Michelle is the Alberta Nooks Design Team Member. Nooks Design began with a visit to some Kelowna, BC thrift stores on a cold December day where there was an abundance of outdated wool sweaters that were going to be discarded due to moth holes; it seemed like a perfect opportunity to take the wool and make it into something new and beautiful.
Owners, Ruthy and LP, daughter Anouk was turning one and about to take her first steps, and we were in need of some footwear to keep her warm but also to help her gain the confidence she needed to put one foot in front of the other and begin exploring on her own. The combination of the soft and breathable wool from the upcycled sweater and a leather sole made from an upcycled leather purse provided the slip-resistant and stylish solution we were looking for. And so was born the name Nooks (“Anouk’s booties”) and the demand grew organically from other parents who saw our booties as just what they wanted their little ones to wear too.
One year after the launch of the business, a line of children’s clothing was designed and brought into production, starting with custom dresses and skirts.
Today, vintage fabrics as well as upcycled wool and leather are being made into a variety of dresses, skirts, rompers, sun suits, bonnets, bloomer shorts and accessories. Our small team works to develop new and fresh patterns every season, always with the inspiration of using timeless designs.

They will be featured here at Prairie Couture from 4-8pm on Thursday, December 7th!
