The Copper Hat is returning to Make It this year with an awesome selection of old-school shaving tools and all-natural shaving products. Brad and Kate’s path from web-based artisans with handmade business cards to bona-fide shop-keepers is a fascinating story, with some unexpected lessons learned along the way. Kate shared their story with us.

What are you bringing to Make It this year?

Our own handmade shaving brushes, as well as a line of shaving brushes we’ve designed that are all made in Victoria, BC.  We’re also bringing our handmade safety razors, brush and razor stands, all-natural shaving soap, aftershave, and our collection of all-natural products for leg shaving.

Tracey Tomtene

Wednesday, November 6th, 2013

Photographer Tracey Tomtene is a Make It favourite! She hand-transfers much of her travel imagery onto sustainable wood blocks and into jewelry settings which can be found at local art markets and boutiques in Vancouver and online. When she isn’t photographing or makin’ stuff, she is torturing herself in a Bikram yoga studio, getting her toes salty along one of Vancouver’s magnificent coastlines or visiting far off lands (where she feels most at home). We’re thrilled to have her back, and look forward to seeing what she’s bringing us this year!
