We believe an object can elevate both beholder and maker. In a world of mass-produced goods, we offer artisan-made home and apparel crafted in fair-trade environments from around the globe. We strive to live fully, slow down to enjoy life’s little luxuries, and choose everyday to create a world connecting maker, owner and earth.

You’ve been away all day or for a couple of days and you’re just about to turn the knob to enter your home. You step inside, and with a sigh of relief you kick off your shoes - you know you’ve made it.
You’re home. You’re safe at home.
A place you’ve curated with paintings, pillows and goods that suit your lifestyle and unique personal style. Plants that are like your children, souvenirs or conversation pieces on shelves with stories and memories to remind you of the life you’ve created. Whether or not it needs a dusting - it’s all yours.
Our little luxuries are designed to highlight the luxury of the homes and spaces we live in. Poko pieces are designed to last with your evolving life, and help you feel safe at home.
Now, imagine your space wasn't safe.
Or that it was taken away from you.
Home would have a very different meaning, wouldn’t it?
It’s for this reason that we have partnered with Cornerstone Housing for Women as we turn up the love on our summertime home and cottage renewal over the next two weeks. Because everyone should be able to feel safe at home.
How Cornerstone Helps Keep Women Safe At Home
We operate the only emergency shelter in Ottawa, that is dedicated exclusively to homeless women. It has 61 beds, plus additional costs and they are always full.
-Patricia Hassard, Board Chair, Cornerstone Housing
We were able to donate $540 to Cornerstone Women's Housing. We believe everyone should feel safe at home, especially during these uncertain times.
