Shopper’s Diary: Hand-Eye Supply in Portland, Oregon

January 2, 2017

Spotted on our recent trip to Portland, Oregon: Hand-Eye Supply, a brick-and-mortar and online shop founded in 2010 as a “work-focused supply store for creative minds.” Everything in the store—from pencils to aprons and axes—meets the three-part quality check for “utility, story, and good design,” and the store’s more than 100 products all hail from the US, Europe, or Japan.

Featured here: a collection of Hand-Eye Supply’s own goods—designed in Portland and made in the USA.

Above: Hand-Eye worked with Portland restaurateur Michael Madigan to design an apron that would satisfy “a stylish and picky cook.” The Black Canvas Kitchen Apron is short in length for easy mobility, has an adjustable neckband, and deep pockets; $68.

Above: The brand’s own Denim Work Apron is longer than the kitchen apron; it has thin cross-back straps, extra-thick fabric, and reinforced stitching at the most heavily used seams; $50.
