Atelier (ah-tell-ee-ay): a workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist or designer.


In Canada, the average person throws out 81 pounds of textiles annually, while North Americans send 10 million tons of clothing to the landfill every year — most of which could be reused or recycled.

Hi there! My name is Kat, and welcome to my shop!

I am a one-woman business, part-time research assistant, and full-time health sciences student in BC, Canada. I was previously a pharmacy assistant!

My goals with Katelier are:

  • to give new life to previously loved clothing to reduce textile waste

  • to make cute accessories accessible and affordable

Due to the fact that I only use upcycled materials and leftover fabric scraps, many products are limited runs and will never be made again.

I often run fundraiser sales that give all net proceeds to charity. I especially love helping charities involving medical research and the health and well-being of Canadians.

Please follow us on Instagram to keep up with the latest news and promotions!

Thank you for supporting my small business!
