We all journey, whether to new and faraway lands or to a hidden corner of our own backyard. Along the way we discover new connections and unique experiences that shape who we are.
SASKIA seeks to be a guide on that journey. Founded by Saskia de Vries, SASKIA creates designs that resonate deeply with those who wear them. Made with materials sourced from our travels to lands near to our heart - Africa, Asia, Europe and beyond - SASKIA finds inspiration in the hidden corners and tells stories that expand the mind, open the heart and inspire the soul. We meet our customers along their path and help them discover who they are and who they want to be.
SASKIA pieces can be found at upscale markets around the country as well as in the gift shops of the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan, The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
About Saskia de Vries
The daughter of Dutch parents, Saskia de Vries was the first person in her family to be born in America. This feeling of duality – of being rooted in multiple places – is what inspired Saskia to channel different characters through her work as an actress. And it is what continues to inspire the beautiful designs she creates for her company, SASKIA.
Informed by the travels she has taken with her husband and business partner Scott, Saskia’s pieces – from necklaces to earrings to bracelets – reflect a desire to connect the world through beauty. Through her designs, made with hand-selected materials from around the world, Saskia gives a voice to artisans in the places she has visited. With her work, she creates a community of individuals bonded by their mutual desire to express themselves and bring the world a little bit closer together.
