When it comes to shopping at local and small businesses, there are so many in the city of Toronto. It is just too difficult to keep track of all of them. There are many that are worth keeping an eye on, while others are just too over-hyped. That is why I am here to introduce to you ai Toronto Seoul, a brand that is absolutely worth keeping an eye on. This Toronto based brand offers a variety of pieces that are made in Seoul, Korea, and shipped directly to Toronto. They offer trendy pieces that are both conventional and fashionable. They certainly have a modern Instagrammable aesthetic that has caught the attention of many upscale buyers.
Ai Toronto Seoul is a sustainable-luxury brand that is PETA-approved and made in collaboration with Korean designers. All of their handbags and accessory pieces are made with vegan material and are absolutely trustworthy. Each product is made in small batches so if there’s something that catches your eye, it is best to get your hands on it before anyone else snatches it away. Ai is also a family-owned business run by a fashion-forward mother and her three loving and hard-working daughters. They work tirelessly to provide Torontonians with the best quality handbags and accessories.
Popular Canadian style and beauty trend starters continue to recognize this brand as one that offers must-have handbags of the year. In particular, the two-piece Park handbag and the roomy Work handbag series have been noted for the design and the functionality it has as a daily-use item. Not only do these pieces work perfectly as a work bag, but it also looks very stylish and luxurious. It can just as easily be used for more casual occasions as well. Both the Park series and Work series come with adjustable and removable straps. Just alter the length at which you are holding the bag. You can also choose to fling the bag over your shoulder, hold it in your hands or wear it as a crossbody bag.

In addition to bags, Ai also carries additional accessories that are worth looking at. The most relevant fashion statement during this pandemic are the mask accessories. There are mask chains in various colours that can help keep your mask on you at all times during the day in a stylish way. Whether it be times when you need a little bit of fresh air, sip on a cup of coffee or give your ears a bit of a break, you never have to worry about losing your mask or having it touch other contaminated surfaces. It will be right around your neck with a sleek and upscale chain. These chains are made from recycled acrylic from signboard companies and recycled acrylic production plants in Korea. Hopefully, when the pandemic is over and there is no more use for masks, these chains can just as easily be used to keep your glasses and sunglasses with you at all times.
There is also a category called Little ai. This section is dedicated to providing fun and colourful pieces to ages 3 and up. There are small bags, like the Fanny Mini, and even child-sized masks that will fit small faces perfectly. The masks come in various colours and chains as well. Hopefully, the mixing and matching of chains and masks bring your child a bit more joy during these uncomfortable times.
