Staci's story

As a single mother, I was inspired by women I met making home accessories on a trip to South Africa. I decided to use my talent in design to help artisans in impoverished communities make home goods. Imagine home uses fabrics from Womens co-ops to make upholstery and pillows that are sold in my store and wholesale to other designers around the country. By buying from women in impoverished communities we are able to give economic opportunities to artisans who would be left out of the US market place.
