Our Canadian designers are real people who have studied and practised their artistic pursuits, perfecting techniques and designs along the way. What are they creating for Christmas?
In the past eleven days, we have featured their women’s fashion accessory and home decor products made with ostrich leather, cashmere, concrete, stainless steel, gemstones, silk, metal clay, beeswax linen, Canadian hardwood and recycled metals. We thought it might be time to give you a glimpse into their workshops – there are no elves to be seen, just our designers still hard at work.
