Have you seen Schitt’s Creek? I can’t believe it has taken me this long to watch it but I am loving everything about this show, including the incredible costuming and accessories. If you can appreciate Moira’s statement necklaces and broaches, Johnny’s pocket squares and Alexis’ headbands, you may like this post.
This month’s roundup of BIPOC businesses feature incredible accessories that are definitely worthy of the big screen, and dare I say it, the Rose family. I hope you like them!
I’m pretty sure Moira would appreciate the artistic quality behind every one of Warren Steven Scott’s creations. Made with sterling silver and acrylic in Canada, these earrings are sleek renditions of ovoids, feathers, chandeliers – I love every one. Particularly the mirrored versions since they remind me of Moira. I also LOVE the belt bag collection
Warren Steven Scott is a member of the Nlaka’pamux Nation, a territory which is located in the interior of what is now British Columbia.
I’ve had my eye on an ethically made Omi Woods coin necklace since I discovered them, and have recently just fallen in love with their Cowrie necklace. Every Omi Woods piece is handcrafted, they use fair-trade African gold and conflict-free metals. What I especially love is the thoughtfulness behind each piece – for example, that the Cowrie shell was used as a form of currency in West Africa and is a symbol of abundance and prosperity.
only recently discovered this Canadian brand, and I was smitten as soon as I discovered the origins of the name. Emma started her business by making a pair of earrings for each of her three sisters, but also explains on her website that “Three Sisters” is known by Indigenous people as an early food group stewarded by Indigenous peoples. The more I learn about Indigenous culture and life, the more I see that it is rooted in community. Emma’s stunning and intricate earrings are a beautiful celebration of Indigenous art and life.
As you know, I’m not one to promote consumption, but as humans, when we do have to clothe ourselves, or when we want to gift someone a memorable lasting piece – why not turn to these independent businesses whose heart and soul goes into every item, and who honour the planet and its people by offering fair and living wages and treating the planet with love and respect?
As always thank you so much for reading,
