Just in time for Christmas, we’ve come up with the cutest slippers ever! Made of thick wool and lined with fleece, these little booties are unique in that they are made of one peice of fabric! This makes for a very cool design with minimal seams and a fancy side detail. Each pair is hand appliqueed and printed on the inside. So far there are just the three designs but there are more colours of wool coming. At the moment they fit everyone in the studio size 7 1/2 to 9. Not to worry though, we have a smaller pattern in the works!

We are always happy to see amazing women wearing Smoking Lily! This week, the inspiring and beautiful environmentalist Severn Cullis-Suzuki, is featured in the Vancouver Sun wearing one of our bobbin print Demi Jackets. Read the article that accompanied her photograph here.
*Ideal for West Coast weather, the Demi Jacket is available on our website.
It's been an exciting week for Smoking Lily! Not only is it Small Business Week here in Victoria (Yeah!) we're on the cover of our local Monday Magazine. Accompanied by a wonderful interview with Trish Tacoma, the Lily Ladies leader, we are so happy to be on newsstands all week long! Read the article here.

Not only super flattering, but also super comfy and made of bamboo! This dress is the ultimate and Trish agrees. The red lace is Trish's slip and sticking out and being pretty... just an example of the different ways this dress can be worn. Bamboo is the ultimate fabric. It's supoer soft, machine washable, naturally anti-bacterial and also has wicking properties, keeping you un-smelly and cool. Bamboo is also a great alternative to oother fabrics because it is ecologically friendly, requiring no pesticides and little irrigation. The girls in the studio all love working with this fabric and wonderful new designs will soon be ready for you!
