We are travelers that have now chosen a place in the country to settle down and run our design business fabricating from recycling materials ( Tamworth is a small community in between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. We call it the middle of everywhere which suits our personalities. We love to create designs and live close to major cities but closer to the Canadian wilderness where we find our source of inspiration.
