Norah, Luca + Nico

Words from the beauty mama.

“12 years, 2 boys and many lived adventures- with plenty more still awaiting. Kimani hailing from Kenya and Norah (IG @norah.gentiane) a French Canadian, born and raised along the north west coast of Canada, happily stumbled upon each other creating a beautiful mess of a life they share with children Luca Olivier (9.5) and Nico Francis (4.5). Excited to soon be calling Vancouver Island home, after five years of living in the Okanagan valley. Norah is the owner and curator of @handledgoods a sustainable slow fashion, small shop on Instagram which sells preloved, vintage + eclectic goods. Inspired by her forever love of thrifting, since childhood with her own maman, and by her extensive travels. With the long term plan of including Kenyan textiles to the shop, sourced through local women’s guilds of ethically made goods.”

A forever loved quote is Leonard Cohen’s
“Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything That's how the light gets in”
