Our Story

8knots was introduced by designer Marcia Bayard on Shelter Island, New York in the summer of 2009.

With the Shelter Island seaside as a backdrop, Marcia Bayard has developed a well-curated line of custom products for 8knots with a coastal lifestyle in mind. For your summer house on the beach in the Hamptons. For coming off the surf in Montauk or Maui. At a spa on the Pacific Coast. On a yacht, cruising the Aegean Sea. 

We offer a distinctive range of 8knots products for the shore home dweller, the boater or beach goer in mind. Customers of spa, hotel, and resort establishments also enjoy the bath and beach towels, robes, soaps, table linens, and resort apparel & accessories that can be found in our catalogue.

The 8knots brand is distributed wholesale to stores throughout the US and internationally. Our products may be made-to-order and co-branded for hotels, restaurants, and other establishments. We also custom curate gifts for individual customers.
