more about The Mending Lounge
MERCY Studio (Jennifer Halchuk and Richard Lyle) are noted for their innovative use of fabrics. The design studio MERCY was founded in 1994 as a symbiotic design partnership, always inspired by colour and textiles. Fabrics are sourced for their quality, strength and beauty. Many are custom woven, and shipped loomstate for finishing after a garment is made. Through their ongoing travels, close direct relationships with textile mills have been honed, resulting in fantastic designs from some of the oldest weavers in the world. Both designers control all aspects of design, and all pieces are handmade locally. Mercy also owns and operates Gaspard, a Queen Street shop that often debuts international collections in Canada with products that have a close connection to their producers.
