When Adrian Murphy began working at the Santa Fe Folk Art Market after college she “fell in love with traditional world crafts and textiles.” The seed was planted for the globally-inspired, fair trade, home goods store on East Washington Avenue. The shop showcases furniture, hand-woven baskets, linens, rugs, pillows, candles and more, curated from all parts of the globe.
At the center of Murphy’s philosophy is respect for both “global perspective and local roots,” she says. “I love to create spaces that are designed around beautiful items that tell a story. I want people to pick up everything in the store, want to know where it comes from and who made it.”
Showcasing the bounty of American-made folk art—quilts and ceramics especially—is a particular passion. “I want to support those talented, brave folks who are redefining what it means to be made in the USA.”
