It started with a Big Leaf Maple leaf found on the beaches of Tofino by the owner of inspirati, Wendy Brownie. She sketched the leaf and handed that over to the creative team at Wax Partnership where the design evolved into a perfect example of the diversity and inclusiveness of our provinces and territories. A true representation of our country's values and traditions!
The design was then sent to Le Jacquard Francais in France and Wendy was fortunate enough to visit their production facility in Gerardmer in northeastern France to see the tea towels being woven. An experience of a lifetime!
The 100 % long staple cotton tea towels have now arrived in time for Canada's big celebration and will continue to be available at inspirati for $40 each ( they are also being sold at a select few retail outlets of Le Jacquard Francais in Paris! ).
Part of the proceeds from the sale of the tea towels will go to the WE Charity, and their Education Pillar, to help alleviate childhood poverty ( www.WE.org ).
