About 5th & Arrow

5th – My son’s birthday.

Arrow – Betsy, founder and CEO of 5th & Arrow, began designing during quarantine, she came to identify with the symbolism behind the arrow.

An arrow possesses forward directive qualities, in that its purpose is for the archer to aim and release the arrow at a target with the goal of hitting the “bullseye.” To hit the target, the archer must block out all distractions and focus their attention on the task at hand. Much like an archer and their target, designing these pieces allowed Betsy a creative outlet and helped her to divert her focus to a task with an intentional forward direction. 

The designs at 5th & Arrow are globally inspired and hope to serve as a reminder of the places we have gone and those we wish to go.

Each unique piece at 5th & Arrow is handmade in Cincinnati, Ohio. We hope you love them as much as we have enjoyed creating them.  Happy stacking!
