Having a Maine Moment with Shana of The Ropes Maine

  Moments before we set off on a journey with the Roxy surf team to the Mentawais and Bali for our Summer 2012 shoot, we fell head over heels (and borderline obsessed) with The Ropes Maine and have been completely hooked since. Thanks to Maine Ropes designer Shana, we packed a bag full of Ropes, which now grace the pages of our Summer 2012 catalog and countless other pictures from the Surf Team’s epic adventure…and some of our co-workers even sports some Ropes too! We caught up with Shana and had her share some ‘Maine Moments’ with us, because let’s face it, something about her Ropes and Maine quaintness completely entrances us. Roxy: What is it about Maine you love most? Shana: I always found the cities to be inspiring in a cultural sense but stifling from a creative and design stand point.  I like the idea of visiting different metropolitan cities but then coming home to Maine to interpret and digest everything.  Maine does not have all those big cities comforts or conveniences therefore I believe it pushes you to be more creative.  Things are not so straight forward or obvious; you have to look outside the box and that is where creativity flourishes.    Roxy: How would you define a quintessential Maine moment? Shana: Spending the entire day on my husband's lobster boat exploring different islands off the coast.  Roxy: What is your favorite Roxy memory? Shana: Growing up, I vividly remember my babysitter giving me hand-me-downs of her super cool clothes. I remember labels like Benetton, Espirit, OP, Body Glove, etc. But one item I remember in particular was a pair of boardshorts from Roxy that I wore every single day that summer. Roxy: Where will your next adventure take you? Shana: Hopefully on the next Caribbean location with Roxy!...realistically a trunk show/reunion with my college friends in the Hamptons. Roxy: Can you give us a sneak peek or inside scoop on what we can expect next from The Ropes Maine? Shana: In the future you can expect to see many more great jewelry designs, as well as a few new accessories - all incorporating rope of course!
