On the surface, the St. Frank Anatol Kilim V and the mohinders City Slippers have a great deal in common. They are both unique, high-quality, and skillfully hand-woven products. And, they each have a nice pop of bright color! From a branding standpoint, our companies have chosen to lead with high-quality products even though each of us places a high priority on giving back. If you dig deeper into St. Frank, you’ll discover a philosophy of giving back that is much the same as ours at mohinders. We both ‘Give Back by Sourcing Right.’ This means that we source from artisans in developing countries that are highly skilled, paid fairly, and have passion for their craft. St. Frank sources from highly skilled artisans all over the world whose skills have been passed down from generation to generation. At mohinders, we’ve partnered with a shoe-making cooperative in Northwestern Karnataka (India) consisting of 2nd and 3rd generation shoe-making artisans that are really good at what they do.

Big ups to St. Frank for rewarding local artisans for their ingenuity and skills! And for creating some awesome products!
