Happy Canada Day!

canada day 2008 :: storage bags by bookhou and jenna rose :: log bowls :: pinched ceramik bowlsThe weather is bright, warm and sunny in Montreal. This is the perfect day for an holiday.

Like PoppyTalk, I wish to celebrate Canadian talents. Here are a few Canadian artists and designer products that are worth mentioning. Canada Day is the day to remember our roots so it does not matter that I introduced some in the past.

Housewares made by Canadians

The Trees storage box and the die cut felt trivets by bookhou are prettily modern.

Jenna Rose is another Canadian designer who makes wonderful housewares and fashion textile products. I have a thing for round textile storage box. There is an old-fashioned charm to her Rooftops Storage Box.

Available in 5 sizes which nest inside each other, the Pinched Bowls by Coe and Waito are hand pinched. Therefore, each bowl is truly unique. You can find their products at several retailers in the Toronto area, across the United States and three international stores. You can also contact Coe & Waito directly for purchasing.

The Log Bowls were designed for an exhibit organized in New York to celebrate Canadian culture through the myth of the cabin. The Log Bowls were created by Doha Chebib of the creative collective Loyal Loot.
