If you grew up in Canada, you grew up going to Canadian Tire. To those that aren’t from Canada, let me say this: if I were to create a slogan for Canadian Tire, it would be ‘this place isn’t really about tires’. Yes, they sell tires, but it was a place we’d go often for all sorts of things you need for the house, for the garden, for camping, for all sorts of things in life. And the best part was that at the end of every transaction, you’d get Canadian Tire money — it’s kinda like monopoly money, that you gets to spend at the store. As a kid, it was such a treat when your mum would let you keep it for future purchases.
And over the past few years, they’ve introduced a new and design-savvy sub-brand, called Canvas. And recently, I had the great pleasure of developing my own holiday collection for them! Most of my collaborations happen in the US and abroad, so it was a really special experience designing something so close to home. And I’m thrilled with how it turned out. The collection includes gift wrap, as well as beautifully embroidered pillows, stockings and a tree skirt, and is now available in stores across Canada. If you live in Canada, check the links below to view them online and hopefully they’ll have them at store near you!
