Saskatchewan offers many things, one of which is talented, small-business owners. Hilda and Hanel Clothing Co. (H&H) are no exception. Owner, Gabrielle Patenaude, born and raised in the Saskatoon area, has found inspiration for H&H through her love of fashion, drawing and all things Canadian. According to Gabrielle, the first collection, "Home", pays homage to her Prairie and Canadian roots with a"Saskatoon Berry" tee and a commemorative "Canada 150" tee to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday this year. Although the company is still in its infant stage, having just began in June, Gabrielle is continually thinking about the future with a website in development and new designs ready for print. It's exciting to see such passion and enthusiasm behind the scenes of Hilda and Hanel Clothing Co.
Hilda and Hanel is available at MainStage Urban Clothing in Saskatoon and soon to be online at www.hildaandhanel.com
