Selfcare time with local brands
Even though the Covid crisis have many negatives effects, our team would like to mention the tremendous impact it had on local businesses. We are happy and proud to see people from Quebec (and Canada) make a big effort to shop for local products.
In the past weeks we noticed on social media groups that a lot of people were looking for a tone of various products made in locally. We decided to help a little bit by starting a list of companies that specialises in self care and self love.
Love & Beyond’s products are in perfect alignment with Désirables’ values, they promote self love and freedom. This company creates bralettes, undies and cami in Montreal by ‘’extraordinary people’’ with a care for the environment.
