Welcome to RED SAIL
Red Sail presents a thoughtful collection of items merging the charming beauty and clean functionality its namesake embodies. A bright red sail stands out against the vast blue ocean, a vivid symbol of a voyage full of discovery and vibrant mementos.
The wind in our sails rise from love for a well made object and careful design. From wearable jewelry and accessories to useful homewares, we take pleasure and pride in knowing the details of each item in our collection. Every piece offered for sale is something that we would be excited and pleased to give as a gift or to have in our own home.
It’s not just the artists’ work that we admire… the passion of the artists themselves that is a constant source of inspiration to us. Whether it is touring studios or learning about design philosophy and production methods, we are lucky to be apart of such a welcoming and talented community of makers.
At Red Sail we are committed to providing our guests a refreshing and inspiring retail experience, both in the our shop and our online store. Thank you for being a part of our journey, we look forward to your visit!
Stacy Maiano, owner
In early 2002, Stacy took a much-needed vacation from her production design job at a national magazine and headed to the ultra-mellow island of Caye Caulker in Belize. One afternoon, gazing out over the horizon, she spotted a distant sailboat with a bright red sail cruising the azure-colored water. The simple beauty of that moment captured her imagination, and would become the inspiration for the business she dreamed of one day founding.
Stacy arrived in Portland in 2006 with her vision for Red Sail ready to take shape. Originally launched online in 2008, Red Sail opened its doors in the Alberta Arts district of Portland, Oregon in 2011. Her strong fine arts and design background gives her a maker’s perspective on the process that culminates in the careful selection of each item for the shop.
Stacy counts Red Sail as an active supporter of artist communities locally, across the U.S. and abroad. Through Red Sail, Stacy helps to fulfill the needs of her customers, offering beautiful and functional items by talented and innovative artists with whom she works to inspire and delight.
Our awesome crew also includes Cally, Stefanie, and Gus (the handsome and very wiggly Vizsla who might pop his head up from behind the counter to say hello).
