Kenneth Torrence of Barter Design in Vancouver BC - home products found at Fernie, BC Canada

about the maker

Barter was born from a belief that if we look to our natural environment and community, we will find everything we need to live sustainably and abundantly within our local environment. Therefore, embracing this belief and vision, our connection to local became the driving force behind us.

A balance between learning from local craft masters and local sustainable material potential, we strive to make products that are beautiful and purposeful, becoming valued family pieces that can be handed down over the generations, gaining the patina of time, our most valuable resource.
