Our love of colour, texture, and pattern and our concern for the environment led us to develop an organic lifestyle collection. Our playful patterns combined with eco-friendly fabrics and our passion for quality make a special product that people are excited about using, and proud about giving.
We strive to use the best materials possible, and to work locally with small, family-run businesses to make our line. Our fabric is certified organic, milled in Canada. Our patterns are all designed by us and exclusive to our line. We use a neighbouring screen-printer to apply our patterns to the fabric and everything is sewn in Toronto.
We work out of a studio in Toronto, where we design and develop our line.
Before Schoolyard began, we studied textiles. Katy Chan is a graduate of the Textile Design program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, and Hilary Dennis received a B.F.A. from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
