Sword & Plough has been in the making since Emily and her sister, Betsy, were born into a military family. Living at West Point, sharing Thanksgiving dinners with hundreds of soldiers in mess halls, and watching her uncle, a Marine NASA Astronaut pilot, launch his space shuttle, are just a few of the experiences that inspired Emily to serve as an officer in the U.S. Army. In order to give back to the men and women that serve our country, Emily started the upcycling company, Sword & Plough, with Betsy.
Most individuals use some form of bag throughout their day. By recycling and repurposing military fabrics with a fashionable touch, and working with veterans at each stage (from product conception to order fulfillment), we create sturdy and sophisticated products. Selling these repurposed bags empowers veteran employment, reduces waste, and strengthens civil-military understanding. In this way, our bags are rugged, refined and relevant.
Sword and Plough exude quality products all while contributing to up cycling and creating jobs for veterans. We are thrilled to carry such a sustainable brand and are in love with their pieces!

Courtney Stuart likes black and white… and color. She is entirely too enthusiastic about orange, red and hot pink. You can find Courtney attempting to wrangle many small children around the streets of Denver Colorado. When she is not wrangling children, she paints. She is inspired by street art and fashion and is particularly drawn to pattern and color. We think her pieces are beautiful but still funky, they are perfect for adding some wow to your decor!
