Utter simplicity and an awareness of comfort in style: that is the driving idea behind one of the Caribbean’s most successful design companies. Base aims for fresh, functional clothes, and works with exclusively developed knits and fabrics which reflect the freedom and vitality of the Caribbean in their ease of wear and care. Base’s home is Antigua, where every aspect of its production and design development is undertaken. A mere four years old, Base has forged a distinctive look while moulding a franchise group of dedicated stores around the Caribbean.
