Donna, mother of two, is the founder and CEO of Hanlyn Collective. The idea for HC came in 2017 after her son was born. She was annoyed with the lack of diversity in clothes for boys and felt they were pigeonholed into wearing blue, cars, trucks, and construction. She was running a successful events business and was unable to work on this idea at the time, especially in addition to being a first-time mom! Fast forward to March 2020. Donna gave birth to a baby girl nine days after Toronto’s first state of emergency. This was a joyful time for the family but also scary due to the new virus. With travel restrictions and no large gatherings being permitted, two weeks after giving birth, Donna was forced to close her events business, an industry she had been in for 18 years.
With the support of her family and friends, she decided to take a risk and follow her passion, making a dream a reality! HC launched in March 2021. They use quality bamboo, an ethical manufacturing team and skilled artists focused on creating unique designs that will work for ALL children and families. Donna is passionate about the environment. “I want to be a part of the solution, not the problem!”
