The bits of leather we wrap around our handmade journals are gathered willy-nilly from farms and flea markets and the shoppes of cobblers, cordwainers and upholsterers across the world. Much of the leather has not grazed in a pasture for many decades and some, over a century. Leather straps and handles on our bags are obsolete, military-issue gun slings. Some of which have travelled from country to country in the hands of Americans. And of those well-travelled, many have been oiled and cared for over the years, few have names engraved or drawn within and upon them. Others yet, are dead stock, squirreled away for some war that they didn’t make. Read more →
Our decoupage comes from antique books found wherever treasures are found. We pour through pages and pages piecing together collections that we drool over. We then coordinate each image with the shapes of our blocks and re-print on Epson paper, adhere with PH Neutral bookbinding adhesive and finish with a protective layer of acrylic sealant. Read more →
Our antique fabric comes from 19th-century-ladies’ house dresses, curtains, unfinished quilts, mattress ticking, scraps and feed sacks and grain sacks, found wherever they can be found. Our waxed canvas comes from a local 6th generation company whose roots go back to Philadelphia in the 1800s. Our collection consists of 6 selected colors that are hand dyed and waxed. Read more →
Our tree swings come with Manila rope for hanging. Manila rope is a natural fiber and will self-abrade internally and shrink (10% to 15%) when wet. You will see the swing rise after a rain, and drop again with use. Peg and Awl is not responsible for the deterioration of the manila rope. Replacement manila rope can be purchased from any local hardware store. Pro-Manila Synthetic rope can be purchased as an upgrade through us. The pro-manilla rope looks and feels like rope, with a brighter, whiter colour. It does not rot or shrink. Read more →
