The Talbert Pipes Story

Talbert Pipes was founded in 1998, shortly after Trever Talbert won the first Pipes & Tobaccos Magazine national carving contest. Emily Talbert joined the business fulltime in 2002, when husband and wife relocated to the western coast of France for seven years to acquire tools, stock, and experience, as well as adding the Ligne Bretagne brand of pipes to our offerings. Now back in the USA, Talbert Pipes continues to offer a wide selection of classical and fantasy-themed shapes for all our fans worldwide.
