Lot8 is a company dedicated to making functional, natural and sustainable products that reduce its reliance on single-use plastic.


Kim, the founder and the sole employee of Lot8, embarked on a remarkable journey that began with a linen bread bag. Her journey was fueled by a deep desire to honor her late mother's legacy, intertwined with a determination to master the art of sewing, a skill she initially knew nothing about. With unwavering dedication, Kim honed her craft and began crafting simple yet purposeful items to enhance her living space.


Named after a nod to the past, Lot8 pays homage to a 1910 survey map of Kim's beloved Junction neighborhood in Toronto. What started as a personal endeavor eventually flourished into something greater, as Kim's creations found their way into local markets, boutique shops, and now the vast realm of online commerce. Lot8's diverse range of offerings includes aprons, tea towels, cloth napkins, eye pillows, totes, and an array of upcycled marvels such as natural cat toys, bunting flags, and eyeglass cases.


Having since relocated to the serene landscapes of Stratford, Ontario, Kim found herself surrounded by the tranquil beauty of farm country. This shift in scenery brought about a renewed clarity to her mission – a mission rooted in creating durable, natural, and utilitarian products that encourage a culture of reusability while minimizing the generation of fabric waste. With each stitch, Kim endeavors to leave an indelible mark on the world, one that speaks of her dedication to sustainability and responsible consumerism.


What sets Lot8 apart is not just the products themselves, but also the meaningful impact the brand strives to make. With each purchase, a portion of the proceeds is channeled towards supporting The United Way Perth Huron, an organization dedicated to addressing pressing and "unignorable" societal issues. By choosing Lot8, you're not only embracing conscientious shopping but also contributing to the betterment of communities.
