Our Story


At Lilibridge, we combine our love of the beach and a passion for style.  All of our print designs are founded upon the artwork of an artist’s love of island adventures and coastal life. The streamlined form of the Lilibridge bag and clutch shows our commitment and discipline to offer effortless style. The look is sun, fun and sea inspired yet refined. Our designs blend art and accessories for a fresh approach on the classic. Bring us along as you escape to the shore, relax poolside, picnic in the park or where ever you need to carry the ingredients for a good time.


Our Co-founders

New Englanders Vanessa Douglas and Abby Votto Belge are beach-loving city girls. They met while volunteering on a fundraising project for their children’s school. After three years on the project, their friendship grew as did their collaborative success and appreciation for each other’s expertise. Abby’s business experience and Vanessa’s artistic talent led them to start a new adventure in their life, Lilibridge. 

As Abby is originally a native of the Connecticut coast and Vanessa from Boston’s North Shore, they share a common love of the beach. Between Abby’s childhood memories of Seaview Avenue Beach and Vanessa’s enchantment with the Bahamas, they decided on an accessory line reflective of a fun, beach-chic look.
