} Think & Ink




Sometimes, all you need is a shape. Or 2 dozens of the same shape in a single item.

Think & Ink Studio back in Richmond (BC, Canada) does just that, creating mostly paper items filled with cool geometric designs and smart color combos. Prints, notepads, cards… THAT MOUSEPAD. Wow, I want it. :D

Jenna Rose‘s work is cute as a button! Each piece of cloth is hand screen printed in house using non-toxic waterbased pigments on natural and organic materials, all mastered in the country side, in Ontario (Canada). Adorned with cute patterns, fabrics are usually organic cotton or hemp or linen, or a blend of these.

She was an Etsy Featured Seller a year ago, an interesting read! :)

} Desperately Different



Desperately Different is a brand designed by Katya Revenko in the Toronto area. And the clothing is exactly that: wonderfully different!

Shapes and cuts are unique and stunning. Head turning! :)

} Just Work



Recently, I found a gem. This shop is called Just Potters, and it is brought by Just Work, a social initiative based in Vancouver, Canada.

In their pottery shop, Just Potters employs people from the area who have barriers to traditional employment, for example homelessness, addiction or physical disabilities.

I am totally in love with the general rustic look of this shop! Reminds me of old vintage pottery pieces you can sometimes find in flea markets!

A great initiative, and great results! :)
