Visantine is a collaboration of Ivy Thompson and Maria Piessis. We met serving tables at a New York bistro in the summer of 2010. Friendship came naturally, and the idea of working together followed soon after. Ivy’s fashion sense and creative vision paired with Maria’s love for business and design couldn’t have been a better match. We love creating beautiful things and learning from each other. We are all local, producing and sourcing everything in New York City. We live in Brooklyn and love riding around on our bicycles.
