What is Nyahallo?

Welcome to Nyahallo, a Canadian-owned indie small business born from a passion for pop culture and alternative fashion! We're on a mission to inject whimsy and cuteness into a world of bland cookie-cutter designs. Our aim is to create unique, yet wearable pieces that resonate with people from all walks of life, celebrating a variety of aesthetics. Every item in our shop is lovingly crafted, designed and carefully curated by Jen (owner and designer) and Ana (designer), with a focus on high quality. We're disrupting the status quo by offering premium materials, unique designs, and exceptional value. By shopping with us, you're supporting a small duo of creatives who pour their hearts into every design along with my family, who sometimes step in to help me when the shop gets too busy. Your purchase directly supports me, my family, and my best friend - thank you for being part of our journey!

Who is Jen? Hello there! I'm Jen, the owner and one of the designers of Nyahallo. I am a creative enthusiast with a passion for designing and bringing ideas to life. With a fun and adventurous approach to business and life, I'm living my dream as a full-time entrepreneur. Growing up, I was always drawn to the arts, and during the pandemic, I took the leap and turned my creativity into a career. As a self-proclaimed workaholic with a mind full of ideas, I'm thrilled to be turning my chaos into reality and making a living doing what I love. When I'm not working, you can find me gaming (currently obsessed with Borderlands 3!), traveling, learning new languages, or trying new foods (I'm a total foodie at heart!). Who would have thought that I'd become a fashion designer? Not my younger self, that's for sure! But here I am, living my best life and loving every minute of it.

Who is Ana? Meet Ana, the counterpart of our dynamic designer duo! Not only is Ana an absolutely fantastic artist and designer, but she's also Jen's best friend of over 10 years! As of June 2022, Ana joined the Nyahallo family and has been bringing her unique magic to our designs ever since. You can find more of her stunning work on social media @blanchiame (X, IG, Pinterest, and more!) We're so grateful to have her on board and can't wait for you to see what we create together! Here are her words: 

Hi there~ I'm a freelance illustrator, who focuses on anime and kidlit art styles. I draw both digitally and traditionally. I love writing stories, design characters and clothes~
Inspired by nature, music, folktales, dreams and everything whimsical and magical in general ♥

How about the rest of the Nyahallo team? When things get busy, we're lucky to have some extra help from our loved ones! Jen's brother, Bill, and mom, Emily, graciously lend a hand with fulfillment, packing, and shipping. We're so grateful for their support, which allows us to keep up with demand and get our products to you quickly and efficiently. Thanks, Bill and Emily - we couldn't do it without you!

By shopping with Nyahallo, you're directly supporting a small, tight-knit duo of creatives! Your purchase makes a real difference in the lives of Jen, her family, and her best friend, Ana. You're helping a dream become a reality, and we can't thank you enough for that! When you choose Nyahallo, you're choosing to support a small business that's truly passionate about what we do.
