Socially-Conscious Design Makes A Powerful Statement
Being confined to our spaces like never before has shed light on every facet of our homes: the look, the function, the comforts— and with renewed potency, the intentions behind the items we live with. While consumer activism gained fresh credence in 2020, a rising tide of young design brands have been defining a new model of ethical production at scale for years
 
Like the Stockman sisters, Christina Bryant too found the spark for St. Frank, her luxury home goods brand, while abroad. Living in rural Rwanda, Bryant became enamored with the exquisite Agaseke baskets made in her village. So spurred a business model that works with artisans in under-resourced communities to design and produce product lines. (To date, St. Frank supports jobs in more than two dozen countries.) “We showcase traditional craft as art form,” says Bryant, adding that her Oaxacan embroidered tablecloths take four women an entire month to create. “Our model is the opposite of exploitative. We make a premium product that the handiwork deserves.”

BEAUTY SLEEP
ST. FRANK UNVEILS ITS FIRST BEDDING COLLECTION. BY KANIKA TALWAR
Seven years ago, St. Frank founder Christina Bryant combined her passions for international development and arts into the creation of an ethical home decor store. Now, the company opens a colorful mosaic showroom and headquarters in the heart of Tribeca and premieres its first bedding collection with duvets, shams and sheets. Based on an existing favorite fabric, the Star Muong pattern comes in a new hue of a faded Moroccan blue. Another bedding created by the North African Berber tribe is an Iris Cactus Silk pattern, mimicking the tattoos of the tribal women, now available in blush. In keeping with the brand’s mission to protect traditional artisans, part of the proceeds of the Portugal- made products will go to St. Frank’s Artisan Support Fund to help partners continue to grow. From $95, 78 Main St., East Hampton, stfrank.com
