Welcome to Silk & Scarlet! We are so happy that you found us!
Hi!! My name is Heather! I’m the owner, maker and creator behind Silk & Scarlet! I’m a wife and a mama to three amazing toddler boys who are now 3,2 and 4 months! I started this little business in January of 2018 and have been so proud and grateful for how it has flourished! It started as a simple hobby for me to do when the boys were sleeping, and has turned into what I do in every spare moment I have, and I am so thankful for that!
We are a small, handmade shop based in the Durham and Kawartha Lakes of Ontario, Canada! We are proudly Canadian and love shopping small! Everything you will find on our site is 100% handcrafted and made in Canada! Most (with the exception of two or three) of our fabrics are sourced from small Canadian custom fabric shops.
People are always asking why I say ‘we’ when it is just me, but there is a whole village of people behind this business including my husband who supports and assists with business logistics; my kiddos who often ‘help’ to package orders; my parents and siblings who help with pickups, vendor shows and photo-shoots; my seamstresses, Pam and Aimee, who work from home to help us keep up with orders, Sherry who makes our adult structured headbands; and of course, all of you who continue to support this business both as customers and supporters by spreading the word and allowing our shop to grow!
So thank you for visiting our site and please feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or via our social media pages if you have any questions at all!
