When Walter Kent returned from Iraq, the National Guardsman was unsure what came next. He heard about an old barn that was being torn down and he was able to utilize much of the property that otherwise would have been discarded. With an adolescent experience of working with his father, a builder, Walter transformed the cast-off lumber into furniture and house wares. In jumped his wife Margeaux with the idea of reconfiguring old treasures into new keepsakes for the present and Peg & Awl was born! Today, the husband and wife team live and work in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are inspired by the belief that you can repurpose goods to make amazing, functional and useful new products. "Our work is made from old 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," says Margeaux. "We used to make them for ourselves and now we make them for everyone.
