MINNA is a New York based home textile brand established in 2013 by Sara Berks.
Sara strives to bridge the gap between ethically made goods and contemporary design. Employing a cottage industry approach, MINNA partners with master weavers and artisan collectives in Mexico and Guatemala. Our products are produced using traditional craft techniques, which helps ensure both craft preservation and job creation.
MINNA began as an exploration in tapestry weaving, and soon evolved into a collection of textiles for the home. Sara’s designs are informed and inspired by the Bauhaus, Feminist art, traditional craft, and vintage textiles.
MINNA comes from the name Sara’s maternal grandmother dropped upon her arrival to the United States from Germany, in 1940. Sara liked the story: nostalgic and a little bit rebellious.
