Objects with Meaning

We believe deeply in the significance and meaning of handmade pieces. The quality, craftsmanship, and storytelling that is imbued in these pieces make them worthy of an Altar. We are committed to ethical and sustainable manufacturing practices with our houseline apparel, and have curated brands to carry alongside our products that share those values.
