Local Business Story: Daub + Design

A West Coast Lifestyle Brand

Daub Design

A few weeks ago I met with the owners of several small and successful local businesses at their pop-up tents outside an industrially chic brewery on the East Side.  At Container Brewery we celebrated summer with a dee-jay, pizza truck, craft beer and a sprinkling of interesting product – everything from coffee to art.

I never miss a sign from the Universe

Some companies I was already familiar with (like Saltspring Kitchen Co. – ok, almost local ) and some not (like Hello Sunday selling handcrafted vegan skincare products). All high quality.  Then I turned a corner and came across DAUB.

If there’s one thing I mean another thing I need want, it’s a comfy pair of yoga pants with deep pockets. I’ve gone back to yoga at my gym and being able to move around with a pair that’s not too snug or loose and keeps its shape is key. Personally I don’t go for tie dye or loud coloured prints but I found a pair of solid print that felt like second skin. With pockets big enough to carry a cell phone. The fit and fabric is awesome.

Featuring a perfectly placed side pocket for all your essentials, the Pocket Legging keeps you hands-free on the go.

Manufactured right here in Vancouver, Daub is a print based activewear and every day lifestyle clothing brand.  The company works in small production runs and in their signature limited edition prints, all made exclusively by Creative Director, Lexi Soukoreff. With their West Coast laid back style they also carry a decent selection of clean beauty & skin care, home, gifts and more. Think yoga mats and swimwear.

DAUB IS PROUDLY MADE IN CANADA.

Folk Fest – on the other side of the fence

vender2SUN day  was the third and final day of the 36th annual Vancouver Folk Music Festival at Jericho Beach. 

The beach at Jericho
Jericho has to be my all time favorite Vancouver beach – it’s never too crowded and it goes on and on and on……

Always an amazing musical  lineup of world class performers which you can hear quite clearly from the other side of the fence while perusing the other lineup of various vendors under white tents set up all along the beach – haute hippie style.
