FOLKLIFE is a biannual publication highlighting life and people on the Gulf Islands. FOLKLIFE regularly sells out, and is quickly becoming a collector’s item.
FOLKLIFE is a premium semi-annual print publication inspired by island dwellers who live close to the earth, move with intention, and craft life as an art form. Evoking fine craftership with its minimalist design, matte aesthetic, poetic editorial, and vibrant photography, the 128-page beauty FOLKLIFE honours art and agriculture, business and creativity, food and farming, and dwellings and nature, all with a goal to slow the FOLK down. Each issue explores one theme through engaging interviews, stories, photographs, recipes, and artwork, celebrating and connecting those who live simply and sustainably.
We’re a bunch of FOLKLIFERS living on the Gulf Islands on the west coast of Canada. We live, love, swim, build, work, grow, create, play, and eat the FOLKLIFE lifestyle. It’s delicious. We’re made up of entrepreneurs, writers, designers, editors, photographers, weirdos, and lovely people who live with passion and intention, close to the earth, and with an aim to connect and inspire. FOLKLIFE is a labour of love and we hope your hearts are open.
