Thanks to Adria Vasil for featuring Lilikoi in her Now Toronto article. We do LOVE to provide great summer dresses ! Adria makes a good point about the production of bamboo . We can’t speak for anyone else’s fabric in the great bamboo debate, but if you want to know about the production of the fabrics that we use specifically , we are happy to answer any questions. We are very confident in the environmental and ethical standards of the mills that we use.

Thanks to the folks at Westworld Magazine for featuring Nelson’s Baker Street in the summer issue. Lilikoi was thrilled to be included as one of the “Go Spots” in Nelson- especially when we are in such fine company! Nelson is known for its incredibly talented artists and artisans. In an era of so much mass production and over consumption, it’s refreshing to honour a town that cares about uniqueness and shopping locally.
And as for lilikoi …..after 6 years we no longer run our Baker Street storefront- but our new studio is open to shoppers by appointment. Lilikoi prides itself on offering a truly “Made in Canada” and “Made in Nelson” product If you want to visit us, see how it’s done, and do a little shopping, feel free to give us a call or drop us a line.
