Global Sourcing: Meet Baya St. Barth
Morpholio travels the world to bring you the very best for your boards.
At Morpholio, we strive to connect creatives with the most incredible sources to inspire their designs. This year we’ve scoured the internet and the globe to discover several new and noteworthy brands that we think you’ll want to know. By bringing these collections into Board, we’re placing the most current, interesting and important sources at your fingertips while designing.
Our first feature in the new “Global Sourcing” series is the heart filled, mission bound, Baya St. Barth curated by the incredible Sonia Briand.
Morpholio was invited to visit Baya to get the full story on her unique collection. Sonia herself sources items from around the world that are produced by traditional craft, use sustainable practices, and support marginalized communities. The brand acts as a vessel for the stories of artisans on almost every continent. Even better, Sonia’s passion for showcasing those stories alongside the products makes a trip to her shop an experience in and of itself.
Sonia’s work empowers communities from New Guinea, to Madagascar, to Columbia. By bringing their local goods to a global market, she is creating opportunities for incredibly talented artisans who may also be refugees, non-profit collaboratives, or simply individuals who have something beautiful to offer without access to mainstream buyers.
“I speak to them with my eyes, and there is no misunderstanding,” Sonia explains when asked about how she communicates with her suppliers and the language barriers that can present challenges to the “one of a kind” sourcing that designers crave.
Whether you are looking for unique furniture, accents, or accessories, Baya is essential sourcing for your boards, your home and your clients. Follow along or reach out to @BayaStBarth to discover more of the global, eco-chic aesthetic and bring some of Sonia’s wonderlust and passion into your projects.
