Inside The Square - Designing With Artisans


Earlier this week our friends at Nest, a nonprofit organization committed to empowering global artisans worldwide, held one of their monthly co-op salons at our New York Square.

Joined by contemporary designers and supporters from both Brand Assembly and Nest's respective communities the evening was centered around designing with artisans. Led by Nest's Marika Shiga the panel also featured insight from emerging designers and leaders in the field including Lauren Hurst of Maiyet, Nicole Heim of Cienne and Gillian Tozer of Truss.

From sourcing expertise to supporting local economic growth there were many incredible takeaways from the conversation! Enjoy this look into the inspiring event and for more information visit Nest's website to learn about their initiatives, resources for brands and general ways to get involved with the community. You can also learn more about Brand Assembly's involvement with Nest's Artisan Leadership Summit which occurred earlier this month.
