Frae Everyday Goods
What's with the name!?
'FRAE' means "FROM" - in Scottish dialect. It is our daily reminder to focus on the origin of things and the journeys they will take. Our inventory is intentionally curated to pay mindful attention to production methods and overall carbon footprint. We recognize that this process isn't perfect. But, are we trying our best to make thoughtful choices? Every. Single. Day. In the words of the great Maya Angelou "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better." And that's our goal.
