R&F + THE CITIZENRY : THE ADVENTURES BEHIND THE COLLAB

CollabHeader

So excited to finally share something I’ve had up my sleeve for quite some time now!

Just about one year ago, The Citizenry reached out to me about partnering with them for their second collection. In a nutshell, The Citizenry is adventurously creating home goods with talented makers around the world. They give consumers access to a curated selection of handcrafted pieces, inspired by different places around the world and made by a global craftsmen collective. And I couldn’t be more thrilled that Rose & Fitzgerald was their choice for a collection handmade in Uganda using local materials. The only thing better than doing what I do, is doing it alongside a company that shares my instinct, direction and passion. It was an absolute blast.

We worked incredibly hard to co-design and develop an exclusive collection (which will be launching on 11/11!) that was all meticulously crafted by Rose & Fitzgerald’s incredible artisan partners in Uganda. The collection of house wares was inspired by rich materials and textures, geometric patterns and angles, and a palette rooted in a neutral base with fun pops of color. I can’t wait for you to see what we came up with…

In the meantime, here’s a visual glimpse into some of the adventures we had together wandering throughout Uganda; experiencing beautiful scenery and wildlife, visiting our artisans and being awe-inspired by their talent — and very simply, doing what we love more than anything in the world: shedding light on artisan-made goods in far-away places. We hope these pieces add beauty and meaning to your home.
