about our products

Our sweat sets are made in Canada! Made in small batches in Toronto and then silk screened by hand in Ottawa. The whole process for creating a set takes 4 weeks. Made with love and a luxury 450 gsm 100% cotton for a cozy, warm, and oversized look made to last forever.

Elana creates her designs and cuts a stencil on vinyl using a silhouette cameo 4 machine. Then, carefully putting it on a silk screen and pressing permanent fabric ink onto the apparel and totes. After drying for 48 hours, she heat presses them to lock in the design. 

Ceramics (mugs, plates, jewelry trays, vases) are handmade with love by Elana in Ottawa using the handbuilding pottery technique. The whole process for creating a piece takes 4+ weeks. 

After creating the shape, the clay dries for a week, then goes into the kiln for a bisque firing for 10 hours. Then, hand painted and glazed, and back into the kiln for a 12 hour firing.
