Holy Duck Chili

Holy Duck Chili

Holy Duck Chili is a product of familial wisdom and love. Founders Chris and Louise relocated from Hong Kong to Vancouver in February 2020. Struggling to find locally and sustainably made Asian condiments and sauces, their search led them to neighbourhood general stores. Inspired by the abundance of small-batch crafted sauces using international recipes, they still saw much room for premium-quality Asian sauces made with local ingredients, with sustainability in mind. They debuted their first chili oil product in the summer of 2021. Their flagship product is based on Louise's grandmother's recipe with the unique addition of duck fat.

I'll Know It When I See It

I'll Know It When I See It

Based in Vancouver, BC, I’ll Know It When I See It is a two-woman business, creating sometimes nostalgic, often funny and occasionally Asian-inspired stationery. Cassie and Christine aren't sisters but have been friends for 18 years, meeting in design school. Their work has always been from the heart, creating what feels most authentic to them in the moment. It's been joyful to reawaken to their Chinese heritage of late, allowing for more of their identity + experiences to come through their designs. The founders both have long standing ties to Vancouver's Chinatown - Christine's great grandparents called Chinatown their home when they immigrated to Canada in 1913 and Cassie's grandmother still lives in Chinatown to this day.

 

ILHA

ILHA

The name "Ilha" comes from founder Michelle Hsu's parents’ native country of Taiwan. When Portuguese sailors came upon the island in the 1500s, they named it “Ilha Formosa” which means “beautiful island”. Michelle wanted to pay homage to her heritage while connecting it to where she lives now, New York City, another beautiful island. The candles are handcrafted and hand-poured in small batches with cotton wicks, natural soy wax and toxin free fragrances.

Karen Schipper

Karen Schipper

Karen Schipper is an illustrator and greeting card designer. She creates art that aims to inspire optimism and encourage relationships. Growing up in Hong Kong — the tropical land of pastel skyscrapers, Karen was raised in a home of boisterous personalities with a good dosage of Cantonese-dubbed Japanese cartoons and a satisfied belly of scrumptious food. She made her own handmade cards since she was a child and cannot seem to shake off her love of stationery.

With a BFA in graphic design and a decade of design experience, Karen’s illustrations are rooted in design thinking with a side of whimsy. Her work weaves together her childhood years, her background in design, and her joy in the every day. She currently resides in Greenville, South Carolina with her husband, son, and dog. When she’s not in her studio, you’ll find Karen trying new recipes, rummaging thrift stores, or taking long walks with her family.
