You may have heard of the cottage industry, well we operate in the tiny shack behind that. Our company is composed of a husband and wife duo living and dreaming in Ottawa, Canada. We're passionate about many things; design, music, fashion, film, pretty much every form of art that has been touched with the indie spirit.
We are practitioners of the Slow Goods movement, where objects take time to craft and are made of quality materials. We have chosen our materials and manufacturing processes with careful consideration as we attempt to bring future heirlooms to your household.
As a company, we are proudly governed by the following:
We hold these values close to our hearts, and they play an important role in every facet of our company. We want to help our local economy by using local suppliers where we can monitor quality and ensure workers are given a fair wage and safe working conditions.
To the best of our ability, we strive to use on-shore manufacturers and suppliers. For products that we don't make ourselves, we searched and sought out small companies that have a steep tradition in quality and craftsmanship. We are in close contact with our suppliers and they are our partners in bringing our designs to life.
In every object that we create we strive to capture your imagination for only a few precious moments out of your day. We're just trying to trigger a slight eyebrow raise, a head tilt or a held breath.
It’s simple, we are two individuals who value quality and substance. No more, no less.
We hope you join us for the rest of the story.
Dom: When I was growing up, I loved math class. Algebra, Calculus, Finite, Statistics, Physics—all of it. The "N" represents the mathematical Nth degree. We wanted a very generic sounding name (phonetically it reads as "end-product") but our creative activity wouldn't be easily categorized or defined. If you look at our body of work, you'll notice that things have played out well in that regard.
