The Brand

At meme bete… we believe that there is simplicity in luxury. Inspired by the islands, the simplicity of our designs and the texture of our materials all provide an air of laid back luxe. We focus on creating designs that are both practical and fashionable. All items are handmade with precision in St. Lucia, to offer you the best quality and finishing. We work with many different types of traditional cloths such as African wax print and madras, and combine them with the finest of leather or natural jute.

meme bete…, aims to put St. Lucia on the map as a viable contributor to the global fashion industry.

The Owner

Taribba do Nascimento is a St. Lucian designer, loving mother, nagging wife and lover of all things creative. She fell in love with the art of leathercraft while living in Ethiopia. She has since trained in Florence, Italy where she refined her skills while attempting to taste every flavour of gelato the city had to offer.
