The quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero, “Art is born of the observation and investigation of nature.” rings true for me. The masterpieces found in the natural world are masterworks.
We are a husband-wife team who love to spend time together. With the Canadian Rockies in our backyard, we enjoy spending much of the summer months hiking and biking with our family. We are the parents to three amazing and adventurous young adults. Family is very important to us, and so is the beautiful world around us. We love nature and want to help keep it beautiful. Together we love gardening and eating the delicious homegrown produce.
We love the Earth; it is our home.

We recycle and reuse boxes and packaging materials.
Even though it looks pretty, we try to avoid excessive wrapping that will end up in the landfill.
When cleaners are needed, we use water-based and solvent-free products.
To reduce water consumption we use pressure washers for all wet cleanup.
Whenever possible we use natural fibre materials.
We encourage our customers to wash garments in cold water and hang to dry,
this method is both better for the environment and the longevity of the garments.
