FAQ

Where can I find you in-person?

At our home studio near Bloor/Dufferin, at Curated Market Co *Beaches location*, or at one of our upcoming markets.

 

I have an old/damaged leather coat. Can I donate this to you?

Yes! Donations can be dropped off at our home studio near Bloor/Dufferin. Please contact us.

 

Can I add an extra pocket or change the zipper direction?

An extra zippered pocket may be added to the back of a fanny pack for $20. Leave a note at checkout (i.e. extra back pocket please!) and we'll send an invoice for the additional cost.

To request a change in zipper direction, leave a note at checkout (i.e. "left hand zipper please!"). No additional cost is required.

Please note, these requests must be made to order and can only be done for materials we have on hand. We will contact you by email if there are any issues.

 

I have a sentimental garment. Can this be custom-made into a fanny pack?

We accept custom work on a case-by-case basis. The overall pattern must remain the same. See below for our base pricing, with additional costs for cleaning, dismantling, or patchwork (+ $50/hr) if needed.

Fabric - S $60 / M $80 / L $90
Leather - S $155 / M $190 / L $220

Where do you source your materials?

In Toronto! We've made awesome connections with local designers, cutters, upholstery shops, drapery stores, zero waste communities, and a nearby textile recycling facility. We also source materials in like-new condition from thrift shops, local trades and community donations.

 

What do you do with your waste after production?

Our smaller scraps get pieced together to make one-of-a-kind patchwork fanny packs or totes, into Mini Wallets and Cardholders. When donated materials aren't the best fit for us, we pass them along to other makers and within our local Buy Nothing group. All the remaining teeny unusable bits are brought to Viking to be properly recycled.
