Store History

  • Founded by: Karen Chien
  • Headquarters: New York, NY

New York-based interior designer Karen Chien recently launched a webshop that mixes home decor, fashion, and vintage items found during her travels. Her collection includes alpaca blankets hand-crafted by Peruvian knitters, who she works with directly via a local non-profit group.

The baby alpaca throws are available in four styles, ranging in price between $535 and $825. Soft and lightweight, they're "summer" blankets that can be hand washed. For details on the material, click here.

Other finds in the catalog include vintage seltzer bottles from Argentina and antique subway signs from New York. Priced from $75 to $125, the seltzer bottles are available in green, blue, and clear class. Antique 1900s subway signage goes for around $1,200.
