Last year I dove into an exciting collaboration project with my sister Ashley Botten. Ashley is an amazingly talented interior designer in Toronto. Her style and love for design is who she is, and she owns it. What started as an idea for one product, quickly grew into an amazing adventure in which we founded a new company Toofifteen.
Toofifteen wants to organize your life in a beautiful way while challenging the norm. We do that by creating our products using Tyvek®. Tyvek® is an amazing material that looks and feels like paper, but its not. I love paper, but this is so much more. It is waterproof, non toxic, tear resistant and is equally strong wet or dry. It resists mould and mildew, it laughs at grease and oils. What else? It is recyclable.
This industrial product makes Ashley's and my head swell with ideas and possibilities. Soft yet strong, Pliable yet stiff, and white yet... ahhh, the white. We love the starkness of the white.
So, This is an introduction to Toofifteen. As I set out online, I feel that I need to introduce myself and my babies. This is one of them and I love it with my heart and soul. toofifteen.com
