vintage that rhymes with the sea
Welcome to Phii
Inspired by the places we've traveled to and the places we dream about - a little island in the Pacific, a cobble beach in the Mediterranean or an endless summer in California wearing our favorite vintage treasures. My little muse Delphi and I just moved back to Netherlands from Los Angeles and we brought a suitcase full of vintage with us! We're crazy about Levi's, Oshkosh, and other treasures that are made to last. I handpick every single item so it can have a new life at your home. Thank you for stopping by and stay tuned for Phii's next drop.
Our Favorite Treasures
Book of the Sea
An original design by Loombound creator Erica Ekrem.
Last April, when I was traveling in California with my little girl, I came across the beautiful crafts of Erica. When I saw the "Book of the Sea" - I knew I had to bring a few home to Netherlands.
Erica designed & bound the original shell book in 2011 as a response to the Fukushima earthquake and resulting tsunami. Mourning the trajedy and fearing the possibility of nuclear contaminated waters reaching the Pacific Coast where she resided, the disaster awakened Erica to the realization of how deeply reliant all life is upon the health of Earth’s oceans. The Book of the Sea is an ode to our mother ocean.
Book of the Sea has been featured in numerous book arts anthologies and was included in the Metropolitan Museum of Art Paper Project (NYC) in 2015.
