The high volume of trade goods that come into the west coast of the US from Asian ports has created an entire market around reclaiming and reusing shipping containers. Jakarta is a blend of Asian tropical hardwoods that have been reclaimed from wood shipping crates that have made the journey across the Pacific. Its rich tones seem to retain echos of the journey, and one can't help but wonder what a particular plank helped carry across the ocean.

Antique Maple:

Reclaimed from barns and warehouses, Antique maple is old growth timber that is a remnant of the great forests that once covered almost all of North America. Antique maple combines honey and tawny blond hues with nearly translucent grain. Very reactive to light, antique maple has a unique shimmer and provides wonderful contrast when paired with darker woods.

Handcrafted in Chicago.

Making Something More

Tools allegory pens 3

Allegory Handcrafted Goods Co. - Chad Schumacher

A good pen is like a good watch - everybody should own one, and it should last you a long, long time.  Allegory was founded on the principal of creating deeper value in the objects we use everyday, and we couldn't agree with this sentiment more. Their pens are crafted from reclaimed woods that are up to 50,000 years old, giving each writing instrument a unique story of it's own to complement it's beautiful appearance and precise design. Not only does Allegory reuse these ancient natural resources, but they also give back through their partnership with the National Forest Foundation, which plants a tree for every few pens they sell.  Who knew you could feel so good about a pen?

Process & Materials

Allegory aims to make the objects in our lives meaningful again through the stories of their reclaimed woods. From Bog Oak to Barn Wood, to Sinker Cypress and Ancient Kauri, each material has it's own story to tell. Some of these woods are many thousands of years old, while others witnessed amazing events or took long journeys. One thing they all have in common is a previous life, and Allegory's goal is to connect you with something timeless through the woods' story.  Allegory demonstrates that it is possible to protect natural resources while still using them to make great products.  They use reclaimed wood and additionally partner with the National Forest Foundation, which plants a tree for every few pens sold.
