Meet Jackie, artist, designer, and the Founder of Lore and Lotus. Jackie is a self-proclaimed third-culture kid - a Dutch American - who grew up in St. Martin/St. Maarten, “the friendly island”, in the Caribbean. Probably due to her unusual upbringing, she deeply loves the sea, the color blue, and good vibes. As an artist, designer, and curator who loves to travel and collect beautiful things, Lore and Lotus was inevitable.
“I’ve dreamt of owning a store since I was 15. Back then it was inspired by nature, the sea, and especially advocating for handmade - as an artist, that was always the focus. But I've since added environmental and social impacts to those goals, too." - Jackie
Lore and Lotus
From a teenager's love of shopping global artifacts, further inspired by the eclectic shops in the "melting pot" known as St. Martin, including her own families’ businesses, Lore and Lotus was born.
With age came a more conscious lifestyle, and a desire to support those who work to make the beautiful things that decorate our lives. With that in mind, Lore and Lotus is consciously curated from sustainable / ethical sources, so everyone benefits, from the artisans to our customers.
