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.
If you don’t already know about Adria Vasil, you want to. Adria writes a very popular column in NOW Toronto called Ecoholic, and is the author of several books. Her first , “Ecoholic – “When You’re Addicted to the Planet” is considered the definitive guide to eco-friendly choices, with a Canadian and US edition available.
Adria’s new book is called “Ecoholic Body” – and it focuses on fashion, beauty products, supplements, cosmetics; all of the things we use to look beautiful.
Lilikoi has had a long relationship with Adria – we were honored when she wore our Kimono Top on CBC’s the Gil Deacon Show a few years back.! She has now featured Lilikoi in “Ecoholic Body” and we couldn’t be happier.
Our Lilikoi retail store is featured in the Glossary of places to shop in Canada . Adria also honored Lilikoi by featuring our brand as one of her Top 15 Canadian Fashion Brands.
If you are interested in the health of the planet, and in other fabulous, sustainable brands for clothing, cosmetics and more, you want a copy of this book.
