Women in High Demand 👑
Raise our women high 🙌🏼👑
In honour of International Women's Day, we introduced Women in High Demand - a reflection and celebration of strong, ambitious and bad-ass female entrepreneurs.
All March long, we featured women that #ChoosetoChallenge the status quo, inspire us to think critically about our actions, raise awareness about gender inequality and celebrate women's achievements.

Having been in the medical aesthetics game for over 10 years, Amberly Donnelly, owner + operator of Plain Jane Skinbar, opened her first location (amidst a pandemic) in the hip Main Street neighbourhood of Vancouver. Her approach to correcting skin damage caused by the environment focuses heavily on results, simplicity and accessibility for everyone. She believes just like going to the gym, your skin health should be a routine part of your health and wellness routine.
Founded in 2016 on the West Coast of Canada, Your Bag of Holding, otherwise known as YBH, was born out of an abundance of textural and organic inspiration. With a background in visual art and construction, designer Emily Heffring found the perfect balance of fun and function to deliver beautiful sheepskin and leather creations, all made in-studio with love.
After seeking out personal smoking pieces for years, founder Victoria Ashley, noticed a notable gap in the industry. While acceptance of cannabis use was on the rise, the design continued to lack the creativity demanded by other categories. Laundry Day is a line of design-forward smokeware on a mission to provide more approachable products that dispel stigmas, redefine outdated expectations, cater to modern voices and expand the industry’s status quo.
Emily Leung is the founder of Ohai Collective, a Canadian cannabis lifestyle and accessories brand for the style conscious and aesthetically aware. Found in 2018 and built by an all-women freelance team in Vancouver, Ohai features a curated collection of Elevated Essentials that embodies a passion for storytelling, cannabis, and health & wellness.
Launched in 2018, Allume is a leading cannabis lifestyle accessories brand and online shop, catered for high-minded women. After receiving a prescription for medical cannabis to treat chronic migraines and idiopathic generalized epilepsy, founder and creative director Camille Chacra found her calling and passion for the plant. She sought to curate and design items that were timeless, style-focused and highly functional with the intention to help elevate rituals.
Happy International Women's Month! 💕
