Kyle McPhee (Phee) was born and raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Over the years he worked in a number of trades from plumbing to skate park building from coast to coast. These experiences taught him “the value of tough goods and quality materials that are built to last”, and contributed to the founding of Phee’s Original Goods, makers of quality canvas and leather goods. The designs he produces aim to respect the legacy of craftspeople that went before, while fitting squarely into the contemporary world. Kyle considers himself a proud citizen of Canada’s North Atlantic. He and his partner Robyn, who is originally from Scotland, make their home on beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, and name each of the products after places in Cape Breton.
