About Pigeon Toe

Heirlooms for the modern home. Pigeon Toe's aspiration is simple: to provide mankind with everyday beauty. Highly curated and refined, each piece is culled from skilled hands, trained minds and inspired hearts.Founded in 2009, our studio exists in the heart of charming North Industrial Portland. Featuring artisan objects that transcend trends, each piece is an attempt to redefine a new age of homegrown, grassroots aesthetics. Our designs are naturally imperfect, casually irreverent and playfully charming.Each piece is treasured. Beautiful. Authentically hand-crafted.Each object emanates enduring value.The result? Heirlooms that are hardly old-fashioned. Objects that appear gathered, rather than acquired. Objects with a vision, a purpose. A heritage.Objects with a story.

Welcome to Pigeon Toe’s fine print section. We are a small operation dedicated to your satisfaction with our work. We hope that you love your purchase and that the entire process is a smooth one. We do our very best to produce consistent work. However, as each piece is made by hand there will be naturally occurring variations in each piece – making each and every one a unique treasure.SHIPPINGWe ship Mondays and Wednesdays. We ship USPS for small lightweight items, and UPS Ground for everything else. International customers are given a choice between both carriers – duties, customs fees, tariffs, et all are the responsibility of the buyer.
