DECO + Holly Aiken = Local Color, Local Love
Two well-known downtown Raleigh names are joining forces: the full collection of Holly Aiken bags and accessories is now available at DECO Raleigh.
Earlier this year, handbag design icon Holly Aiken moved her downtown Raleigh retail store and manufacturing studio, Stitch, to Wilmington, where she now lives with her family. But we couldn’t live without Holly’s bags available in Raleigh, so we worked together and hatched a plan.
“Though my business is based in Wilmington now, it was born in Raleigh,” Holly told us. “Leaving the city altogether was never my plan, and the partnership with DECO allows us to stay connected with our Raleigh customers.” The Holly Aiken boutique at DECO will be roughly the size of Stitch and will include several hundred style and color combinations.
DECO celebrates local designers and makers. From our perspective, no local designer has had a bigger impact on Raleigh than Holly Aiken. Our move to a larger shop space in 2018 allowed this unique opportunity to take shape.
We can’t wait to share the color, whimsy and flexibility of Holly’s designs with all of our favorite customers!
If you’re in Wilmington, you can visit the new Holly Aiken shop at 7232 Wrightsville Ave., Wilmington, NC 28403.
