About the Makers

We are a collective of humans in Victoria who want to make the world a kinder place. We make cloth masks, pads, and accessories in Victoria, B.C.  

We began in March of 2020, making masks to help keep our communities safe. We grew throughout the pandemic, and continue to focus on making and selling products that make our world better.We continue to provide high quality masks at no charge to low-income folks in our community through donations to Red Cedar Cafe and the Little Free Library network.
