Maplerose is a home-based, family-run, online business located in Nelson, BC, Canada.
Originally opened in 2008 as a brick and mortar storefront, Maplerose has long been here to support those interested in Waldorf education and the ideas of Rudolf Steiner.
Now Maplerose is entirely online and run by me, Jenn, the 4th owner to continue the wool, wood and beeswax fun that is Maplerose.
Mr. Maplerose is always here for support and our children, Walt and Charlotte, are expert product testers. I have a background in photography and art (BFA NSCAD), teaching, cooking, and writing. I've always been a maker and some way or other have made a living making things.
From first hand experience as a mother, I have found great enjoyment watching my kids engage in open-ended play. I know that providing them with the right environment and 'tools' is something can catapult their creativity and learning.
You can trust in the products you find here on Maplerose - I look for sustainably-made, ethically-produced, eco-friendly, organic, and, if I'm lucky, locally-made. I love it when things are made to last. I love it when things are made close by. It's all a balance and I hope you like what you find here.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
