New St. Frank Patterns

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

St. Frank shares our undying love for vintage textiles, and have crafted a fabric and wallpaper collection based on their amazing store of worldly goods. Sometimes we fall in love with a vintage piece, but it ends up being only a remnant or it is too delicate to use or it is not quite the right color… well St. Frank answered our prayers.

These fabrics and wallpapers by the yard are digitally printed, high resolution scans of their most popular pieces in repeat and made to order. So remember that perfectly worn African Kuba Cloth textile fragment you saw at the Brooklyn Flea? Well now you can wallpaper an accent wall with the pattern or upholster your favorite club chair in three color options.

Contact your salesperson or stop by the showroom for samples of both fabrics and wallpapers!

Clare Frost Vintage & Embroidered Fabrics

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Our friend Clare Frost came through the showroom last week with the most amazing batch of vintage and embroidered fabrics: many are collected by Clare in Kabul and embroidered by her team of ladies there.

Each piece holds its own story of an uncharted sojourn, and the exact path these pieces took to land in our hands is something we may never know. They are then brought back to life with delicate, thoughtful hand embellishments by talented craftswomen.

Clare teaches a design course to women in Kabul, Afghanistan. One of her favorite projects is to give the women an assortment of these vintage fabrics and let them loose to design their own unique embroidery patterns.

By working with these women she helps them to support their families, but this process also gives them an outlet for expressing themselves artistically, growing their prodigious talent and feeding their creativity.

Each piece of fabric is unique and sold “as is”. The marks of another life, wear and small discoloration only add to the mystery and integrity of the fabric. The panel sizes range from a single yard to multiple yards, depending on the piece.

A collection of pillows will also become available on The Market very soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
