NORQUAY Co. was launched in 2013 by Natasha Wittke; artist, adventurist and avid canoeist obsessed with the great outdoors and equally for great design.
Where does the name Norquay come from?
“Our brand Norquay Co. was named after a tiny island, nested in the cool waters of Lake Huron, where my first solo camping trip took place. Following that experience, at the age of 14, I set out on a month-long, 600km canoe trip through the northern-most point of Ontario along the Missinaibi River up to Moosenee, where I spent so much time with a paddle in my hand I suppose it was inevitable I would make it my canvas one day.” - Natasha Wittke
Norquay Co. Artisan Painted Canoe Paddles are made from solid cherry wood sourced from the deep forests of Northern Ontario. Each paddle is selected for its unique attributes and hand finished in their local west-end studio. It is their Northern heritage and canoeist lifestyle that has influenced the designs behind each of their paddle series.
