Our Story

MADE LOCALLY FOR LOCALS

Republic West lives for all things local and adventure. Located and designed in Kelowna, B.C., Republic West products can be found representing anyplace you call home on the West of Canada or with you on any adventure you may be on. Whether that means that you’re chasing sunrises and sunsets on top of your favourite mountain, cozying up with your favourite people around a campfire, breezy spring morning walks on the boardwalk, or running errands around town, you can count on us to help you represent your love of "home".

 

 

Republic West is a small business owned and operated out of our home in Kelowna, B.C. While it may be the full time job for me, Amanda, my husband and kids can be seen helping with the day to day hustle as well as friendly faces at local markets. Republic West was first established in the 2018, but really found itself growing with the help of local events and businesses in 2019. We have had an amazing time getting to meet everyone, becoming friends with other talented artisans and feeling all the love our “Home” has to share.

 

All our products are designed by Republic West, I put a lot of thought, love and sometimes laughter in our designs (you know what we are talking about if you have seen our drinkware). All our apparel products are either made right here in our home or printed in local B.C. print shops. Drinkware is printed and handpressed right here by us. Once everything is made, we (and I mean mostly me) sew in labels, patches, tag and package everything up. This is truly a local business that is a labour of love in the heart of our home.
