A BRIKA maker story

Bryan & Stefani

BURLINGTON, ON
"Don’t spend life wondering “what if”...do it!"
“It seems that each one of our products start a little differently; a style, fabric or hardware could lead the inspiration for the piece. ”

“Nothing is more satisfying than making something with your own two hands.”


“Together we collaborate and design each piece, working together towards our shared vision. ”


“Nothing is more satisfying than making something with your own two hands.”


Bryan and Stefani were in their twenties when they discovered they had a shared interest for creating. They found inspiration in taking their ideas, refining them and making something unique and inspired. Stumbling upon a community of makers, people who, just like them, wanted to express themselves through their unique creations inspired them to do the same. In 2013, The Shoppery was born out of desire to create and share with the world.


Bryan and Stefani have an affinity for rustic mediums and working with the imperfections that are found in natural textiles. They each have their own, distinct style but collaborate on each piece to bring it to their shared vision. Canvas, leather and wood are the most common textiles/mediums found in their line. They create out of their Burlington, Ontario under the watchful eye of their fur babes, Duke and Moo.

Why is making handmade goods important to you?
There is something so satisfying taking a piece of leather, wood, fabric, etc and letting your imagination guide you to a finished piece. When sourcing our products we try to purchase as close to home as possible or support another small business.    When someone purchases one of our pieces, it means that they appreciate and support our little business and the feeling is unlike anything.


What is your design background?  
Bryan went to school for photography and Stefani went to school for hair design.  We also are lucky that our parents are all talented artists in their own right.

Who or what inspires you to do the work that you do? Why?

Stefani is more eclectic and Bryan is more contemporary.  We are inspired by items of the past and present and love incorporating both of those elements into our designs.


“Other makers passion and creativity is a constant source of inspiration and energy. ”
