Welcome to Picot Collective

Hi, I'm Britt! Picot ( pronounced pee-koe) is a lifestyle and wellness brand committed to our values of simplicity, quality, and community. We create products that feel nourishing and support grounding in everyday routines.

We create products to support wellness rituals

Picot Collective artisan store

I started this company as a little brick and mortar shop in Fernwood in 2015 👆🏼 as a way to highlight and support the makers community in Victoria, BC. In the early days, we sold a curation of handmade textiles, ceramics, natural skincare, jewelry, teas, art, and hosted art openings for our wall of rotating features. 

Now, our team works remotely across Canada in Victoria, BC., Toronto, ON., Pender Island, BC., and Coquitlam, BC.

We wanted to create something that was our own

We created the "Honey Tobacco" scent for a line of candles in 2015 and within two years of business, I watched our products grow in demand and made the decision to pivot my business model. In the summer of 2017, I hired Jennifer UrsellI as my manufacturing partner as we moved entirely online and opened up our products to wholesale across Canada.

I was still hand-packing and shipping online orders up until September of 2020 when we shifted our order fulfilment to a warehouse in Vancouver. Jennifer bought her dream home on Pender Island and moved our manufacturing over with her. Visiting her there is definitely a perk. We will continue to introduce new scents and products as we think they make a good fit, but our motto will always be to keep things simple, do those things very well. 

Jennifer Picot Collective About Us

in 2019, I reached out to Registered Holistic Nutritionist Kare Gnat to ask if she would be interested in collaborating with us by providing monthly recipes and what has grown out of that is a close friendship and even more devotion to overall wellness behind the Picot brand. We worked together to create the first of two Community Cookbook in Summer of 2020 as a means of sharing food and giving back to local communities. 

 Community Cookbook Canada

The "collective" of this business remains in practice when we host seasonal markets and collaborate with other businesses and local makers to create ceramics, teas, and textiles for us. We donate funds and products to local charities and organizations as a means of helping where we can. We love to learn from others and will often feature interviews on our Lifestyle Blog

 

The story behind the name

Picot is my grandmother Marion's family name. It's also known as as small loops  of twisted thread in lace or embroidery decorating the border of a fabric. Both my mother and grandmother love to knit, and naming my business after her represents familiarity, honouring, and coming together again. 

Marion passed away from Alzheimers in November 2020, and her name for my business will always keep her spirit alive through sharing a love for comforting, handmade goods and delicious, nourishing recipes.

WE CREATE PRODUCTS TO SUPPORT WELLNESS RITUALS

Hi, I'm Britt! Picot ( pronounced pee-koe) is a lifestyle and wellness brand committed to our values of simplicity, quality,and community. We create products that feel nourishing and support grounding in everyday routines

How it started + how it's going

I started this company as a brick and mortar shop in Fernwood in 2015 to highlight the makers community in Victoria, BC. I curated it for ceramics, handmade textiles, natural skincare, jewelry, and artwork. We hosted art openings for artists such as Lauren Mycroft, Ehren Salazar, Kayley Rae, Ash Wilson, and Kimberly Dean.

Our signature scent, "Honey Tobacco" was created as a candle for the shop and it quickly grew into personal products. In the summer of 2017, I hired Jennifer UrselI as my manufacturing partner and we expanded the business to represent the products that we personally trust and feel good about: simple and clean ingredients, beautiful design, comforting scents, and minimal, reusable packaging.

On a personal note, I've struggled with stress affecting various health issues for over a decade. I live my life and operate my business in a way that I can sustainably handle without going out of integrity and good health; I live and breathe that as my personal culture. The best way to reduce the impact that stress has on me is bolstered by my commitment to small, daily habits that are slow, grounding, and anchored to reflection and nourishment. Cooking and baking healthy meals, journalling, counselling, quality time with loved ones, long baths, and limited screen time are all examples of that for me. Our products are intended to partner with these practices that are off-screen. Essentially, I've built a business and product line that is true to my own commitment in overall health, and we offer our products, recipes, and resources out to you in hopes that they do the same.
