Meet the man behind the hide—our boy Nick Van Eck aka Enve.
He continues his family’s hide work legacy from his home studio in Brantford, Ontario. Using skills he learned from his dad, Enve now designs, cuts and sews by hand a wide range of leather goods using only the highest quality hides and nylon stitching.
One of our friendliest neighbours here in the Forest City— you must get to know our good pal Rokhsana and her team at Purdy Natural.
Purdy Natural handcrafts and sells natural products, made with love. Rokhsana’s own line of natural skincare and makeup produced in London, Ontario offers many options which are suitable for a wide variety of skin types and personal preferences. Her handmade products include bar soaps, deodorants, salvation, muscle rub, face and body moisturizers, lip balm, salt scrub, mascara, eyeshadow, foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, primer, eyebrow cream, and more. With all these amazing products made naturally—and with love—right here in the Forest City, there’s no need to cover your body with harsh, toxic drugstore brands!
When it comes to natural handmade soap, Danielle and Albert are killing it!
Their unique recipes are made by hand in small batches and use only the highest quality ingredients, including brewed teas and craft beer. They're well-known for their craft beer soaps which have allowed them to collaborate with 27 different breweries. Collaboration with small and local businesses, such as Illbury + Goose, is a key element in Hummingbird's business model.
