When is a pillow not just a pillow? When it’s cut from a cloth that tells a thousand stories, as in the case of the new collection from St. Frank. The San Francisco–based textile company became a design-industry darling thanks to its framed pieces featuring the work of artisans around the world: modern weavings from Senegal, ikat infant robes from Uzbekistan, sequined wedding blankets from Morocco. The pillows are just as eye-catching and surprisingly versatile, equally at home on a straitlaced settee as on a sheepskin-strewn swing chair. But their cultural resonances are what set these offerings apart—as does the spirit of social innovation in which they were made.
