W1 Hundred, where art and fine craft meet in pieces inspired by nature, and created in natural materials.

W1 Hundred was created by Debra Hunter. Designer. Craftsman. Artist. Photographer.
W1 Hundred was born out of a love for art, craftsmanship, hand-work, design, traditional processes, environmental best practices, and an interest in domestic textile production. Debra wanted to create a “Made in Canada” project, inspired by Canadian traditions, that took the concept to a whole new level.
The original discussion focused on the concept of ethical textiles, fine craft as art, and the concept of a 100 Mile Wardrobe; a wardrobe that could go from yarn to clothing within a radius of 100 miles from where the clothing was being made. This was a spinoff of another small project of Debra’s, “Handmade in Canada”, which was already using Canadian wool and natural dyes. Creating W1 Hundred was the next step, a way to bring unique, ethical, Canadian-made pieces, to the mainstream.
Recently the W1 Hundred project has ventured further into fine craft, with small leather goods and wood elements being added to the offering. It was a natural move, as leather and woodwork have long been traditions in Canadian culture.
Creating a truly Canadian product is a luxury. Products where the raw materials are domestically sourced, and created by hand, are incredibly rare. W1 Hundred was an opportunity to create beautiful pieces, by hand.
Each W1 Hundred item is designed and handcrafted by Debra. One-of-a-kind pieces make up a large proportion of the W1 Hundred offering.
We take an artist’s approach to creating functional pieces.
W1 Hundred is creating rare items, in a rare way.
