About FibreArtStudio

Sales 4,853
On Etsy since 2016

Welcome to Fibre Art Studio's Etsy shop

Hello! Thank you for stopping by.

Fibre Art Studio, home to five fibre artists, is located on Granville Island, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. We opened our studio's current location to the public in November 1979 to create, display and sell our work, as well as to network with our customers and fellow artists/artisans. Everything offered at our studio is handmade by our members.

Our collective work is comprised of tapestry weaving, hand-loom weaving, knitting, felting, spinning and dyeing. We create, both, visual and wearable art, as well as practical textiles for the home, with each item being one-of-a-kind or part of a limited edition.

In addition to our finished work, we offer a wide range of hand-dyed luxury yarns and fibres, as well as handspun yarn. Knitters, weavers, felters, quilters and mixed media artists are among our regular customers.

We opened our Etsy shop in February 2016, and will continue to add new items and information. Please visit our shop regularly to check out what's new.

If you are interested in visiting our studio on Granville Island, our address is
1610 Johnston Street, Vancouver
Open 11am to 4pm everyday
Tel: (604) 688-3047

We keep separate inventory for studio and Etsy shop. We may or may not have the items listed on Etsy at our studio.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom dye order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I collect, use, and share your information:

- as needed to provide my services, such as in order to fulfill your order, settle disputes, or provide customer support;
- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation, or court order, or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases as required by tax law; and
- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- Service providers. I currently run my business with my business partners at Fibre Art Studio, who are listed in the shop info page, and I may share your personal information with them, but only to the extent necessary to fulfill your orders. In the future, I may hire help to fulfill your orders. In that case, your information will be used by the hired help in order to fulfill your orders only under close supervision.
- Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services, as described in my Privacy Policy, and as required to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for 7 years, as required by Canadian tax law.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
- Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information, except when I am required to store data for legal reasons.
- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

How to Contact Me

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Yoriko Oki, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at FibreArtStudioGI [!at] Alternately, you may mail me at:
