For our sixth installment of introductions to our wonderful supporters, I'm so happy to share the story of Karen and Kai St. Pierre of Kai Bags. This wonderful local business was recently featured in our local magazine Okanagan Life, and they did such a wonderful job of telling their story, I'm going to use excerpts from the article by Dona Sturmanis to share the unique story of this wonderful home based business.
Kai Bags are one-of-a-kind shoulder bags made with lots of vintage, thrift, donated and up-cycled material. Each bag has a special button on it to represent that it is unique. These bags are named after their creator, 14-year-old Kai St. Pierre, who is pretty unique himself. Kai, who has Down syndrome, loves to sew. “I seriously cannot say enough about our special boy, Kai,” says his mother Karen. “He is a loving, compassionate charming, funny, smart, creative and genuine sweet soul.”
