“Casa del Rio Collection is a luxury American accessories company founded by three sisters, Shirelle, Alexandria, and Michelle, and their mother, Misty. Having been raised on the strength of a family-run business, the women named their brand after the family’s estate in Fort Pierce, Florida, and focused on the resilience and beauty of homegrown products. Seventh generation Floridians themselves, they utilized the understated elegance of wild Florida alligator and sought to share the majesty of their home with the future by donating 10% of all profits to the Everglades Restoration Effort.
“Our bags are made in America, from American alligator. They are not farm raised; instead, all of our animals are acquired wild, straight from the swamps of Florida. Every bag is unique. Each one is individually marked by the scars that nature has inflicted upon it. We strive to create a product that will last throughout this generation and the next. We are Casa del Rio, Relentlessly American.
“Acting as Chief Creative Officer, Shirelle Minton Sioui designs and oversees every piece of Casa del Rio Collection. After studying at Parsons and Central Saint Martins she went on to hone her aesthetic at Kate Spade and Calvin Klein. These distinct perspectives, combined with a degree in graphic design, led Shirelle to truly appreciate the functionality and beauty of a clean silhouette.
