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 studio boutique at 90 Annabella St.; 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 andĀ from their studio.
