For an explanation, see our recent post Legend of the 'Figawi' name.
We're excited to announce our brand new, limited edition, 2014 Figawi Burlap Print. We partnered with Maine's Fiber & Water on this hand made print. Our designer created this spiffy new graphic featuring a sailboat and the 2014 dates for Figawi weekend. Fiber & Water has taken that graphic and made it into an awesome new print on all natural burlap material. Each print features a white matte and a rustic brown driftwood frame. We're only producing a limited number of these 2014 Figawi prints. The first run should be ready in about 2 weeks. Pre-order yours before before Figawi and save $15. Be sure to check out the rest of the nautical burlap prints on our site.
The countdown to Figawi and the unofficial kick-off to summer is on. Whether you're watching the race on Nantucket or headed to a backyard BB-Q, this Memorial Day we have you covered with classic summer staples for any occasion.
Memorial Day weekend is here and while it's hopefully a fun weekend for all, this weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season on Nantucket. To many on the island, this weekend is often known as "Figawi" weekend and includes a regatta between Hyannis and Nantucket. Although the full story origin of the Figawi name is a little foggy, it stems from being lost on the way and someone wondering "Where the Figawi?"
