Supporting Our Communities

  Dear Community,  Our office is usually lively with creativity and a place to be inspired and inspire others. To disconnect from that along with our friends & family feels surreal, but it also reminds us that in trying times, reaching out and finding helpful ways to connect is incredibly important. Here at Twig & Horn we wanted to find an organization that can touch every community. Meals on Wheels delivers meals to “nearly 2.4 million seniors annually in virtually every community in the country.” They stay true to their mission year round, but now they need our help more than ever. Starting on March 21st through March 27th, when you buy an Illustrated Tote or Zip Pouch, we will donate...

From Ideation to Realization

Every product design begins with an idea. The idea is the easy, exciting, and exhilarating part. However once you have that, you have to make it come to life.

Our totes have always been top notch, but you’ll find them to be even more neatly sewn, sturdy, and hard-wearing than before. Second, we upgraded the leather. We’ve gone through a few iterations of leather...

Drop Spindle Tutorial

Spinning wool into yarn is a satisfying, empowering feeling, speaking as a knitter who went years without giving handspinning a second thought. I harbored skepticism about whether I was capable of creating yarn I'd want to use in my knitting, and that alone prevented me from giving it a go for years.  Save the most gifted and skilled among us, myself definitely not included in that category, most everyone will make yarn which is immediately recognizable as handspun. A slightly uneven slubby single, or a dense rope-like spin, they all wave little flags embroidered on them an obvious fact: we were not made by machine. The best advice I can give to a novice spinner: don't focus on the quality of yarn, and enjoy learning a new...
