Briland blu is the manifestation of Cristina Covert and her intense love of the sea. Growing up in the Florida Keys and spending time in the islands of the Bahamas, Cristina was inspired by the vibrant beauty of Caribbean beaches and waters. After graduating with a degree in Fashion Design from International Fine Arts College, Cristina began designing Turkish towels for herself. She could not believe she had spent so many years lugging around bulky terry towels that never seemed to really dry. Wanting to share her passion for the ocean and vision of the beach aesthetic, the decision to start a company took shape.
Briland blu is a lifestyle brand that is at once luxurious and comfortable, chic yet unpretentious. The name refers to one of Cristina’s favorite places. Briland is what the locals call Harbour Island in the Bahamas. The island is known for its breathtaking beauty and unassuming nature, with gem colored waters and pink sand beaches. Harbour Island welcomes its visitors with a sign reading “Home of the Friendly People”, while displaying a breezy Continental style. All of these aspects represent the brand and boutique Cristina envisioned.
Every towel design is handcrafted by Cristina in her Miami home studio. The Briland blu brand features products made with quality fabrics and designed with Cristina’s sense of tropical sophistication. The expanded boutique includes a carefully curated selection of merchandise and accessories, as well as future collaborations with exciting designers.
