A Note on Our Objects
Damaged Objects
Custom Works and Final Sale


We guarantee our products to be free of defects in the materials or craftsmanship. We will be happy to replace any defective products. Wear from normal usage is not included in this guarantee.

We believe firmly in creating enduring products whose lifespan can be lengthened by repair. Many of the materials in our products have already seen at least one lifetime of use, and have accumulated stories which are now proudly displayed in the character of our objects. Each further marking, crack, or dent accumulated throughout each object’s new life – and the patches applied thereto – are further stories to proudly display. To contact us about repairs, please email us with photographs at and we will assess the repair needed.

Much of our work is made from olde things, treasures found and recovered from misfortune and neglect, relics of the unusual, the confused and the macabre, cut and pulled and built into wearable curiosities, inscribable keepsakes and useable, long-lasting treasures.

Our materials have character, and that’s what we enjoy about working and creating with them. Although we strive to describe and photograph each product as accurately as possible, the antique and salvaged materials often lend the unique marks of their past life to each object. For more information on our materials, please visit our Materials page.
