A framed piece of Senegalese textile artwork in a Brooklyn house tour captured our consideration not too long ago. After discovering its supply, St. Frank, we had been delighted to search out that there’s extra the place that got here from. The San Francisco retailer, which was named after St. Francis of Assisi (the son of a rich textile service provider, who devoted his life to serving to the poor), was based by Christina Bryant in 2012 with two core targets in thoughts: to economically empower artisans from low- and middle-income nations and to protect their textile traditions. “I spotted that it was tough to discover stunning items for my house that spoke to my values as a world citizen. I wished my house to inform the story of who I’m, and that want was the muse for constructing St. Frank,” she advised Forbes. The St. Frank shops (there are outposts in New York Metropolis and East Hampton) carry a big choice of handmade wares—desk linens, throw pillows, rugs, and extra—however it’s their assortment of framed textiles, sourced from all around the world, that impressed us most. Listed below are just a few favorites.
Extra textiles love forward:
