Never before have customers valued company transparency more. As consumers we know the business practices behind our purchases are important, and speak for us. Are the pieces made locally? What's the process like? What's the brand story? What's a typical day in the production studio like?
Look for terms such as "manufactured in Canada", "Canadian Made" instead of "designed in Canada". There are lots of fabulous brands that have their products imported, but make sure this is clear when you buy something. You never want to feel misled.We love connecting with designers beyond just the products, and usually there's an incredible story behind the scenes! Bonus: look for studio photos, it adds value to envision where your new treasures are being created!
