Who are We
My name is Cynthia, and Caribou Home is my “Happiness Project”. I strongly believe in the philosophy “it takes a village”. Caribou Home isn’t just me though. My family, friends, colleagues and makers have all helped me along the way. I have years of corporate marketing and communication experience at some of Canada’s most beloved brands. I have built a business from scratch with my own product that is now sold in 58 countries. I feel that our team has a unique skill set to help small businesses grow, but most importantly help our Canadian entrepreneurs and makers survive and flourish despite these very challenging times.
Four years ago I was travelling with my family in Nova Scotia and came across these amazing upcycled lobster rope mats. The quality and design were outstanding. The local artisan sold them locally and went to a few local shows a year. I found her company on Facebook and immediately purchased 2 which I totally love. I thought products and makers like this need an online space that we can grow and develop these products and brands. We should all be so proud of these amazing products being designed in Canada and Made in Canada. The seed of the idea for Caribou was planted. Timing is everything though, and our lives just couldn’t make it work until now.
My hope is that Caribou Home becomes your “go to” for shopping Canada, but also a larger community that we can all be proud of being a part of. Thank you for your support.
