I'm thrilled to announce that Leo + Clive is a maker on BRIKA - a leading platform for contemporary, elevated craft representing a talented community of artisans and designers! Check out my featured maker page here.
When I launched my scarves online, applying to BRIKA was one of the first things I marked on my to-do list. They take in less than ten percent of their applications and only respond if they believe the applicant is the right fit for their community of makers. Weeks - no actually, MONTHS - went by without hearing a word. I assumed they passed on my application :( But then low and behold, I heard from them in early February!
BRIKA was founded four years ago by Kena Paranjape and Jen Lee Koss. These two lovely ladies came together with their complimentary skill sets of creativity and business acumen. They now have two permanent retail locations in Toronto, as well as a series of pop-up shops, and are also launching online through a variety of retailers, including Lord & Taylor in the United States.
BRIKA is all about creating a connection between a creative customer and maker, bringing a beautifully curated assortment of products crafted from artisans, designers and makers. They make a unique experience for their customers to discover high-quality, well-crafted, beautiful gifts. They do this through product and maker stories merchandised by gift occasion, themes, seasons and trends all in the categories of House & Home, Jewelry, Accessories, Little Ones and Gifts.
If you live in Toronto, stop by BRIKA in one of their retail locations on Queen Street or in the PATH, otherwise check them out online. You'll be sure to find beautiful treasures to gift your loved ones or yourself!
