Moccian

When architect Julia and interior designer Sima met at a mutual friend's graduation, they had no idea they would go into business together. After discovering their shared traditions and deep connection with their Venezuelan heritage, they decided to create Moccian, a lifestyle company that brings art, design and techniques from Venezuela to the global community. Moccian has partnered with a Venezuelan women's nonprofit near their hometown, to employ indigenous women and maintain and celebrate the culture's traditional craft techniques.

Bright Star & Buffalo

Bright Star & Buffalo is a metalsmith company founded by a powerful mother-daughter duo, Natalie and Kelsey. Kelsey, the mother, has been working in metal mediums for over 40 years while Natalie, the daughter, studied silversmith techniques, ceramics and design in college. After their families purchased rural property in the desert of Arizona, Natalie and Kelsey decided to cultivate a life where they could express themselves creatively on a regular basis. Inspired by the wild, geology, symbolism and holistic living, Bright Star & Buffalo was born (and named after their two goats, Bright Star and Buffalo!). Their intention is to help you stay connected to the truth of yourself through beautiful, everyday reminders.

Square-wearer, Sara Harari-Buchnea is the creator of Squar'd Away. Originally from Canada, Sara has been a part of the art world for more than ten years. Using her eye for aesthetics, she began Squar'd Away to create simple objects that make people happy whenever they look at them or hold them in their hands. With its ability to soften a look or give it an edge, and countless ways it can be styled, reinterpreting the classic bandana became an endless source of fascination for Sara.

Two Tree Studios

Allison Samuels currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Shortly after receiving her BFA in Fibers from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Allison returned to New York to pursue cabinetry and create the fledgling Two Tree Studios brand. Growing up in the lush Hudson Valley, she developed a natural appreciation for exploring her backyard's woods and local rock-filled rivers. A childhood surrounded in forests has undoubtedly translated to an eye for simple, nature-based design and a strong interest in preserving natural resources.

Kiki Koyote

Kiki Koyote is the jewelry of designer and creator Kris Singleton. All her work is made by hand in her home studio in Minneapolis, MN. Kiki Koyote strives to recognize the "everyday" as rich with meaning and monument. It seeks to capture the vastness of simplicity, to draw out the story and soul of the commonplace, and to awaken a commanding calm in the midst of life's hustle and hum. Kiki Koyote believes that how we chose to adorn our bodies should not be a departure from or an encumbrance on our daily life, but rather a reflection of the beauty we know it to possess.

Morning Calm

Hwasoon is a certified yoga and meditation instructor, Reiki practitioner, and founder of the apothecary line, Morning Calm. She studied cosmetics and soap making in Korea before launching Morning Calm. We love how she so eloquently describes her work:

"I've dreamed of a humble life made by hand, taking care of the things around me and using them honestly. By happenstance, the skin care products I make have been like a bridge into that world. With my products, as in life, I believe what we truly need are a few simple but good things. Nourishing, calming, and beautiful."

Martha Oakes

Martha Oakes is a San Francisco-based artist and textile designer inspired by the natural landscapes of the places she has lived. From hiking in the English countryside while growing up in London, to sailing in Martha’s Vineyard, to surfing in Northern California, she enjoys taking colors, patterns and textures from nature and translating them into abstract designs. Each item originates with Martha’s paintings, which are vibrant combinations of watercolor, acrylic and gouache paint. Her patterns are then printed in small quantities on various fabrics and made into unique decor for the home. All production takes place in the USA with a network of local, family-run businesses.

Taiga Press

Erica D’Alessandro is the creative force behind Taiga Press, a design & letterpress print studio on the north Oregon Coast that specializes in stationery for the everyday. An anthropologist by training, her designs are inspired by the textiles and patterns she has encountered during her travels around the world: from the quilts of Amish Country to the kilims of Sweden; the block prints of India to the folk embroidery of Russia and Eastern Europe. She is drawn to the idea of translating fabric mediums to paper via the historic art of letterpress, which has its own unique texture and feel.

The Wild Wander

The Wild Wander is the work of illustrator Clara Cline. Following in the footsteps of early American naturalists, it's inspired by dusty libraries, cluttered studies full of artifacts, and an abiding curiosity for forgotten history and the natural world. Clara's hand-illustrated designs are printed with help from husband Tristan (and assistance from our team of trusty shop pets) in Flatland - their cedar-sided, backyard printing and wood working studio by the river in Richmond, Virginia.
