Jenny Davis is likely one of the most passionate entrepreneurs and outdoor enthusiasts you may meet. Bold statement, yes. Spend five minutes with her, however, and you will soon see that this passion is driven by the desire to bring beautiful, handcrafted, and most importantly, functional garments and accessories to market for the people who utilize these items the most. A lost art, that she believes, needs some new light.
Her newest venture, Onshore Designs, came into being in 2010, was inspired by a commitment to make her passions her purpose and was born from the art of handcrafting. She understands, more than anyone, the importance of quality and functionality and the level of craftsmanship necessary to exceed these standards of performance.

SWS was founded in 2007, and has achieved unprecedented growth over the past 5.5 years. SWS currently operates as a wholesale and web based business with a high demand for a retail location.
