The communication with shop owner was wonderful. I picked a topper style and lace myself. However, after seeing the finished product I was pretty disappointed. The lace didn't look high quality for how expensive it was. It just didn't go with a wedding look.

I am very sorry the vintage lace didn't go with your look in the end. I know you were searching very hard for the perfect lace, and pictures are not the easiest things to shop from.

I wanted to thank Patricia and her team for such a beautiful dress, its actually nicer than it looks in the picture, is very well made and exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend this seller who responded quickly to my queries and I was lucky enough that she had my exact size in stock! Thank you so much for making this beautiful dress.

I wanted so badly to fit this dress, alas it was not meant to be. Leaving a review to let everyone know how great Patty and her team are. Great shop to work with and buy from.
Eco Dresses for the Uncompromising Bride
Hello friendly Etsy user,
I hope you are having a nice day today. If you are looking for a wedding dress congratulations on your engagement! (Or not, we don’t judge).
We are Pure Magnolia, and we make dresses. To be more specific, the dresses we make are:
b) Usually for weddings
We make dresses out of sustainable materials such as organic cotton, reconstituted silk, and recycled vintage lace. All of our dresses are handmade by four rather talented ladies in here in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia.
Pure Magnolia began in 2009 as a side project for owner Patty Nayel who was then employed full time as a Technical Designer. Patty was passionate about living a ‘green’ lifestyle and saw that the market did not provide brides with an Eco-friendly alternative when it came to wedding gowns. Since its inception Pure Magnolia has been flourishing. Our team is now made up of 3 lovely people. Patty who designs and makes dress and runs the business, Mandy who is the main sewer, and Rachel who deals with all of our press and PR. We would love to make you a dress so I’m going to stop chattering and let you browse.
Come visit us at www.puremagnolia.ca or in our shop in Vancouver (it’s a lovely city people).
