Maker. Mover. Shaker.
Lover of herbs, thrifting, artsy aesthetics, all things extraordinary and scoffing at social norms. I’ve been crafting since I had the physical dexterity to hold a crayon and defying authority since exiting the womb.
I grew up barefoot. A childhood characterized by dirty feet, big dreams, even bigger questions and simplicity. Twenty years later, not much has changed in my own life; unlike the rapidly changing world around me. As such, I long for a shift in practice - from the products we use to the waste we create. Valuing ethical practices, environmental sustainability and concepts of simplicity, I'm on a mission to provide natural and sustainable options for my fellow barefoot beings of the world.
Originally from the province of Nova Scotia, I now reside in Calgary, Alberta with my partner, Rob and our fur-ever companion, Jade. I hope you join me on this adventure. You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for some like-minded connection, quality products, or just the musings of a sarcastic, barefoot feminist.
Hi! I'm Alicia.
Acknowledging the grounds upon which I walk:
As a settler on stolen land, I acknowledge the traditional and ancestral lands on which I live, work, and travel. Born on the unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People, I am now a visitor in Treaty 7 Territory. Home to the Blackfoot Confederacy, comprised of the Siksika, Kainai, and the Piikani; the Tsuu T'ina Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda Nations of Bearspaw, Chiniki and Wesley. These are also the travelling corridors and ancient gathering places of many other Indigenous peoples - First Nation, status and non-status, Metis and Inuit.
