Apse is a brand of ethically made goods, handcrafted goods designed to break off shackles and spread personal and global freedom

Apse (All People's Shackles Exchanged) was birthed from the belief that adornment has a subtle yet powerful way of amplifying one's identity, and that a simple act can bring real freedom.

After falling for each other in art school, Jarod and Hayley married in the summer of 2015, and in a collision of love and creativity they launched Apse the following autumn.

During an unexpected and rapid bout of anxiety shortly after their marriage, Hayley, terrified of this new-found intimacy, found herself overcoming her fear and doubt the moment she chose to acknowledge who she was; full of vision to be realized, justly tender, and never second best. Moreover, her anxiety became infinitely weaker in the moments she spoke over Jarod his truest qualities; compassionate at the core of every effort, sensitively practical, and always in pursuit of victory. Nothing was more inspiring to her than this simple phenomenon, where freedom was just around the corner of adorning herself and her husband in identity.

At the core, we are handcrafting poetic emblems of victory, meaning every one of our pieces has been designed with a message of identity for you to be reminded of. It is our hope that when you wear one of our pieces, the same wonderful occurrence can take place for you, where your shackles would be exchanged for adornment, and more so, that the lies you hear would be silenced by the celebratory sounds of truth surrounding you.


We have partnered with 3 pivotal non-profit organizations working to break shackles and bring freedom to those who are caught in the cycle of sexual abuse. With every purchase, we donate 10% to the organization of your choice, and your dollar is put to work educating teens, freeing and advocating for survivors, and restoring intimacy.

We handcraft every one of our products, from beginning to end, in our humble Bellingham studio.

We are committed to sourcing materials that are ethically and sustainably manufactured. All of our materials are sourced entirely from within the USA.

Our employees are paid above living wages and are so much more than just employees.

Over all, we are dedicated to ensuring our products give life, not take.
