High school sweethearts turn seamster & seamstress. Graham and Kristie create each piece of clothing and every one-of-a-kind basket in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They take turns hanging out with their three kids in their 100+ year old house and going to their brick-and-mortar shop at 875 Corydon Ave.; Velvet Plume headquarters.
Velvet Plume was started by Kristie in 2001 and joined by Graham in 2006, one week after the birth of their first son; becoming their full-time family business.
Every summer finds Velvet Plume on the road; vending at Summer music & art festivals in Western Canada. The rest of the year, you can find them selling baskets and clothing at local shows in Winnipeg and in their Corydon shop from Wednesday to Saturday 11 to 5.
