Less than a decade ago, Kiel James Patrick was two people - Kiel and his then girlfriend, now wife Sarah Vickers - dyeing rope by hand in their kitchen. Now, KJP’s signature anchor bracelet is a symbol of classic New England style that’s available all over the country. The company has branched out into clothing and pet accessories and is opening their flagship store on Bowen’s Wharf in Newport this June. If you follow the “life is shore-ly perfect” vibe on their Instagram feed, you already know what to expect: nautical prep, with pastels, anchors and summer chic
in any season.
