Featured in Amazon’s Shop Local: Products of BC
We are so excited to be featured in Amazon’s Shop Local Guide for fall 2020.
Excerpt from the article:
Why I love what I do: As a parent, there is nothing better than enjoying the great outdoors with my kids. Outside, my kids are calmer, absorb their surroundings and continue to grow. It’s amazing. Knowing Jan & Jul is helping families make those memories outdoors together is a beautiful thing for me.

Good for: Avoiding the annual ‘must get out and buy sun hats’ rush
Why It Made the List: It’s amazing how fast little heads grow (although the smaller the better at birth, we always say). These hats by Twinklebelle Designs have the solution because they are designed to grow. Made of breathable 100% cotton, and designed by some very savvy Vancouver moms, these easily-packable hats have an ingenious, fully-adjustable head strap so you can adjust it to the right size. Neck straps with an easy toggle adjustment also help keep the hat on when it’s windy, or when the kids are particularly active.
|March 29th, 2010||As a very young company, we were thrilled when the Vancouver
Sun, the largest daily newspaper in Vancouver, published a full
page article on Twinklebelle.Joanne Lee-Young, a business reporter from the Vancouver Sun,
has been buying Twinklebelle’s products from a Vancouver store.
She adores them and wants to know the people who create them.
The article was born after her interview with Florence Luo,the founder
of Twinklebelle. It tells the story of the women behind Twinklebelle.
The article reads:
VANCOUVER – The ‘Made in China’ tag has become synonymous with massive factories staffed by
thousands of workers, stuff rolling off assembly lines in container-load quantities.
But one home-based Vancouver company is chipping away at this widely held image.
Twinklebelle Design Inc. is a tale of two sisters, a small sewing group and two knitting groups in Nanjing
on China’s coast, and further afield in Binzhou, a city that would be unknown to most Westerners.
Together, they make hand-knitted hats and blankets, as well as painting smocks, aprons, bags and
other accessories for babies, kids and families. All very colourful, sweet and with minimal packaging.
You could put them on a table at a farmer’s market.

|Thursday, Dec 06, 2007In the article titled “Holiday Hangout”, Twinklebelle’s aprons and children’s cooking sets were written as: come in darling nostalgia prints, reminiscent of days when cookie dough was mixed rather than sliced.|
