At Allegory we’re building a company, taking part in a movement, and living a truth that we believe wholeheartedly. Handmade matters.
When you are making something by hand, the idea of compromising quality just seems silly. There is a natural connection to the object that makes you be thoughtful about your materials, to make each tool stroke better than the last, and to craft something that will last longer than you do. In a world full of manufactured objects that are packed with deliberate compromises to hit a certain price, meet a generalized market demand, or fail at just the right time so you buy a new one; there is something intrinsically valuable about carrying something someone made for you.
