Who or what is Call Her Moonchild?
Good question! You can think of us as a general store for handmade stuff, kind of like your favourite craft show, but year-round. Our stockists usually describe our vibe as "witchy", "retro" or "boho-chic", but we mostly just make whatever strikes our fancy!
Currently we host 7 super talented, artists and artisans from around Ontario, but we're looking to grow.
What's with the name?
When our shop owner Maddy opened Call Her Moonchild, it was just a little jewellery shop on Etsy that she operated as a hobby project. She plucked the name from the lyrics of a song she was listening to at the time, not thinking CHM would be a longterm project.
Once the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown hit though, she decided to channel her at-home time into expanding Call Her Moonchild into a self-hosted site. Other artisans started to join the site and Call Her Moonchild now sells a lot more than just jewellery, but the name stuck!
Environmental & Ethical Standards
At Call Her Moonchild we're committed to putting our values into practice.
We care about the environment! Most of our clothing is made-to-order to prevent stock excess. On top of this, almost all of our apparel is:
*Made with eco-friendly dyes
*Dyed in low-water dye houses (using about 7x less water use than the average garment), where the water is then recycled in-house
*Made in facilities that incorporate solar power
*Created with a zero-waste mindset where excess textiles are donated or re-purposed
We also believe in humane conditions for our textile partners. All of our clothes are sewn in a 100% sweatshop-free environment. When selecting textile partners, we make sure to choose companies that have a top rating from from W.R.A.P. (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) to ensure that everyone along our production chain is treated fairly.
Thank you for shopping ethically!
We're passionate about our community. We believe in engaging with our neighbours and promoting a sense of community whenever possible! We're happy to offer affordable door-to-door deliveries (which are contactless during the Covid-19 epidemic) across most of the Ottawa Valley. We also love getting involved in local craft shows and community initiatives. If you have an opportunity you think we'd like to hear about, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
