Tis the season of giving and rather than posting your typical gift guide we thought we’d share with you the people behind the products. When you choose to give a gift that is hand made or produced on a very small scale, your purchase supports an artisans dream. Your money funds future production, enables entrepreneurs to work full time on their business, possibly rent a space, hire help, or even afford the opportunity to have a family. We are so excited to share some awesome makers that you help support with every holiday (and every day) purchase!
ON THE FIRST DAY OF MEET THE MAKER
KIRA PRIESTLEY - ELANOR
“My cockapoo, Elanor, is the inspiration behind our hand crafted and sustainable dogwear. It all started with left over scraps on a cold wintery Christmas in Toronto, Ontario. I made a dog jacket for Elanor with a matching wool coat for my husband. Through our humble grassroots approach and unwavering commitment to crafting high quality and eco-friendly dog-wear, we are selling internationally.”
“We proudly brag about our eco-friendly dogwear and accessories. Our products are made with recycled materials and repurposed production scraps (mostly 100% wool). We make sure to keep beautiful fabrics from going to waste and ending up in our landfills. Who says you can’t look good and be environmentally conscious at the same time?” ~ Kira Priestley ~
