Frances Lab is a creative studio and brand, created by Johnna West, based out of Brooklyn, New York. 

What started as a part-time hobby for us in the summer of 2013 has now grown into a full-time design and stationery studio. Although fine gift and stationery goods are now the main fruit of our endeavors, Frances Lab’s real passion and goal is to offer simple, intentional design for daily life. We believe that beauty is in the routine, in the small, in the slow, and above all in the details.

Whether it’s a thoughtful gift, a handwritten note or a notepad that doesn’t leave your side, we believe objects of deliberate design and quality material should be a given, and we strive to offer goods that our customers feel reflect their own care and consideration.

For all the people, places and ideas that have inspired us, Frances Lab is an extension of our gratitude, an homage to the beauty in the everyday and the magic in the midst of creation.
