Paper Doilies Handmade

Paper Doilies Handmade offers handwoven and handcrafted home goods and accessories. I strive to curate fibres and other materials from other female-owned businesses (in Canada, if available), and as much as possible, I use sustainable materials such as recycled silk and cotton, or hand spun yarn from scraps, and/or yarn scrap ends.

Studio CJOY

Studio CJOY was born out of the love of creating handmade cards for my friends and family. Growing up you could always count on me for a handmade card, and I love the idea of capturing a moment in time in a creative, special, & sometimes funny way. Let’s celebrate the big AND little moments in life together.

Lark + Ry

My name is Brit! I am the maker behind L A R K + R Y, a queer-owned small macrame shop in Ottawa, ON. I spend my days working and living among plants, fibre, and animals! L A R K + R Y fuses whimsical and modern and bohemian styles to bring the original craft of macrame into the future. To do this, I like to up-cycle foraged and thrifted materials to re-create things completely brand new!

Astro-knot.co

AstroKnot is a galactic inspired collection of arts. Krystal’s work features botanical inks that are brewed from locally harvested sumac berries + riverbank grapes so their vibrant tones reflect landscapes of our community.

Midnight Papaya

Midnight Papaya is a colourful collection of illustrations inspired by plants, animals, food, and everyday objects, often with a fantastical twist and a pop of cuteness. All artwork is originally hand-drawn with ink and alcohol markers (often around midnight). The greeting cards, art prints, bookmarks, and vinyl stickers are printed in Canada, and all packaging is compostable.
