September 2020 Issue


Tofino. A small district on the western coast of Canada that is known for its breathtaking scenery, including its sandy beaches, lakes, inlets and ancient rainforest. What makes Tofino extra special is the unique and sustainable brands that have emerged from the community. Tofino Towel Co. is one of these brands.

With its luxury lifestyle products designed in British Columbia, Tofino Towel Co. encourages individuals far and wide to slow down, be present, and enjoy the simplicities of life. Whether it be a cozy fall evening at home or an outdoor adventure to the beach or on a hike, the company aims to help people live outside and love inside.

At Red Brick Emporium [RBE] we believe a perfect hike ends in a picnic, the best night-in involves snuggling in a fuzzy blanket, and the ideal morning starts curled up in bed with tea. Not only does Tofino Towel Co. offer this, but the company also promotes the long-term sustainability of our planet and people. All Tofino towels, blankets, robes, dresses, ponchos, and scarves contain materials sourced from fair-trade artisan makers from around the globe. As well, the organization donates 1% of all profits to preserving Canada’s dreamlike oceans and precious wildlife, donates 1% of its products to people in need, and all employees donate 1% of their time to the protection of Canadian oceans, coastlines and marine wildlife.

How can you support such incredible causes through living your best life? Here are some ideas:

Soak Up the Last Month of Summer with Tofino Towel Co.


Looking for some final summer activities?

How about an afternoon of wine and cheese with your BFF or loved one? - The new Ahoy blanket/throw is suitable for both indoor & outdoor use. It is perfect for picnics at the beach or even just as a decorative bed throw. Available in harbour blue and stone grey. Our favourite picnic spot is the gorgeous Stewart Park located in downtown Perth, Ontario. The added benefit of having your picnic here is being able to stop by RBE afterwards as were just a few steps away! 

Is layout in the sun and relaxing your ideal day, whether it be in the yard, by the pool, or at the beach? If so, one of our Turkish Towels will be perfect for you as they are highly absorbent and fast drying! If you're looking for the perfect location, we recommend heading down to Picton Sandbanks or renting a boat to cruise along the Rideau Canal. 

Aside from embracing the warm days of summer, there's nothing that evokes happiness more than lounging carefree in a comfy robe! The Serene Kimono is pure, simple, and stylish with its finely-woven breathable fabric. Add it to your bohemian style to take a walk and visit all the incredible shops in Perth or wear it while relaxing with a hot cup of coffee on your deck at home. 

Looking for another way to amp up your style? The Lily Beach Robe is perfect for the beach, the pool, or for weekend lounging as its highly absorbent and fast drying. You can also dress it up with a cute pair of boots and head for a breezy summer stroll. 

Start Fall Off Right with Tofino Towel Co. Wrapped Around You


Is fall your favourite season and you're wanting to maximize your fall comfort and coziness? Look no further. 

Start fall off with some self-care. 2020 has a lot of people feeling tense. Maybe its time to stretch out on one of our hand-loomed towels made by traditional artisans in Turkey. These towels come in a wide range of patterns and are perfect to use for comfort during meditation.

Another great way to embrace the early days of fall is curling up with tea and a good book with your best fur-friend. Our various throw blankets will keep you snug and warm. Plus, they're 100% cotton, eco-friendly, and fair trade!

Along with luxuriously soft Tofino Towel Co. blankets, purchase one of our Cocoon Surf Ponchos to maximize your lounging comfort. These ponchos are the perfect combination of quality craftsmanship, functionality and cuteness and will exceed your comfort expectations. Similar styles of ponchos and Kimonos are also available. They're suitable for all genders and are a great way to spend your final days at the cottage. 

Hoping to embrace the wilderness a few more times before the snow hits the ground? Take a hike and or curl up outside with a luxuriously soft to touch yet durable blanket/throw. From the peaks to the path, to even your own backyard, these blankets are perfect! The local Rock Dunder hike is great to embark on. Take one of these soft and warm blankets with you for watching the sunset over the pristine surroundings. P.S. They're great for the hockey rink too!


Regardless of the season, Red Brick has you covered!

Until next month. Xx
