My Story

Ali Norton – raised in the Adirondacks of NY and the Green Mountains of VT, Ali is an artist and entrepreneur who has lived on St. John USVI for over a decade.  Throughout that time Ali built a successful business catering to local tourists.  In one day, Hurricane Irma destroyed not only Ali’s business, but her home as well.  With the help of friends and family Ali has temporarily relocated to Newburyport, MA until she is able to return to St. John and rebuild.

Ali created the Hibiscus Jazz Home Collection to offer custom, handmade and unique home decor that is made in the USA. All parts of our production happen in the USA- the art, the design, the printing, the cutting, the sewing and the packaging.

Ali loves creating art in many different mediums. Currently she is focused on creating a series of coastal and wildlife watercolors. Being in New England again, she’s been inspired by our local land and seascapes. She is continuing to use watercolors to create home décor that will surely inspire people to love the environment and all creatures great and small. Ali immerses herself in nature and relishes in the beauty of the wildlife which surrounds her.

This collection is designed and made using high quality fabrics that are 100% natural and biodegradable. Ali avoids plastics in her product and in her packaging. Reducing plastic consumption most especially in her products is an important cause for Ali. The pillow covers are made of 55% Linen/ 45% Cotton and the back fabrics are 100% cotton duck in solid colors that compliment the beautiful watercolors. All products are made in the USA.
