Shopping, Gifts and stationery Hell's Kitchen

Time Out says

Scouring the globe for unusual design products is nothing new, but owners Luisa Cerutti and Nicki Lindheimer take the concept of overseas buying trips a step further; each year they visit a far-flung part of the world to forge links with and support cooperatives and individual craftspeople. The beautiful results reflect a fine attention to detail and a sense of place. With their vivid colors and swirling abstract patterns, baskets woven from telephone wire by South African Zulu tribespeople would look fantastic in a modern apartment. They come in a variety of sizes, priced from $29 to $335, and still exude a faint scent of smoke from the huts in which they took shape. Exquisite stone boxes made by a family in Vietnam are carved with remarkably convincing “weave” patterns, decorative leaves or an intricate dragon ($29–$220). Some items are sourced closer to home, such as Hell’s Kitchen cabinetmaker Beau Van Donkelaar’s one-of-a-kind cheese boards composed of different-colored wood offcuts ($199). This is a great place to find reasonably priced gifts, from handmade Afghan soaps ($8.25) to Italian throws (from $69), plus cushions, glassware, toys and much more.
