Born from passions of art and philanthropy, Pen+Pillar is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Taylor and Justin Mahlke. Pen+Pillar holds firmly to the belief that everyone deserves to feel safe, and should be afforded the opportunity to succeed. Art has an amazing power of influence, so Taylor believes that should be used boldly and as a force for good, and encourages a community that believes the same. One driving factor of their lives is a desire to serve refugees. To do so, Pen+Pillar gives 10% of all proceeds to help local refugees get settled into their new lives. Pen+Pillar is the home of paper goods with a purpose.
