About Us


Distaff&Spindle is a small business based in Manitoba, Canada.
Inspired + motivated by Nature, our jewelry + decorative items are handcrafted using organic elements + recycled materials. 

Distaff&Spindle partners with Artisans in Madagascar who handmake many of our finished products. Our relationship with these Artisans developed during the 11 years I spent living on that Great Red Island. Find out more about the Artisans who create our products in the Artisans Section.

Our Goal is to invest in the Artisans + their work by purchasing their products at a fair price. In addition, we reinvest part of Distaff&Spindle's profits back into the country, to help those with limited access to quality health care + education.

"In her hands she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers. She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy."

Proverbs 31:19+20
