Brandii Holmdahl and Sara Crapuchettes were both born and raised in Alaska. They were childhood friends, went to the same church, dated the same guys, hung out in the same crowd - Brandii even lived on Sara's couch for awhile. But most importantly, they became infatuated early on with Alaska's pristine seafood. Both Brandii & Sara are now recognized leaders in the seafood industry and decided to team up with their expertise to become the Selkie Girls.
Selkie's are mythological female creatures found in Scottish, Irish and Faroese folklore. Similar creatures are also described in the Icelandic traditions. Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea and are guardians of all sea life, but shed their skin to become human on land. Brandii & Sara believe in the power of women, protecting the innocent, the importance of standing up for what's right, and staying true to their beliefs. They also never underestimate the power of a great tube of mascara and the magic of lipstick.
