Laura Harris and Shelley Kuipers are lifelong friends who share a passion for thoughtful design, personal style and well-made clothing. Frustrated with a lack of choice, they created their own line.
Laura is a Victoria-based artist and Shelley is a serial entrepreneur, but when it comes to clothes, they both want the same thing; pieces that easily go where they go, are beautifully and ethically-made using natural, sustainable fabrics; clothing that inspires unapologetic-individuality, confidence and elegance.
Fully-circular in their production practices, all fabric waste is utilized. When you’re done with your HK item, send it back and they’ll repurpose it.
The inaugural HK capsule collection, Only Black consists of seven pieces – the items you crave; that you reach for every time. Made for the ever-evolving, non-conforming woman, each piece feels absolutely fantastic on your skin and is designed to inspire freedom and ease.
Sustainability & the circular economy, freedom & the right to choose; unapologetic creativity; the importance of collaboration; exploration & adventure; honesty & authenticity; celebration; challenging the status quo; having a place to call home; wholehearted generosity; redefinition, reinvention & evolution; LOVE.
Design and curate ethically-made, circular, sustainable products that inspire individuality, confidence and elegance. We want to gather a community of people who care about quality and the sustainable fashion movement, and put them at the heart of our business.
Settle into your weekend, grab a glass of vino and get cozy with HK co-founder, Shelley Kuipers. Here she weighs in on fashion, feminism and challenging the status quo.
We’d like to introduce you to the lovely and talented, Rachael Carroll, HK’s latest circular collaborator. Rachael used our fabric ends to create a beautiful series of tie-dye bags in gorgeous shades of sienna and black. The bags will be available for purchase, with all proceeds going to charity, at our November 14th popup event in Calgary. Keep reading for more details on that below.
OK, so at this point our thoughts at 3am are...
“Are the tags sewn in the right way?” “Is that photo shoot confirmed?” “Did we nail that Instagram post?” “What if LITERALLY no one likes our clothes??!!”
