St. Frank’s globally sourced, framed textiles have been on my radar for awhile now. I am always drawn to intricate embroideries and interesting dye techniques when traveling or at the local flea markets, but never know quite what to do with them because they don’t fit with my home decor. What I like so much about St. Frank’s designs is that they blend the old with the new, framing vintage textiles floating over natural linen in a modern, acrylic frame. The result is a look that would work in almost any home.
While I love cyber shopping, when it comes to art it’s just better to see it in person. So I was excited to learn that St. Frank recently opened its first store, right here in San Francisco. Located on the design-laden Sacramento Street, Melissa and I recently visited to check out St. Frank’s offerings in person. Take a look.
These organic indigo prints are our favorite, especially as styled in their shop. Even up close, it was hard to tell this piece is an archival print of a delicate textile created in West Africa.
The grey otomi is reminiscent of an embroidered blanket I found in San Jose del Cabo a few years ago — one example of a piece I left behind without an idea how to incorporate the look into our home.
St. Frank offers one-of-a-kind textiles, like those below, and more on its online shop.
