This birthed the desire to create a brand that bridges the gap between functional and stylish travel and fashion accessories that can be enjoyed by all, and to marry the love for the world and travel with the love for fashion and design.
For over a year, our founder conducted market research and put together focus groups on consumer preferences, then visited manufacturers and factories around the world to find skilled craftspersons to bring her ideas to life. The process was thorough. The focus was on finding factories that had a reputation for excellence and have the highest quality standards while also operating in a sustainable and eco-friendly manner. The search landed her in Italy (Tuscany and Naples) and Turkey, where quality is always a core value and the craftsmanship is irrefutable. The creative process is from end to end (e.g. design and concept to production), so our customers can be certain that the attention to detail and focus on customer intimacy remains intact.
All Silver & Riley products are created to be multifunctional and to offer maximum utility, giving you the most bang for your buck.
About the Founder and Designer
Being a global citizen is a way of life and I am fortunate to have been able to travel to over 100 countries (and counting). I fully immerse myself in various cultures and ways of life, and seek to have deep, meaningful experiences, all from which I have drawn inspiration. From the streets of New York, Lagos and Milan, to the shores of Rio de Janeiro, Honolulu and Okinawa and the hills of Auckland, San Francisco and Valparaíso, I continue to study diligently and soak up the best of various cultures and street fashion.
What's in a name?
Silver & Riley is dedicated to my late mother, a consummate entrepreneur in her time. One of her businesses was a jewelry business. She would fly to the Middle East to buy beautiful gold jewelry to sell to her customers and would also outfit my siblings, cousins and I in beautiful gold pieces. However, I always wanted to stand out, so I'd beg her to buy me silver instead. And thus birthed her special nickname for me. It's been almost two decades since she passed away, but still, every time I hear the word silver, I think of her, hence it made sense to include this in the naming of the brand. But the brand dedication to her doesn't stop at the name alone - it also exists throughout the brand principles. Though I was a child observing her running her businesses, I learned a lot of what I know today from her, especially as it relates to customer intimacy. I aspire to make every customer feel as special and important as she used to make hers feel.
