Made in Canada Series - Meet Twiss and Weber

We met Twiss & Weber a few years ago at a Toronto "craft" show. They were a bundle of hilarious energy when we needed it the most. They started by selling their lovely wool hats with us and it just spiralled and gained momentum into some fun, unique, and very comfortable clothing. Here is there story ...

Twiss & Weber's collaboration began when they met at Wabi Sabi, and Ottawa knit shop, in 2009 and discovered that not only did they share a common background in fashion but they also shared a goal, a desire to make smart, well-crafted wearable art that is both stylish and straightforward to wear. Evolution, Twiss & Weber's third collection is the result of that meeting of minds.
As with evolution, the species improves itself. Evolution is a distinctive collection of ladies apparel and accessories in which one piece evolves naturally from another using a common vocabulary of texture and colour. A revolutionary idea in the fashion similar to the precess the great biologist, Charles Darwin, describes a ..."form so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.
