Our Story

What the Elves do...

You spend a lot of time at work over a lifetime so you may as well have fun at your job. 

We are a gaggle of elves who have a good time at work. We like to make people happy and this is how we have been doing it for over 30 years. 
When we get to work we put on the kettle. Once fuelled with a hot beverage we get down to the task of designing high quality cotton tea towels that are quirky and fun. But wait, we make other things too;  tote bags, coasters, magnets and a line of mini cards are some of our other current product lines. Just like Santa’s elves, we are very dextrous.
All of our printing, packaging and shipping are done in BC. When cranking through the repetitive tasks we like to listen to CBC radio, inspiring music, or a podcast. We are 7 elves now and here is a little introduction to our crew.

Where the Elves do it...

Part of the reason we like our jobs is that we work out of a fantastic location where we have been for the last 20 years. Situated on the Gov’t Wharf in Gibsons, BC.,  we have a stunning view from our gallery/studio. We are surrounded by water, seagulls and boats so there is always action outside our doors. The space is split in two, half being the studio and half being a gallery, where there are often people coming in to buy things. Our gallery is packed with over 60 tea towel designs in both French and English,  as well as original paintings and the rest of our product lines. 

We really hope that if you are anywhere near Gibsons you will come and visit  us.

Ok, so let’s be honest, there are days when we are not thrilled to be at work. On those occasions we are saved by the sign on our door that  reads “Open When We Are Open”. That way we can take off, regenerate, go for a bike ride and come back with a spring in our step. If you happen to come see us when our doors are closed, there is always a sign to say when we will be back.

That is the end of the true story about us.

We hope our work makes you happy.
