A Peace Treaty

We are one of the few select stores in Portland to carry this new line. A Peace Treaty combines global awareness through its designs and creates employment for skilled artisans working in places of socio-political strife. Each collection, focuses on a particular region and accessory, is comprised of a small selection of limited edition pieces.

Makr wallets

Makr is an appreciation of the simple, the durable and the timelessness of thoughtful design. A vision of the useful as artful—and the opportunity to apply that principle to the everyday. All products blend the tradition of handcraft with the contemporary. Materials are carefully selected and every item is designed, patterned and cut in house. Pieces are produced in small quantities by an even smaller group of people, and all assembly is done by family-owned companies within the U.S.

-- Jason Gregory

Parallel is very excited to welcome Makr to Portland. Thanks to Makr for their true artisan work and compassion. Each well crafted piece comes in its own hand stamped box. Belts and handbags to come soon.
Wallets retail for $75-145.

Dear Cashmere Fall 08

You asked for more Dear Cashmere and we delivered! I was told that Dear Cashmere clients would be very loyal, but I had no idea! This orange cowl neck goes great over jeans or dressed up. It is a very easy and beautiful piece!

Side ruching detail and assymetrical hem. I can see it with tights and boots for fall!
