Toronto startup BRIKA has joined this niche online marketplace with its whimsical, Pinterest-inspired virtual store. The website offers a carefully curated selection of "modern crafts," including jewelry, housewares, clothing, bags, stationery and baby items, from a hand-picked batch of independent creators.
Unlike other online stores, the stories behind the creators themselves are front and centre in this e-boutique, where you can get a glimpse into what inspired each maker to create the products sold on BRIKA, though a charming and highly Pinterest-friendly interface. Their motto of "building a beautiful life" definitely shines through the charming layout of every page of the site.
