Birgit + Kenna

we’ve been friends for over 10 years. our common love of tuna sandwiches, have’a chips, and a slightly un-natural addiction to iced tea bonded us and from there we grew into a tried-and-true amazing friendship.

anyway, what started as a simple catch-up session over a glass of chardonnay turned into an idea. and the idea turned into a brand. and boy did it go quickly.

we came up with the idea for beek back in march of 2014. truth be told, birgit has been dreaming about designing these sandals since birth (ok, maybe an exaggeration, but it’s been a LONG time).

 

and Kenna has a pair of leather sandals from Italy that she bought about 20 years ago that she would possibly sell her kidney for. so, to say the least, they are very passionate about leather footwear and they quickly discovered that they both loved the same styles and look.

so the idea was born, and we got to work. and it's been pretty darn fun the entire time. we hope that comes through in the design, the vibe and the story of beek.
