The story behind the Keep Collection starts with the founding of the Twig & Horn brand. It all started with Quince & Co. founder, Pam Allen, who was searching for a wool wash with lanolin to clean and refresh an old handknit sweater. Finding no inspiring options on the market, she partnered with an American natural-soap maker to develop a premium gentle wool soap packed with USP-grade lanolin and other naturally moisturizing and gently cleansing ingredients. This positive experience led to the founding of Twig & Horn, a brand dedicated to sourcing and creating high-quality tools and accessories for knitters and other fiber crafters. So far, we’ve curated a robust collection of tools and accessories—from the luxurious Crossbody Project Tote to the clever Wraps Per Inch Tool to the vintage-inspired Kitchener Stitch Pin, and so much more. Our aim is to find and create out-of-the-ordinary, crafted tools and accessories with a fresh aesthetic to inspire you in your own making. As our collection of maker accessories and tools continued to grow, it became clear to us that something was missing—something to support and to transcend our notion of organization. Out of our efforts to inspire creativity and ingenuity in making was born our latest endeavor: the Keep Collection, a modular storage solution designed for the modern maker.



VALUE S Behind every product is a beautiful story of the maker who brought it to life—and it’s this connection to our fellow makers that we find lacking from so many big box retailers. In the last couple of years, we’ve seen many small craft businesses struggling to stay afloat and we want to be part of the movement that keeps them in business, making. Now more than ever, supporting small, local, and independent makers means we can continue to offer incredibly unique and high-quality products while supporting our fellow craftspeople. Here at Twig & Horn, we’re driven by today’s craftspeople, whether they’re working with 1st or 21st century technology to make their goods. Our focus is on preserving the art forms of individually handmade products of quality materials—while keeping sustainability and social responsibility in mind. We want to make or source things ourselves because: •

We can assure their design, quality, and sources

We can reduce our carbon footprint (by sourcing locally and/or carefully selecting sustainable materials)

We can help keep today’s independent makers, both old and new, making

When it came to designing and sourcing materials for the Keep Collection, our key focus remained on sourcing materials of integrity and longevity. First, when choosing colors for our foundational fabric—12oz. 100% cotton canvas—we opted for two timeless neutrals, Natural and Slate , to ensure that this statement piece would complement any space. We then double-layered each canvas panel with seams turned in so that the overall unit would be sturdy; similarly, for the pockets, we folded the fabric over twice to protect its raw edges from exposure–its double-folded edge makes for a cleaner, more durable pocket. Our attention to detail extended to the finer materials of Keep, down to the Tex 60 thread, a sturdy nylon core wrapped in cotton to match the canvas we used. As for the leather hangers, we went through multiple samples until we found ones with the optimal durability that also wouldn’t warp the unit over time. For us, Keep is only as successful and intentional as its finest details which combine to form a one-of-a-kind maker accessory.


VISION A less cluttered space equals a less cluttered (creative) mind. And what better way to display your most cherished of tools than an artfully arranged and ordered storage unit? We envision Keep to be a true game changer in the way our fellow crafters view their making tools—not only as utilitarian things, but things of beauty and meaning. We hope you, dear reader, will adapt Keep to your unique perspective and lifestyle as a maker, and feel inspired along the way.
