The Story of Pen+Pillar

Pen+Pillar is a woman-founded brand that started in 2015 out of a love of art and connection. Our pieces begin as hand painted illustrations, are printed with our local production partners, brought back to our workshop, carefully inspected and packaged, and finally, sent to your door. 

Pen+Pillar only uses ethical production methods and has a transparent supply chain. We print every item on environmentally friendly paper, and use as little plastic in our packaging as possible. 

We are fortunate to be located in a town that boasts a 10% refugee population- in numbers, we have over 10,000 refugees in our city limits! Refugees resettling in their new city have many needs, and we can help with two specifically: employment and community. Our team is a reflection of our desire for our city: refugees and locals working together and learning from one another. We are a team of people who believe in meaningful, beautiful products that make the world better. 

In March 2021, we opened a retail storefront to accompany our new workspace in High Point, NC. If you find yourself in our area, come and see us!
