SWALE is an online shop and downtown storefront located in Palouse, Washington. We carry thoughtfully-produced handmade goods that feature our rich rural cultural scene.
A swale is a space between places of higher ground. It’s a ditch, a valley, a creek-bed. It is shadowy. It brings things in and lets them go. Swales are murky and practical, voluptuous and textural. They are the spaces in between.
