Clothing & Textiles
Goldiemilks is a tiny homemade brand that produces one of a kind garments, playthings, and accessories for wee babes and kids. For my line I use recycled, up-cycled, and up-styled textiles to create clothing that is both fashionable and functional. A big part of my process is mixing different textiles to create playful kids wear. All of the production takes place in my tiny East Toronto Basement where I take pride in creating fabulous, eco-conscious, kids things for you!
My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have. I do not limit myself to one style, yearn or fashion trend. Inspiration and ideas change. Knowledge changes. Each piece that I create is a fusion of my past, where I come from and the future, where I am going to in pursuit of new creative ideas.
Meter by Metre was born out of my love for textiles, my need to take a stance against the cruelty involved in wool and leather sourced from farm factories and my passion for the handmade movement where everything is made with love and thought. I use a wide range of cruelty free materials that I work hard to source in order to create handbags that are one of a kind, beautiful and utilitarian.
My name is Sona and I live in a beautiful Beaches neighbourhood, where I create things that I personally love and use/wear. My son Simon has been an endless inspiration to me and together, we make a team. For the first thirty years of my life, I had lived in the heart of Europe and my roots are present in my work. I love colours, quality and simplicity. I do believe that one can make a difference and, therefore, I very diligently choose all materials I use and partners I buy from.
I have been interested in fibre since my mother taught me to knit when I was a little girl. In high school, I began to sew clothing for myself. I love wearing clothing that I have somehow had a hand in making, and have continued to learn new techniques for working with fibre. I am a spinner, knitter, crocheter, sewer, dyer and screen printer. In all of these endeavours, I’m mostly self-taught. Currently, I focus on sewing, dying and screen printing a line of comfortable clothing for women.
