Allegory Handcrafted is a team of designers, artists, and craftsmen who are passionate about making the objects in their lives meaningful again. They believe that carrying thoughtfully made things is better than carrying disposable things because they remind us who we are. Through their handmade writing instrument collections, they accomplish this mission. These writing instruments are made from woods that have stories – some are many thousands of years old, while others witnessed amazing events or took long journeys. It is their hope that these woods connect writers to something timeless.
Allegory Handcrafted possesses the following beliefs, which guide them in their work: 1. Success and community go hand in hand. 2. It is possible to protect natural resources while using them to make great products. 3. Sharing opportunity with those who need it can create more opportunity for everyone. 4. Greatness means more than either great success or good deeds alone; greatness is when they happen at the same time. They put these ideals into practice through their corporate culture, sourcing of materials, and partnerships with the nonprofit sector. None of the wood comes from fresh cut lumber, and due to their tree-planting partnership with the National Forest Foundation, a tree is planted every few pens they sell.
