WHERE DID THE NAME "SUKI" COME FROM?
That's Ms. Suki, our beloved Bichon Frise. The SPCA found her wandering the streets of Seaside. We adopted her and gave her the name "SUKI" which means beloved in Japanese. Everyone adores Suki, our collection namesake.
The SUKI trademark. Serial Number 77/497932 is registered by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as owned by Slautterback Chapman Fine Arts (now named SCFA LLC).
