BROOKLYN, N.Y.-West Elm is collaborating with fashion designer Steven Alan to create an exclusive, handcrafted home collection called Steven Alan Stripes for West Elm.
The collection, which is in stores this month, includes bedding, vases, rugs and furniture made by potters in Nicaragua, weavers in India and papier-mache experts in Haiti, among others. "These artisans were able to utilize their expertise to handcraft each of my original designs," Alan said. "The result is a collection that celebrates centuries-old craft for today's home."
Price points for the collection overall range from $29 to $849.
