Here at Altar, we are committed to providing you with American manufactured and American sourced goods. Our two flagship lines, Altar Houseline by co-owner Cassie Ridgway and Iron Oxide Jewelry by co-owner Amy Fox strive to make beautiful, high-quality staple elements right here in Portland, Oregon with studios close to our brick and mortar shop. This model creates jobs within this city and our company employs creatives that have a hand in many aspects of the business from sewing and sales to modeling and making.

It is our mission to provide our customers with unique handmade goods, made in the USA and this extends to the labels we carry. Altar showcases an array of goods from a multitude of North American made brands whom are also putting equal care into their products, made with ethically sourced components in good working conditions.

We want good products to be available to as many people as possible at the most accessible price point possible. While we have occasional sales, we can often only offer a small discount on these items because we don’t mark these products up like a big box store would.That being said, our prices reflect the living wages we think are important to offer our employees and the long hours that go into lovingly hand making each piece we sell to keep our company alive for the long run.

We stand behind every item in this shop. If you're curious, we're happy to tell you more about our makers and the pieces we carry. Our staff is always available for questions, comments, and concerns so please reach out. Send us an e-mail at or come by our shop located on SE Hawthorne in Portland. We love hearing from you.

A very genuine thank you to our vendors and customers for supporting independent manufacturing.
