August was born out of a love of simple, functional, well-designed objects, and a passion for artisan quality goods. Our focus is on simple construction, thoughtful design, responsible sourcing and exquisite textures. We believe in the beauty of bringing this into our day-to-day routines.
Our brand is rooted in a dislike for waste, and a belief in mindful consumption; we only create items that can stand the test of time, so you can buy fewer of them. We believe in choosing the right sorts of excess: excessive quality, durability, practicality and craftsmanship.
All our fibers are farmed, woven and sewn in Europe. We would love for you to learn more about our production and materials here.
Created by husband and wife Tara and Ian Spencer, our little studio is based by the sea in beautiful Vancouver, Canada.
