We recently re-named some of our colorway. Why?
Because the pieces that we make are a unique avenue to share our culture’s stories.
Because we believe that our culture also holds all those things worth celebrating in other cultures. -
Because a strong grounding in our roots builds greater respect for what other people and cultures have to offer.

c. 1897. This fascinating home sits at a busy intersection of the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx. It demands attention both for its location and for the fact that most Victorians are long gone from the neighborhood. There isn’t much information available on its history, but this is what I’ve been able to piece together. Dr. Thomas W. Martin and his wife Carrie Martin lived there in the early half of the 20th century. I’m not sure when they actually moved there, but Martin became a doctor around 1890, and had his offices down the road near the intersection of Bailey Ave. and Sedgwick Ave. (there is a medical center there now). Dr. Martin was selected for the Board of Alderman for NYC in 1916, representing the 41st district. The Board of Alderman was replaced by the New York City Council, 22 years later in 1938. The Martins still lived in the house in 1940 according to census records (he was 76 and she was 70). Thomas’s younger brother James appeared to reside with them around 1916, but was not a member of the household by 1940. According to the 1880 census, Thomas (then age 17), James, their older brother Edward, and their mother Mary lived on nearby Old Albany Post Road, which is part of Riverdale (a block from Broadway and Van Cortlandt Park). Mary was the head of the household (widowed), born in Ireland, and was a housekeeper. I’m really interested in finding out more, and will post more when I have some time!
