Forget Sunday Funday, it’s Maker Monday! On Monday’s we feature a different maker & brand in a dedicated blog post & on our social media. We carry so many incredible brands in the store & want to make sure the world knows about them! This week we’d like to introduce you to North Pacific Co! They are a local Squamish and Surrey, BC-based business run by a trio of 3 young women that is focused on providing clear, simple & grounded accessories, apparel and decor. Each piece is created to embody a bit of Home, so each piece is themed on a region along the Sea to Sky or around beautiful British Columbia. North Pacific Co’s products are hand designed and handmade with love from natural materials to match places of inspiration.
THE BC COLLECTION
The Local Space currently carries their BC Collection of Mala Bracelets. Inspired by where we call home, there is a bracelet for everyone. Wether you’re a downtown gal or hitting the slopes in Whistler, these bracelets truly embody where we live. Our top seller is the Whistler Peaks bracelet. It is made with Howlite Gemstones which are actually transparent crystals the have an appearance to white marble with grey/black or brown veins running through it. Howlite is a borate natural mineral occurring right here in Canada & parts of the USA. The Whistler Peaks bracelet is named perfectly, it is so beautiful & reminds me of snow capped peaks whenever I wear it. The ladies from North Pacific Co believe that home is a feeling that should be embodies & manifested in yourself & those around you.
When you wear and using North Pacific Co items, you can know that your support of our small shop also supports reforestation efforts in beautiful British Columbia. Each purchase of a North Pacific Co item goes towards planting 1 tree as part of reforestation efforts in British Columbia to combat forest fires and floods, creating jobs, building communities and protecting habitat for biodiversity.
