As I’ve mentioned, we live in a cold weather climate, and in many ways, this winter has felt like a version of hibernation. This season has been a time of planning, preparation, and rest. Now I am so thrilled to finally present the first phase of our store’s expansion into more depth and breadth of product offerings.
Don’t get me wrong, my first and primary love is still our hand-stitched kantha blankets, made by women whose lives have been redeemed in Bangladesh. But I started to wonder, what other great stories are there out there? What other great products are being produced by people whose work honours their humanity and brings them dignity?

I look forward to revealing more about each product – the people and materials behind them – over the coming weeks & months. For now, I am delighted to step into a new season of growth and change.
