Vendor Spotlight: 5EIZEN

It’s the 5EIZEN (“season”) for Weddings…and Ring Pillows!  We are always on the lookout for great handmade finds from Canadian companies, and when we came across this lovely Etsy shop called 5eizen, we knew we had to share this little gem with our readers.  Pronounced 5-ee-zen, this name is a play on the word “season”, with the number 5 and the word Zen, a coy fusion of fresh and timeless style, both modern and the epitome of elegance.  This Toronto based business founded by Irene Lam has been inspired by her own unique design background and dedication to creating beautiful and chic bridal accessories. Masterfully crafted using the finest dupioni silk and satin, we fell in love with the delicate and feminine Bloomi ring pillow shown below. The attention to detail and quality crafting will carry your precious wedding bands down the aisle in style.  Irene is able to customize pillows and matching accessories like hairpieces and sashes to coordinate with your wedding colours.
