Designs, The Stowe, Superfly Lullabies, standing armed, Cassie Dee, Meiku Designs, Little Houses, Mortar & Pestle, Mara Gottler, Bianca Barr, APFYT, Shibang Textiles, Local Grain & Dahlia Drive.

Just a little mention from the Earth Times leading up to
Eco Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2011…
Daub + Design is happy to announce a collaboration with Alison Youl as our accessories designer for Eco Fashion Week. Youl’s necklaces and earring are made primarily from recycled materials or materials destined for a landfill. She aims to use even the smallest pieces of reclaimed leather so that nothing goes to waste. Alison encourages us to look at our unwanted goods in a new light and to recycle, recreate and revive our goods rather than throw them away.
Alison Youl’s work can be found at Portobello West Market
on the last Sunday of every month.
Portobello West is on this Sunday at Creekside Community Centre and Daub + Design will be there will new scarves for fall in new colours and fabrics. We’re excited to introduce a gorgeous linen knit infinity scarf and some luscious silks. All our scarves are individually hand-dyed in our Gastown studio.
Keep an eye on our website for new photos of fall items!
For those of you planning your winter getaways already, we’ll have our Summer 2010 swimwear marked down for you. First 5 people by our booth will receive 50%*
and 20%* off scarves and leggings!
*off regular ticketed prices of 2010 items
Can’t make it to Portobello? A visit to our studio is always welcome. Shoot us an email at email@example.com to make sure we’ll be around and
we’ve love to have you come by!

Daub + Design is usually out and about, all over Vancouver with our goods in tow at various shows and events. This September we’re taking it pretty easy on that front as we are preparing for Eco Fashion Week, October 5-7, 2011. That being said, we will be working on tons of new items for fall. You, as a valued consumer, are welcome to shoot us an email ( firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange a time to come by the studio to check out these goods. We LOVE having guests at the studio – we just like a heads up so we’re not covered in dye or out for lunch!
Stay tuned for more information about ECO Fashion Week!
