Peg & Awl is a husband and wife team, with a boy called Søren and a boy called Silas. They live and work in Philadelphia, Penn. Their 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, longlasting treasures. They used to make them for themselves, and now they make them for everyone.
