Our collection consists of, hand-picked goods and gifts, with an emphasis on local, handmade and one-of-a-kind products. Our products are inspired by your summer vacations on Manitoulin Island where your days are spent on the lake and in the evening you’re cozied up to a campfire with friends and family.

Metal and wood furniture

Kathryn Corbiere is the owner-operator at one KWE (Ojibwe for “woman”), the Mindemoya-based shop where she designs and builds contemporary metal and wood furniture, in addition to offering CNC plasma-cutting and custom fabrication.

Kathryn first started building furniture for her own use, but after posting photos of her creations online soon developed a following of friends and family who admired her work.

Word spread, and she began fielding requests about custom projects for her “modern-rustic” furnishings.
