In the circus that is contemporary life, it can be difficult to make space for your thoughts—your voice alone, distinct from the cacophony that surrounds you. Committed, as we are at Twenty Two Home, to making room for all facets of life, we wanted to offer a small gesture as encouragement to create a refuge for your ideas. Hence our signature journals—a freshly-debuted collaboration with Public - Supply based in New York City.
Elegantly embossed with only “Jackson Hole, WY,” each sheath speaks to a connection to place—yours, ours and the makers’. Crafting artisanal writing essentials, Public - Supply practices what it preaches by donating 25% of profits from every sale to teachers who cultivate their students’ creativity in high-need classrooms around the country. “The Public - Supply mission is simple: to support creative work in our country's public schools. Whether students are painting, acting, singing, writing, or coding, we believe that creativity helps students become more engaged in the classroom, at home, and in the world.”
Thus inspired, a portion of each of our collaboration journal sales will benefit Teton County School District—the entity that nurtures our kids’ classroom creativity. Jackson teachers draw their students into a world of exploration—intellectual and experiential—just as a blank page can nudge adults to contextualize daily life. Whether a young mind or an old soul, we all need encouragement to continue learning and listening. May our new journals provide such incentive.
Beyond giving you room to reflect, this material and ethical collaboration represents a twofold reflection of our Twenty Two mission. Each journal sold benefits two communities—ours and Public - Supply’s. Just as we do, Public - Supply dwells in the details—hand-stitched binding, patterned pages, domestic sourcing—a care that epitomizes our belief that living beautifully should also mean living consciously. No matter the scale, we look for ways to visually express our values. Perching a Twenty Two Home with Public - Supply journal on your nightstand quietly attests to your commitment to reflection and responsibility.
