Thanks for visiting our shop!

Sewbeau is a two-person, sister team, based in Toronto, ON, Canada.

We make, DESIGN, sew, CRAFT and create together (and separately!) mostly one-of-a-kind, or few-of-a-kind pieces. We love vintage fabrics, clothing and furniture, as well as modern designs and aesthetics. Growing up with a house full of antiques, we appreciate what all the eras have to offer, while still embracing (or fantasizing about!) the future.

We are inspired by found objects, high-fashion, the world around us, the world in our heads, and especially the use of clothing and accessories in our daily lives. Our pieces are made from quality wool from local stores and vendors around us, or from re-cycled and re-purposed materials, giving them a new life. This allows us to help the…

Our pieces are made from quality wool from local stores and vendors around us, or from re-cycled and re-purposed materials, giving them a new life. This allows us to help the planet and follow our values, while doing fun stuff that we love to do and giving others unique pieces.

Allow us to introduce ourselves:

D-Mite: Obsessed with dresses in particular, but also making stuff in general. All stuff! From lamps to socks. Salutes RETROfuturism, as well as science fiction and the 1980's. Favourite quote: “If you must bump me please use your head.”

Rochellerinalla: Can’t fight the fringe or the need for neetles. Knitting needles, that is. Likes to cut-up and re-assemble! Likes playing wit her hair, and putting things in it… Like fascinators and hair-pieces she makes herself (inspired by the era of ARTdeco). Hates most colours except all the ones that are in the rainbow or on spaceships.

Thanks!
