One of the pioneers of modern architecture, Le Corbusier once said, “The home should be the treasure chest of living.”  Like how we believe our polos should brilliantly reflect who you are, we also believe the space we occupy should resonate who you are.  

 

Incidentally, Feldspar Brook has found a company that demonstrates this simplistic and meaningful lifestyle. The Citizenry, founded by two friends Carly Nance and Rachel Bentley, strives to provide customers with uniquely crafted goods and modern furniture from artisans all over the world.  

 

All home goods provided by The Citizenry are created by master artisans individually hand-picked by the founders, who personally ensure sustainability and durability. Wonderful stories about these artists are provided on their websites. Read about the weavers of the Rwenzori Mountains who use palm and banana leaves to construct traditional baskets or women of Patacancha who weave vibrant, earthy pillows. Each collection is made from local materials of the highest quality, created in small batches, and tell a remarkable story.

 

We commend The Citizenry for also supporting fair wages and investing in the artisans they have developed intimate relationships with. 10% of their proceeds are dispersed to their partners. For example, the women of Oaxaca have been given new tools like sewing machines to further their business. Feldspar Brook cannot not support companies that are unabashedly responsible!

 

If you are looking for a new leather chair or a throw rug created with integrity, look no further. Your home should tell a story. Make sure it isn’t telling a story of mass production but a loving story.
