Very Vineyard is all about colors and prints working together to create beautiful clothing that looks great and feels good to wear. While at Cornell University pursuing a degree in Landscape Architecture, designer and owner Carol Lattmann was attracted to printmaking and textile design classes. It is not surprising that many of her fabrics are inspired by flowers and plants!
In 1987 Carol opened her flagship store in Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard, from which the business draws its name. Being a consummate traveler, in 1990 Carol traveled to Indonesia to work with traditional batik makers to create her signature prints, and thus the Very Vineyard line was born! After seeing the popularity of the line in her store Carol began supplying other small boutiques throughout the country with her beautiful clothing in 1993.
Carol, her husband Bruce, and their son Alex currently live part time in Amherst, Ma and part time in Martha’s Vineyard. In 2015, Carol sold her building in Edgartown and closed the retail store to have more time for travel and to gather inspiration.
