THE WAY WE WORK
We are creating a home brand built for a new consumer. We believe your space should share your story and values - exceptional product, unique origins, and ethical sourcing. Each of these qualities is woven into the St. Frank home to provide a beautiful and sophisticated aesthetic while harnessing the power of business to create sustainable social change.
UNIQUE LUXURY WARES
Our products are made with the finest materials by artisans, small businesses, and vintage dealers around the world. We design and finish each piece with the utmost care. Each item in our collection carries a cultural history of the community from which it originates. We share the stories behind every work with you to celebrate and preserve these traditional crafts.Shop the Collection
Our line consists of three parts - contemporary handmade, vintage, & printed pieces. We work with artisans in under-resourced settings, supporting quality jobs & preserving heritage crafts. Vintage items are sourced from small businesses in these settings, upcycling to minimize our environmental footprint. Print reproductions benefit our artisan partners via royalties & our Artisan Support Fund.Shop the Collection
INSIDE THE WORKSHOP
Our red clay pieces are handmade in a female-led cooperative in Oaxaca, Mexico. The clay is hand-formed without a potter’s wheel. Then, each piece is finished with a red clay slip. In pre-Hispanic times, this technique was used to create compels, a tool used in the kitchen to cook tortillas. Today, Oaxacan women continue to practice this technique, passed down from generation to generation.
