Our maple wood toggles are bespoke and hand-crafted in Toronto by a female wood-turner using remnant hard maple. Wood-turning is artisnal craft that uses a wood lathe and hand-held tools to cut a shape symmetrically around a particular axis (like a potter’s wheel). It is estimated that wood-turning has been practised since 6 B.C.
These one-of-kind toggles have been seasoned with pure hemp oil harvested from a local farm. Hemp oil protects the wood from moisture and ultraviolet rays. The toggles are individually hand-branded using a tool made by an onshore company operating since he 1950’s. What’s more Canadian than maple wood toggles?
Our 12 string-twisted rope is 100 percent wool. Ours is made in the famous Muskoka region with local sheep’s wool, minimal processing, and twisted in a small female-owned wool mill. The mill works with local farmers and purchases raw fleece from regenerative farms. Look closely and you may see evidence of nature in the fibers. We love our rope.
