Five local Manitoba curators for your home décor

When decorating your home or condo, adding something personal and curated locally can give it that extra touch of magic. There’s something to be said about knowing exactly who made your décor pieces and which materials were sourced to create these masterpieces. Manitoba has so many talented local artists … Here is a short list of some local curators to source out for your home:

1) Riel Finishings

Rebecca Riel from Winnipeg, MB curates some absolutely stunning tapestries for your home, all of which are hand-woven. Her pieces often incorporate Manitoba emblems such as our province’s shape or a buffalo. Rebecca’s tapestries are a great way to add a little Manitoba flair to your humble abode.
