Vendor Profile: Coucou Salut
Hi! My name is Shannon Adolph, and I’m an illustrator, graphic designer and textile artist. I create a line of illustrated and hand-printed home accessories under the brand coucou salut. Originally from Saskatoon, I now live in Montreal.
I'm inspired by the world around me, and try to avoid being overly literal when I illustrate and design. This results in circles that aren’t perfectly round and squares that aren’t always square. My designs are accessible because I leave room for imagination to take over! My textiles are printed with a gender-neutral color palette, so they can always be passed down - and around - to the next little kiddos in line.
I know that parents are important too, so everything I create is carefully designed and constructed, and in keeping with my sustainable ethos, hand-pulled in small runs using water-based dyes and sustainable fabrics. I believe in supporting my community, and source everything I can from local or Canadian-based suppliers.
