| Statement Accessories For a Thoughtful Closet |

Founded by Heather Sheppard in the Junction (Toronto, ON), Knots and Pipes designs and constructs streamlined accessories while adhering to a slow fashion ethos. Using raw, recycled or intentionally sourced materials whenever possible, Sheppard aims to create timeless pieces that aren’t replaced every season. Statement accessories that add can add impact to an otherwise minimalist look. Merging the skills she learned from her mother and grandmother in rural Ontario (the crocheting, sewing and leatherwork) coupled with a small batch production mantra, Knots and Pipes was formed.

The studio is now located in the historic downtown Hamilton, ON, “Steeltown.” Living wages are paid to staff, packaging, fulfillment and marketing are either completed in-house or locally sourced.

In 2019 the Knots and Pipes Vintage Line was added to the shop. Here, a selection of high-quality vintage earrings are available for that perfect one-of-a-kind purchase. The line is finely curated through estate sales and consignment shops across the province. All vintage earrings are shipped with rubber post protectors, ensuring they are hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive ears. 

Cheers to buying less, choosing well and streamlining our closets.
