kindred holiday


bookhou is a small family run business that believes in slow design. each piece they make is made one at a time, by hand, using materials that are organic or eco-friendly. the screen prints feature our original drawings printed using solvent free ink. bookhou is a multidisciplinary studio/shop since 2002. the brick and mortar shop is located at 798 dundas west in toronto.

I have two triangle print bags from bookhou that I use all the time. The larger one is big enough for a morning at the farmers’ market or a day trip. And the smaller tote is perfect for everyday use – room enough for wallet, sunglasses, a little notebook and pencil, an extra roll up bag for groceries or what-have-you, a paperback book or iPad.

arounna loves linen, a freshly washed floor, a hot cup of chai tea, cake right out of the oven and the sound of her kids laughing. she dislikes biting into cold apples, walking in the rain with wet socks and the smell of strong perfume.
