Glorious Domestic Products Print
A Roundup of World-class Canadian Products from our Spring 2018 issue
We believe in supporting Canadian products, not for the sake of it, but because our nation boasts some of the most top-notch brands and designers in the world. Here, our regular roundup of Glorious Domestic Products.
The distillers at Dillon’s like to call their rye whisky “liquid truth.” That’s because their Canadian rye has no artificial flavours or colourings, and it’s made with 100 percent rye grains from Ontario farms. Aged in three distinct oak casks, the distillery uses traditional pot stills - as used in Scotland - to distill small-batches of their whisky for a delicious take on a Canadian staple. $40
Simplicity says everything at Wolf Circus. The Vancouver-based jewellery company focuses on crafting discreet items of luxury that deliver sensible style without breaking the bank, like this flat top ring etched with a modest line drawing and plated with 14 karat gold. The operation is fairly small - a team of three trained jewellers use the lost wax technique to create molds that are then used to cast the metals into rings, bracelets and pendants. $140
Think of LeDaveed as the fairtrade coffee of the leather goods world. In 2017, the company was recognized with B Corp certification – an independent global assessment of social impact – for its commitment to reducing its social and environmental footprints. In addition to social sustainability, the company is also committed to making your life easier, like with this water-resistant, FDA-approved travel duffle bag that will definitely make your journey from check-in to boarding a breeze. $755
Shoes are so complex right now. There are buckles, straps, laces, perforated vents, collars, and a plethora of other options. Victoria-based Viberg’s slippers are the antidote to those complicated foot traps. The shoe embodies restraint with a single whole-cut pattern of calf suede stitched into a Goodyear-welted leather sole for a beautifully simple piece of footwear, showcasing that less is so much more. $630
This solid wood floor mirror from Kroft is designed to give your home the mid-century Brooklyn-meets-Shoreditch vibe you’ve always aspired towards. Available in a variety of finishes, the mirror is a natural conversation starter for any guests you’re looking to entertain. And with Kroft’s anti-tip wall attachments at the top and anti-slipping rubber bumpers at the bottom, you will never have to worry about seven years of bad luck. $765
