The Find: sustainable, paper-like bins provide a new way to artfully organize household objects

Toronto-based company Toofifteen has created a beautiful new way to use Tyvek, a sustainable material used to make protective coveralls. The new business, launched by design duo Ashley Botten and Nina Jones, consists of three simple products: a pouch (that you can write on and decorate yourself), a multi-purpose bin and a “pouf” (essentially a square ottoman), each of which is recyclable, durable, mold-resistant and extremely easy to wipe clean. We particularly love the versatility of the bin, which comes in three sizes and can artfully contain a variety of household things, like floor plants, bathroom towels and fruit. It’s also the most affordable option, with small bins priced at $23.

Available at Augustina Boutique, 138 Cumberland St., or toofifteen.com

Pop-Up Pick: snag bold, festive socks at Yo Sox’s holiday shop

Pop-Up Pick: snag bold, festive socks at Yo Sox's holiday shop

(Images: Rodrigo Daguerre)

In terms of well-received stocking stuffers, you can’t go wrong with a pair of playful socks. From today until the end of December, Toronto-based company Yo Sox is peddling its bold graphic socks—which have been spotted on the athletic feet of Joffrey Lupul—at its first holiday pop-up on Queen Street. (The fast-growing brand only launched last year, and can already be found in over 3,000 stores across North America.) This winter, its collection includes ankle and knee-high socks adorned with festive Christmas trees, Movember-themed moustache patterns and, of course, plenty of bright-hued polka-dots and stripes. (Got a grouchy gift recipient? They may appreciate the label’s “Bah, Humbug” socks.) For a particularly special sock enthusiast, visitors can sign up for the company’s signature “soxscription” service, which delivers a different pair of funky-printed socks to your door every month for a year.

Nov. 19-Dec. 22. 567 Queen St. W., yo-sox.com
