Canadian Wildlife Federation - Wildlife Wednesday

We are proud to announce this season we will be partnering with the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Every other Wednesday we will be posting an at risk & iconic Canadian species for "Wildlife Wednesday" in our social media avenues. Please feel free to repost and use the hashtag #wildlifewednesday to spread the word of our beautiful animals!

Partial proceeds of each Burrowing owl sweater sold (available in the Fall) will go directly to the Canadian Wildlife Federation.

Kyoko Higa, our new creative contributor!

 

Please welcome Kyoko Higa, lead designer at Celsia Floral.  She will be assisting our brand with her creative talents bringing in a refreshing new perspective on designs and trends.


"I am merely a flower lover before a designer. I enjoy their natural simplicity and duplicity. Their ability to grow through the cracks of our modern industrial world and give us pause, in awe of their simple but complex beauty." 


 
"The seemingly imperfect nature of flowers inspire me to tell stories.
Through the use of flora's colours, textures and shapes I'd like to evoke feelings and impart intimate messages of love and loss...of living. A flower's individual parts: petals, sepals, filaments, anthers and leaves give each stem a unique personality. My job is to highlight their personality. I tend to demolish the rules of traditional floral design while keeping it intact." 



"As a floral designer, I'd like to continue suggesting my perspective of aesthetics of nature and apply it to what is of the moment and also, timeless. Duplicity." Kyoko.

6 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT A GRANTED SWEATER

It is important at Granted for us to know how our products are made and where the materials come from. We don't use clever marketing techniques to mask the truth, we use only simple materials and old fashion knitting methods to make our garment from start to finish.

1) All made in Vancouver, Canada. Established in 1978.

2) The design and fit are timeless. Quite often our garments are passed down from one generation to the next.

3) We use only 100% pure new wool, a sustainable and ethical fibre from free range sheep.

4) Durability of knit and thickness of yarn make for the perfect outerwear sweater.

5) A distinctly Canadian Heritage classic.

6) Each sweater is made by hand and can take up to 25 hours of knitting.

Granted wood zipper pull process

Granted wood zipper pull process.

There are many steps taken with the production of each sweater, not only with the knitting of our garment but the process of our signature wooden zipper pulls.

Each piece is hand crafted on Vancouver Island using only salvaged yew wood branches and then finished with our signature "g" logo. Our pulls are hard wearing, weather resistant and represent the hand made nature of our brand.
