This Modatrova Holiday Guide was curated by Shirin von Wulffen. In 2015, Shirin joined forces with her husband and entrepreneur, Frédéric Fekkai, to acquire Côté
Bastide, a 30-year-old heritage brand from Frédéric’s hometown of Aix-en-Provence, France. A year later, they relaunched the brand as Bastide, a clean and non-toxic brand with updated packaging reflecting the colors and warmth of the light in the region. Together with her husband and their children, the family spends time between New York and a 17th century bastide, a traditional country house, in Aix-en-Provence that the couple restored in 2012.

Below are Shirin's top picks for the holidays. When you shop this guide, or any items on Modatrova, use code SHIRIN to have 10% of proceeds donated to Shirin's charity of choice, Teaching Matters — a national professional learning organization dedicated to increasing teacher effectiveness and closing the opportunity gap of a radically unequal education system for underserved and historically marginalized children.
