Handcrafted leather fashion accessories, wall decals and more designer goods to shop in a city near you!
Etsy: Made In Canada returns for its fourth annual marketplace, transforming spaces across the West into must-stops for shoppers looking for unique handcrafted items. Here are a few of our favourite makers:
Look out for cosmopolitan-minimalist leather goods from Andrea Wong, a former WL One to Watch. She hand makes everything from ethically sourced European and American leather backpacks and phone wallets to laptop envelopes.
Sriracha Revolver blends fresh, all-natural Mexican and Thai ingredients to create new and flavourful hot sauce combos—like Clean mango (mango with Thai spices), along with cilantro and lime; beets and tequila.
Add punch to your empty walls with wall sticker art in floral designs, dots and inspirational phrases that are easy to apply (and remove). Vancouver’s Urban Walls also does custom designs and gorgeous wallpaper murals and prints, so the sky’s the limit!
These handmade men’s grooming products are crafted in small batches: Cooling mint aftershave tonic and Timber body wash are some of the special gifts for the lumbersexual in your life.
If you like puns, these quirky cards will have your friends calling you a card. Each card’s illustrations are drawn by hand, coloured and playfully worded.
Embrace your inner West Coast hippie with these handwoven pieces that will add texture and warmth to any room. Fiber Artist Jolynn Vandam uses natural fibres such as Soft Merino Wool Roving, which gives her products a timeless elegance.
