“I was strolling down Charles Street in Boston when a gallery decked out in a floor-to-ceiling patchwork of floral Eskayel wallpaper stopped me in my tracks. Then I saw the adjoining café and boutique stocked with incredible textiles, lighting, and contemporary furniture—which, I learned, are mostly made by women. Owner Amanda Pratt conceived of the gallery and store to celebrate female designers who still have a ways to go to gain equal footing with their male counterparts. Stop in for an espresso—roasted by female-owned Tandem Coffee in Maine—and enjoy it in a beautiful Alexa Vega ceramic mug.” —Andrea Arria-Devoe, sustainability editor
