MIAMI — Designer Eddie Rodriguez — the Cuban-American founder and creative director of his namesake company — fittingly waited until last week on the anniversary of Cuban Independence Day to officially debut his signature line of apparel, accessories and home furnishings at his newly opened store here at the Dadeland Mall.
To date, the store offers several styles of decorative pillows, all inspired by Cuban-esque themes, like vintage tropical bark-cloth prints and pin-tucking made to look like a guayabera (a Cuban men’s linen dress shirt), by Dallas-based manufacturer Havana 1515.
Rodriguez said he expects to soon add bedding collections, including sheeting and top-of-bed products, to his assortment through his partnership with Havana 1515. He said he is still exploring the possibilities of expanding into other home textiles categories through new partnerships.
