Practical Design - Tanya Wright

Surrey, British Columbia, Canada


Practical Design is a Canadian owned and operated family business based in Surrey, B.C.

We have been in business since 1998 and employ both contract and piece workers. The company was founded by Nola Fowlds and Tanya Wright, a mother and daughter team. Since September 2014 Tanya has run the business with help from various part-time team members.

We began with a mission, to create functional items with style and feel that we have succeeded in this regard.

All of the items we produce have practical applications, are well packaged, durable and, best of all, they are "Made in Canada".
