Sugar Hill Harlem

$15

Sugar Hill, amply named for its "sweet life," is an iconic symbol of New York City's Black Renaissance, prominent African Americans from W.E.B. Du Bois to Thurgood Marshall called it home.

And what would Harlem be without Jazz legends that inhabited its clubs, from Billie Holiday to Duke Ellington, who missed home so much when traveling that along with writer Billy Strayhornhe coined the famous song "take the 'A' train."

Our collaboration with Marie Bastide Studio celebrates two cities that we love- New York & Marrakech creating a small piece of art for every home.

Dimensions 4 x 6 inches/10.16 x 15.24cm
