About the Brand
St. Frank is a new home brand built for a new consumer. We believe that your space should share your story and values - travel off the beaten path, authentic products, and ethical sourcing. Each of these qualities is woven into the St. Frank home to provide a beautiful and unique aesthetic while harnessing the power of business to create sustainable social change.
Our line consists of three parts - contemporary handmade, vintage, and printed pieces. We work with artisans in under-resourced settings, supporting quality jobs and preserving heritage crafts. Vintage items are sourced from small businesses in these settings, up-cycling to minimize our environmental footprint. Print reproductions, including our Dots + Shells Indigo Playing Cards in this box, benefit our partners through royalties and our Artisan Support Fund. St. Frank is sold through our website (www.stfrank.com), and our stores in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Palm Beach, along with select retailers including Maisonette, Moda Operandi, and Goop.
