Each common material piece is designed in our studio and manufactured in New York City and the surrounding boroughs. We are committed to sourcing locally as much as possible and are mindful of the environmental impact of our process as a constant practice.

Many of our items are made to order with the leadtime listed on the product page. If you are interested in a piece and would like to discuss a shorter leadtime, please reach out to us for options.

We sometimes offer customizable options and will make you aware of that via the product page. Feel free to contact us for more specific inquiries regarding customization.

We are committed to offering the best shipping methods available to ensure that your order reaches you quickly and safely. Shipping rates will vary based on the specified delivery method, shipping address, & total price of the merchandise in your order.
