Join Alastair and Caroline Crawford as they present their Stingray line at the Southport Galleries, on Pequot Avenue in Southport, CT. Their magnificent and unique range of stingray products includes accessories, jewelry and items for the home. 

Each piece is handmade by their master craftsmen in Bangkok. As a signature, each item has a sterling silver trim or adornment. Only the finest stingray skins are used which they refer to as the "Rolls Royce" stingray business.  The merchandise that is offered is available in a stunning variety of colors. 

Headquartered in Fairfield County, Connecticut, Crawford sells to a highly distinguished list of private retail and wholesale clients. These clients include: Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Mitchells and Richards.

Crawford introduces between 20 to 30 new designs each year. It is a discreet luxury brand that more than competes with its larger brand name competitors on quality, new designs, colour and product durability.

The Stingray is unique. The color and texture on the items is like nothing you've felt or seen before. It is quite magnificent really. The fish itself is a dietary staple in the South China Sea region. It is caught to eat. The skins, a natural byproduct are often discarded. The stingray skin is exotic and was introduced around in France around 1750 and has been popular ever since. The stingray's skin is the most durable of all the exotic skins. Fishermen in years gone by would dry out the skins and use them as sandpaper on their boats.

The combination of unique designs, handmade quality, sterling silver accents, a range of 30 colors and the incomparable durability of their products gives the Crawford range a winning appeal among its clients.

The Crawfords invite you to come to Southport Galleries to view this extensive and impressive collection. Christmas is just around the corner, and here are some exquisite and unique items for your special loved ones. There are items for both men and women, as well as for the home. 

The Crawfords will be at The Southport Galleries today from 11:00 am -4:00 pm and tomorrow, Friday, from 11:00 am - 8:00 pm.
