30 years ago Derek and Tracey moved into a small house outside Barrie. They were looking for a spot to raise their family and for a lifestyle that allowed them to make beautifully designed products in a multitude of materials. Always keeping in mind what would be good for the family and community, they followed environmentally sound practices in their work and organic vegetable garden. Tracey’s concern about the waste of fresh water was behind the decision to implement a vegetarian diet and to use Organic cotton, which uses far less water, in her line of clothing. But the main benefit of organic materials is that the crops aren't treated with pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms. These toxins are harmful for farmers, workers, consumers of clothing, and entire wildlife eco-systems.
