Santore Company designer, Katrin Santore, is a so-cal native who has always been interested in detail, design, and fashion. The company was started after Katrin’s first daughter was born. “It was important for me to switch gears and focus my time on her. Santore, is my last name and the Italian family name of my fathers lineage. I chose this name as a way to honor my father, who passed away from cancer back in 1992, and his families immigration to the United States to better their lives. I am grateful everyday to pursue the American Dream of entrepreneurship and honor my families heritage, and fathers memory.”
Petite Santore came first… A collection of fresh and modern clothing and accessories for babies and kids. This clothing line takes Katrin’s multi-media artwork and translates it into wearable art. The collection includes items with an image/art patch which has been designed, created, and carefully sewn onto each of the garments. This art patch process is tested, tried, and true. Petite Santore’s collection of “up-cycled” accessories inspired the expansion into Santore Company…
Santore Company is a line of handcrafted accessories. Beautiful leather and premium fabrics create easy functional Hair Accessories, Jewelry and Purses to wear from day to night. All the headbands are super comfortable and most are reversible too! ”I have always been a hair jewelry kind of gal, and have had a hard time finding great accessories on the market for hair” says Katrin. “Being a new mom I needed help in the hair department and became excited to develop products just for this. I love creating items for the woman on the go… Items that inspire the self and add to ones own personal sense of style. ”
