Lilly Pulitzer came from New York. Not so far after her marriage with Peter Pulitzer, they decided to set up in Palm Beach, Florida.
Her husband own some Florida Citrus Orange groves and thanks to the groves that he produced, Lilly had an idea: make by herself some orange juice opening a juice stand. But when she did the juice, it was a real mess on her clothes. She was fed up with this so she searched a meaning to hide the juice stains. For that, she designed dresses with colorful printed cotton.
When customers arrived to her stand to buy juice, every time, women loved the dress
that she designed. So, she decided to produced more dresses, exposed it at her juice stand & sold them at her clients. At this time, she noticed that she was selling more dresses than juices & decided to concentrate her carrier on designing wonderful dresses magnificent colorful printed that made her success.

The first Lady Jackie Kennedy, with who she studied when she was young, wore one of her dress with a tropical print in Life Magazine: it rapidly promoted the brand worldwide & permitted to the brand to be commercialized in the most well known stores as Saks on the Fith Avenue.

Since 1927, the Remy Carriat house, continues the tradition of fine leather, led by the granddaughter of the founder, Marie-Carriat Hiriart, who redirected the venerable tannery towards luxury and export.
In Espelette (Pyrénées- Atlantiques), Carriat employs sixty employees, the vast majority trained by the house, with an average age of 35. Traditional know-how is combined with a constant search of quality and innovation.
Today, “Carriat” leather is sold in France but also in Europe, in the United States and gaining recognition in China. 30% of the annual turnover of € 17 million is now generated internationally. The tannery works 60 % for leather goods, 20% for furniture, upholstery for 10%, the rest is being divided between business aviation and niche markets. The French luxury giants like Hermes, Dior and The Tanner involve Carriat as small local manufacturers.
The color palette is vast, with a special team dedicated to the research of color, while the finishing is careful in order to give the product a shiny, metallic, natural or pigmented look.
For Marie-Hiriart Carriat, her job is “closer to the craft than the industry”.
If the Carriat tannery has many hurdles to jump, one remains a great concern to the young CEO : “the price of the raw material, which represents 51 % of our finished product continues to rise.”
