Hi I'm Vanessa

Boreal Blues is my home based business found in Timmins, Ontario.

During the Covid Pandemic, I found and fell in love with organic indigo dye.

All of my pieces are hand dyed, inspired by northern life, nature that surrounds me, and places that have a special meaning for me.

I hope my pieces will bring joy and wonder to your every day.
