Northwest Pewter Homewares
75% Off

The rich art of the Pacific Northwest Coast Indians is timeless. These tribes occupied lands that we now call Alaska, southern Yukon, British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and northern California. In the earliest times, crests and legends were applied into wood, fiber weavings, slate, copper, silver, and gold. Highly prized for their beauty, these items were traded extensively with other Indigenous groups throughout the American West.

Unique and tasteful, Northwest Pewter platters and bowls make excellent statement pieces for entertaining. With everything from 6-inch “Two Fish Sushi Plates” to 24-inch “Salmon Platters,” there’s something for everyone. Northwest Pewter’s lead-free pewter was designed by Native American inmates transitioning out of the prison system. A portion of each purchase is donated toward workshop art materials.
