"I’m going to make everything around me beautiful - that will be my life." -Elsie de Wolfe

Everything in this collection is handmade in Toronto by textile artist, Heather Shaw who started p i ’ l o over twenty years ago while at art school.  It began from an absolute love and need to make functional items for the home with a simple and natural aesthetic and has been a labour of love ever since.

Each piece is made carefully and responsibly made by Heather. The work takes place out of a coach house studio behind an old Victorian house in the Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood. Heather's inspiration comes from this very calming space that houses ample natural light, fabrics and vintage supplies. She hopes that each piece will bring happiness and be passed down to future generations.
