We are so proud to be a Canadian-made brand, and we’re not the only ones! We wanted to showcase some of the other Canadian-made brands we think you’ll love, so we put together a list of 15 brands across various industries for you to check out!
PLUS, eight of the brands listed below will be participating in our Made in Canada Virtual Pop-Up Series over on our Instagram from Saturday, June 13th to Saturday, June 20th.
For this virtual pop-up, we’ll be speaking with a different brand founder each day at 4PM EST via Instagram Live. We’ll chat with each founder about their story, brand, creative process, and even have them show you some of their pieces/products. We will also be running daily giveaways with each brand as well!
We’re so thrilled to support and learn about other Canadian-made brands, and be able to bring our communities together (virtually) during this time!
