hand crafted, unique

Folk + Faro started as a creative outlet and a self-serving means of producing modern items for our little Midwestern home. The aesthetic combines my love of simple clean design with rustic, natural materials; and highlights the imperfect - ah hem, unique - aspects of hand-dying and hand-painted materials.

Each piece develops from initial conception, into hand sketches and evolves through trial and error. I am a self-taught artists with a background in Art History and exhibit development. Each piece is influenced by my love of art: from gilded Florentine murals to more contemporary work - color studies of Marc Rothko, Spencer Finch's interpretations of light, Ad Reinhardt's monochromatic canvases or the tactile quality of Eva Hesse. (Currently.)

I choose sustainable materials for each product and love playing with natural textures and traditional materials, primarily cottons, linens, stone, leather + wood. Each individual piece is hand-painted / dyed / cut / sewn and or packaged in my humble Detroit-based studio.

Returns and exchanges
Generally, there are no refunds or exchanges on products unless they are damaged in someway. I will try and eplain items as best I can - please be a proactive, educated consumer and ask questions if you have them - I am very convo-friendly and willing to help!

Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. Note: I do not refund shipping and handling.

Note: In the case that your item arrives broken, well then of COURSE I will refund your money (or send a replacement free of charge)! I just need photographic proof.
Please pay immediately upon purchasing. I will send one convo if no payment is made, I will cancel the transaction and relist the item the day after my convo to you. I completely understand that the payment process is confusing for new buyers - especially when you have items from more than one shop in your cart. Email or convo me if you have any concerns and I'll be glad to help!
Shipping can vary greatly depending on region, so I offer a flat rate on each particular product to compensate for time, effort, packaging, and a wide variety of postal costs. Past customers - please note that some shipping costs may change as I develop a more comprehensive understanding of costs.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I am sorry that I don't offer it on everything, but most items I offer vary in weight, and at this point I have not established the cost of shipping to various countries. Please convo me if interested in anything and I will pack it and take it with me to the Post Office and find out exactly how much it would cost to ship to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
As always, thank you, thank you. And if you're looking for bulk rates or to collaborate for a wedding / event please convo me. I'm very open to developing custom orders!
