Meet the Indio Virgos, Wendy and Kate: Both born in North Carolina, these two share a birthday, a love for dogs, and a great sense of style. Kate has been with Wendy from the beginning of the Indio journey – they’ve worked in tandem to create the beautiful space and the gorgeous selection of goods that is Indio. 


Wendy Sease, Founder/Owner

Wendy was born with a Southern storytelling gene – ask her to tell you sometime about one of her first-ever jobs, right here in Brightleaf Square!  Match that gift for storytelling with her roots in Durham, decades of experience in personal care products, and a wide circle of artist and entrepreneur friends, and you have the makings of everything that Indio stands for: natural beauty, community, and artistry. Wendy balances a down-to-earth style with a quirky, positive energy that you can feel throughout her store. Her eye for design and great laugh illuminate this former tobacco warehouse the same way the goods she features here will illuminate your home. Wendy always has a great story to tell, and her best collection of stories to date is Indio.


Kate, Shop Stylist

Kate appreciates beauty and connection. Kate creates the visual experience at Indio, using her background in editorial styling. She has done creative visuals for a variety of spaces ranging from retail design and home space to the visual and performing arts. She believes in spaces that invite people to feel, think, collect, connect, and create and that happens at Indio each day. Come and hang out, Kate's good company.
