Cate & Levi Review

The Cate & Levi Collection was created when Josh and his wife were expecting their first born.  They had noticed that there was a lack of one of a kind, responsibly made and beautifully designed products for children.  Josh decided to create a unique collection of products that would be intricately crafted and environmentally responsible.

From sweet stuffed animal friends, hand puppets and purse pals to baby blankets, clothing, winter wear and so much more.

No two Cate & Levi products will ever be the same. Each one is made from reclaimed wool whose colors and textures are individually selected. So, not only are they environmentally safe and responsible, they are unique and one of a kind..never to be duplicated.

Backpack Buddies

With all the sweaters floating around that are destined for the landfill - there is enough material to be creative, which in turn offers more of a possibility for Cate & Levi to expand their production and product line. They have currently added organic clothing, onsie's, t-shirts and hats.
Stuffed Animals

Josh was so kind to send my girls a hand puppet from his collection!

I was so pleased with this particular puppet, as it's really like none other that I've seen or played with before. It's definitley a higher quality and a more creative and colorful puppet than we've experienced. I love the way that it's designed, so that it's easy to wear on your hand and be creative at the same time - reading books with the puppet, acting out a puppet show..ect.

My girls were overjoyed and really love their new Cate & Levi puppet. It's definitley one that has gotten lots of use and I'm happy to know that I'll be able save it as a keepsake for my grandchildren.

When it comes to buying gifts for my children or others I try to be as non-traditional as possible.  I appreciate the fact Josh and his crew keep us rest-assured that their toys are non-toxic, safe for kids and eco-friendly, too.  They would make great gifts for your kids, their friends and even new babies. :)
Journals & Pencil Sets
The Cate & Levi Collection is all HANDMADE at Josh's studio in Toronto, Canada.  Together with is talented production team , he oversee's every aspect of this collection.  All the materials are sourced as close to home as possible.  The process cuts down on shipping and reduces our carbon footprint.  The choice of reclaimed wool reduces demand for new materials that require both water and oil for production. Josh's goal is for these items to leave the softest possible pawprint on our planet.
