Bookhou at Espace Tricot!

We have long been admirers of the work of John Booth and Arounna Khounnoraj of Bookhou – a multidisciplinary studio based in Toronto that emphasizes natural handmade materials and small production pieces – and are thrilled to now be stocking a selection of their totes, pouches, and storage buckets.  Please note that the smaller photos below are taken from the Bookhou website while the larger images are our own and show the range of fabrics currently in store.  These just went up on the shelves on Saturday and are selling incredibly quickly – please let us know if you see something you’d like us to put aside for you!
