The BOHO HUT is proud to be a Supporter of Great Canadian Talent. Please take a moment to read their Amazing Bio's!
Owner and creator of recycled clothing company “EllemairCo”. I have a burning passion in my heart to create. My mother raised me on arts and crafts and banana splits, (at least that’s what I remember). I have studied fine arts, fashion and entrepreneurship for many years. I have always made my own clothing, even as a young girl. I have slowly created my art in a way that people are so passionate and excited about, and cultivated a career i am involve with. Brilliant colours, and intricate patterns make my soul happy, clothing is much more than just dressing yourself. It is a outlet for creativity and feeling good about yourself and how you look. I base my designs on timeless bohemian styles that are easy to dress up or down. I have been working full time as a designer for 4 years and now being only 22 I am extremely proud of how far my beautiful company has bloomed. I hope to flourish and expand EllemairCo throughout Canada doing markets and fashion shows.

Jool is a collection of fashion accessories carefully reclaimed and redesigned into modern eco-friendly pieces. All items are made from locally sourced upcycled materials and handmade by Julie in her Toronto studio. These one-of-a-kind items are made to inspire people to make eco-conscious choices while being unique and eco-chic at the same time.
In 2016, we realized that the Canadian swimsuit market was missing something great-the market itself was lacking both versatile and high quality artistic swimsuits! This is how the Visual Mood brand was conceived.
Fast forward 16 months of researching and designing, we launched Visual Mood Swimwear. Our fabrics are carefully selected from high-quality polyester fabrics. The supportive cut of swimsuits creates an ultra-feminine look. The designs are original printing pattern created by our Visual Mood founders.
We put a lot of love and passion into making every garment unique and great, aiming to offer an array of "art chic" swim and resort wear!
🌸KNOTS & PIPES
Heather Sheppard started Knots & Pipes in 2015 when she was having a hard time finding statement pieces with clean lines and made from raw materials; let alone pieces made in Canada at an afforable price point.
She used the skills she gained from her mother and grandmother in the rural community of Norfolk, ON (leather craft, sewing, crocheting) and combined them with the shop local, repurpose and maintain mantra ingrained in her by her parents, who owned a small independent furniture store that focused on Canadian made products in Simcoe, ON.
Heather is an advocate for slow fashion, ethical consumerism and the maintenance of fashion accessories. She sources her materials from hardware stores, local sewing shops, thrift stores, estate sales, consignment shops and antique barns - and her studio adheres to a small batch production mantra located downtown Hamilton, Ontario.

Catie Raymond is a true original. An expert at breaking conventions, the Coldwater based artist brings new life to vintage pieces that she collects at antique shows across North America. Combining semi precious stones, fire-polished crystal, and high quality hypoallergenic sterling silver with eclectic vintage finds like watch parts and one of a kind charms, Catie breaths new life into esoteric trinkets that might otherwise be forgotten. Like the dragonfly that is her signature, Catie changes direction on a whim, uses a variety of colour, and has incredible vision.
While Catie is the quintessential private artist, her work has nevertheless developed a large and loyal following, and can now be found at The Boho Hut
