Bella Cotn is a beguiling boutique predicated on a passion for the finest in cotton.
Bella Cotn opened its doors in May of this year, becoming Cashiers' newest and freshest boutique. Owners Patti Coblentz and Diane Brady have a combined 25 years experience in the fashion industry.
Patti previously owned Cotn, a business in which she designed cotton fabrics and clothing, manufactured them, and sold wholesale products to catalogs and department stores, as well as having a small retail storefront in Brevard. Thus, was born the love of the Cotn line.
Diane is known for her handcrafted one-of-a-kind handbags, Bee Bags. She has a devoted clientele and her bags can be purchased locally at her store in Cashiers, as well as at high-end hotel and resort gift shops across the US.
Patti closed her Cotn store but realized that the demand and following were still there. She and Diane formed a partnership and Cotn was re-established. They design and manufacture their own product, thus ensuring quality control every step of the way.
Bella Cotn is all about the cotton.
More precisely, Peruvian pima cotton, one of the finest cottons available in the world today. This hand-harvested, prized luxury fiber is treasured for its incredible softness, brilliant luster, and long durability. This fabric becomes softer with each wearing. Here you will find a delightful array of robes, pajamas, sleep shirts, and activewear in a rainbow of colors and subtle patterns.
Bella Cotn is also about so much more. This boutique is a delight to the senses, from the colors and patterns of the clothing, to the natural fabrics that beckon you to take a closer look. This is casual lifestyle clothing at its best. They carry such exclusive lines as C P Shades, known for their simple and elegant natural linens and cottons; Pete and Greta, with their must-have signature cargo shorts, pants and capris; and, Johnny Was Workshop, clothes with a bohemian flair. They also carry a great line of accessories, soaps, lotions, and gift items.
They are located at 236 Highway 107 N, Suite C in Cashiers and are open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 A.M. until 5:00 P.M.
