Clothing & Textiles
CGMonsters is a unique design line of Stuffed Monsters and Baby Shoes; all handmade, sewn with an eye for detail, colour, and patterned fabric.
The inspiration for my stuffed plush Happy Monsters, and Baby Shoes, comes from all the textures, colours and patterns around me.
Each monster’s personality comes from the patterned fabric chosen, as well as the eye colours, and hand-sewn smiles or teeth. Fabric Baby Shoes are flexible, durable, and provide safer crawling and walking for babies.
I am trained and work as a physiotherapist at a rehabilitation hospital but I have always enjoyed creating handmade items for friends and family. I am a self taught sewer. I started making home decor items and purses at first, then I branched into making baby and children’s clothes after so many of my friends started having children. I had so much fun designing them and they were so well received that I decided to give it a try to sell them, and I’ve stayed with it ever since, creating an expanding collection of clothes and accessories.
At Materials and Methods, we make beautiful things. From bags to furniture, we engage in a continuous exploration of materials and creative possibilities, while staying true to an ethos of responsibility, following a roadmap to sustainability, and caring about our community.
12 yrs ago I created Mich is Hooked after finding and using crochet as an outlet for stress release. Today my addiction to this hobby has given me chance to be creative in art and practicality. Hats are an essential in Canada and I get to make them fun for children and adults.
PottsieCo hand makes vintage inspired kimonos. She sources her fabric locally with the goal of adding an element of upcycled or dead stock fabric to each piece.
Taska was founded on the idea that the bag you carry is more than a function of life, it is a part of you, your identity, your lifestyle, your look! I build this into each design to make pieces that are as unique as you are. In addition to my commitment to style and function is a strongly held belief in producing products made from 100% cruelty free materials. I use the highest quality vegan leathers, textures wovens, felts, canvas and many other interesting textiles. The mixing of fabrics and textures has become the signature look of the collection and is what the brand has become known for. The collection includes handbags, purses, totes, and clutches, backpacks and hip bags.
