All about Alice

So it's that time of year again when we introduce all things fuzzy.  And it's finally cold enough to do it without making all of you readers cringe.  Fall/winter is our favourite season here at Paper People, as we love to keep you warm & cozy with our delectable sweaters, knits and one of a kind upcycled accessories.

Here at Paper People, we are always thinking of ways to conserve on materials and reduce waste and our accessories line is the perfect solution to that.  The Alice Mitts are made from scraps left over from clothing production.  And inevitably when cutting fabric yardage, there is always a little bit leftover from the end, so we use our leftover jersey scraps to create the linings of these mitts.  Organic cotton jersey of course!

Designer, Jenn checks for falling snow in her winter getup.  She chooses a feminine, floral pair of Alice Mitts to match her Theresa Cowl.  And the little pops of colour are a great accent to her Soia & Kyo coat (designed in Montreal) that she picked up at Fresh Collective.  Visit Jenn at the One of a Kind Show & Sale here in Toronto to pick out your very own pair or two!

Jessie is looking warm and cozy in her winter attire.  Check out her gorgeously eye catching Alice Mitts and matching wrap that she crocheted herself!  We just love how beautifully the colours accent together.  As designer of both a jewellery, Sugar Rush, and nail polish line, Renegade Fawn, Jessie is all about colour!

Liz is looking stylish and edgy in her winter wear.  Her black & grey Alice Mitts match nicely while still creating a subtle contrast with her midnight black attire.  Liz and her partner Kelly of The Style Initiative will be hosting a holiday pop up sale in December at Banu on Queen West.  Be sure to mark it on your calendar and surprise your loved ones with a unique, locally made treasure this holiday season!

Meaghan is rocking a nineties look with her earthy hues and vintage blouson jacket, a fun hand me down from a friend who went up north.  Her brown and cranberry Alice Mitts accent her outfit perfectly.  Meaghan's all girl bike gang/arts collective, the Deadly Nightshades just did a collaboration with Bookman Lights of Sweden.  Check out their super current, super funky stylings here.
