GOBLE Canadiana Collection Explores the Landscapes of Canada

The idea evolved from Cindy Goble’s coast-to-coast travels, her vision for a unique design project resulted in the Canadiana Collection. Goble has travelled from the “Rock” (Newfoundland) to Canada’s Pacific shores, in British Columbia. She decided to dedicate her first capsule collection to the landscapes of Canada. So, it is no coincidence that the GOBLE Canadiana Collection appears at the same time as the country is celebrating its 150th year.

GOBLE Canadiana Collection Infinity Wool Scarf Maritimes

As a Canadian, this grouping of designer hand-knits and silk prints will immediately take you back a few years (or more than a few) with imagery of the multi-striped Hudson’s Bay blanket. In 1800, the Husdon Bay Company commissioned the manufacture of these iconic off-white (they call it Oxford White) blankets, with four primary coloured stripes. These wool covers served the purpose of being warm, with the unfortunate addition of also being heavy and itchy.

GŌBLE’s Canadiana Collection has nothing to do with childhood memories. Designed as statement pieces and contemporary wardrobe patterns. Colourful interpretations from Goble’s cross-country travels inspired her reflection of Canada’s landscape in four major hues.

The Maritime coastal waters appear in medium-blue backgrounds. Captured in a tan shade are the endless expansive wheat fields of the Prairie provinces. And, her selection of dark-chocolate brown suits the awe-inspiring granite spires of the Rockies.

Goble did not stop at colour in this collection that pays tribute to Canada’s 150th anniversary. The grouping includes warm woollen knits for those cold, dark nights that we know will eventually return in the autumn. She uses whimsical touches of fox and beaver fur for design flair. For the warmer months of the year Goble created a playful grouping of bright silk scarves.

Elegant Hand Knit Designs for Modern Women by Cindy Goble

Cindy Goble did not exactly “fall” into her trade, she is the third generation in a family of knitters, but she is certainly focused on establishing GŌBLE as a luxury women’s fashion brand. Based in London, Ontario, Cindy Goble’s heritage is a mix of German and Lithuanian. Goble was taught to knit by her mother, and she has successfully imparted her artistic skills to her daughter Grace.
