These days, it’s not enough to sell something handmade, authentic, and gorgeous—customers increasingly demand to know the backstories behind the goods they buy. To that end, lifestyle brand Anthropologie
has teamed up with Jamie Rosenthal, owner of Los Angeles boutique Lost & Found
, to curate a limited-edition collection of global artisanal discoveries, all of which have rich tales to tell. Debuting July 8, the line of textiles, tabletop items, and other decorative objects creates a visually cohesive link among communities and craftspeople in such far-flung locales as Latvia, India, and Morocco. The result: a retail experience that makes our big world seem just a bit more accessible, whether you’re accessorizing a suburban spread in South Carolina or a studio apartment in Chicago.
