through our clothing line, we hope to honor and share these things that we love with everyone. It is truly a way of life and we are Banks Bred!
