Our creations are sewn and silk-screened in-house by a handful of talented women who believe in making quality goods that they love to wear, and hope that you will too. We believe we can do this in our home town, as opposed to contracting out overseas, and still make it affordable for our customers.
Smoking Lily has 3 locations, 2 in Victoria and 1 in Vancouver (aka Milkman's Daughter). The store on lower Johnson street is the first and opened in 1996.
After much popular demand, Migration Boutique now has a permanent location in the Bay Centre mall downtown Victoria. They feature their own Migration line and 40+ local and ethical brands as well. We are happy to have their clothing on the runway.
Everything from buying the silk line for my "Thai silk line" from the home of a Thai family to finding my lovely tailor and friend "Ead" have enabled me to support small businesses and ethical production. This important step in thinking helps to ensure two things; One the policies of Fair trade are met, and two that the items brought to the market are one of a kind and are of a more personal nature.
Hemp and Company is your perfect one-stop-shop for eco-friendly essentials such as clothing, body care and accessories. Out of all 50+ brands they carry in the stores, about 60% are Canadian made and of course the Hemp and Company Originals and Essentials are entirely designed and manufactured in Canada! This is the line that will be featured in the fashion show; both male and female outfits.
We use a variety of imported natural fibres such as hemp, organic cotton and bamboo. Our signature fabric is a hemp and organic cotton blend, custom dyed in Winnipeg using low impact dyes and a 100% uptake process. We offer unique colors each season in shades such as lichen, terracotta and mulberry- colors inspired by the natural world and perfectly at home on our beautiful West Coast.
