A graduate of Tema Vocational School of Ghana, West Africa; Florence worked in the Tema Textile Garment industry for years before coming to Canada.  With her extensive experience in garment making she extended her reach into children’s wear in Montreal before moving to Ottawa.  A knitting machine course taken in 1983 added a new medium element that inspired a passion for knitwear; leading her to create unique knitwear and one of a kind quality garments to compliment her textile background.  

Africa’s vibrant fabrics (Batiks, Kente cloth) are of a great inspiration for  Florence who takes the opportunity to travel to Ghana regularly in search of fabrics.  She is always on the lookout for the unique in the effort to keep her designs and collections current.


Florence aims to cross cultural boundaries with her designs; effortlessly blending functionality with flare.    Our focus is on designing comfortable and wearable garments in a full range of sizes and colours.  


Florence’s work is honest - straight from the heart through the hand.  It’s also organic and timeless (some of the designs that were created 15-20 years ago are still very popular today), appealing to many different generations. Florence is determined to keep her designs fresh for her loyal customers; while introducing new clients to her wonderful brand.
