Pam started Sea & Grass with a vision of creating high-quality, sustainable products that combine east and west design elements while giving back to the community. Founded in the philosophy of more than just a bag, Sea & Grass offers signature handbags and totes that elevate lives and closets. The essence of every Sea & Grass product is nature, style, and purpose. Since starting Sea & Grass in 2016, her hand-woven products have been featured in Martha Stewart Living, Coastal Living, Forbes, and other publications. The success of Sea & Grass has allowed her to create the Areeya Scholarship Fund, which offers educational subsidies for children and families that weave her bags. Her bags have become well-loved, collectible pieces that last years.
Founder & CEO
A portion of our profits go to the 'Areeya Scholarship Fund'.
In Thai "Areeya" means "generosity and giving," and it's also Pam's eldest daughter's middle name. Purchases help contribute to the education of children in need, along with providing an essential income to the women in these villages. .
Sea & Grass is dedicated to sourcing handwoven bags with creativity, care and passion.

Malia is the type of friend that would surprise you with an impromptu adventure, perhaps with glow sticks and a concert ticket... or maybe even an international plane ticket leaving in the morning! You'd be wise to follow her journey as it always leads to unforgettable memories! Malia's most recommended travel is to the beaches of Thailand, of course! As a polished world-traveler and an accomplished professional, her energetic positivity drives her to work hard to play hard. As a mom to a toddler, her world has been renewed with magical, twinkling eyes of wonder and by tiny footprints trailing in the sand. Without a doubt, Malia is the sunshine that walks into the room and is a perfect fit in our Sea & Grass family.
