- From the Whitkow Hills in Saskatchewan, KYLE CLOSEN of Clo's General has had a passion for making leather goods for 6 years. 1 year ago he secured a bay in vacancy hall, quit his trade as a welder and hasn’t looked back. In between riding motorcycles like a madman, shredding skateparks with the best of them and getting outside to enjoy time on his snowboard you’ll find him on 104 street downtown YEG chilling with Frank the bandit, his one eyed dog.
- JUSTINE MA is a BDes graduate from the UofA. In 2012, after many moons of working the agency life, she went full time freelance to pursue a specialty in hand lettering and calligraphy. With this niche market, she’s become a maker, creating everything from greeting cards, prints to home goodies.
- It started off as cutting boards in a small apartment in the Oliver neighbourhood.

We are thrilled to have the founder of Oliver Apt., LANDON SCHEDLER, joining us at Made in YEG!
