Home & Heritage
When we remember where we came from, we can always find our way home! It’s not an address, is it, Sis? It’s a space for loving, comforting, exploring, affirming, healing, creating, laughing, learning, and dreaming. It’s for honoring ties and traditions.
From Ankara to Zulu, our mother country is filled with beauty. That’s why we’re celebrating the gorgeous patterns of all African regions in our Spring 2023 Box—and giving back to the people who created them.
This spring, we’re donating 10% of your box purchase to charities that support women and families in five regions of Africa that inspired our designs.
Speaking of home, our new box designs were created by in-house talent—Sisters From AARP Art Director Dian Holton!
Holton drew from both home and heritage to render the gorgeous patterns that you’ll also see on home and fashion accessories inside your box. Thanks to her parents, who were in the military, she has called many places home—including Berlin and Seoul, South Korea. Currently packing her bags for Morocco and with plans to visit Senegal, this lifelong traveler says, “For this project, I leaned into the iconography and textile artistry of Africa and the diaspora. You’ll see elements of tribal textiles from across the continent and cowrie shells and beadlike patterns.” Before studying graphic design and fashion, she developed her love of fabrics at home: “I watched my mom—a
fellow FAMUan [Florida A&M University alumna] who has a degree in fashion—designing and making clothes. She shares my love of colors, textures and patterns.”
Sisters From AARP is also proud to bring you special finds from West African artisans and farmers, as well as custom creations and other products to help you invite beauty, warmth and good vibes into your space.
