ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Chantel is a wife, mother and Newfoundlander born and raised. She grew up in an artsy family and her parents ran a small craft store, so it seemed only natural that she come to mainland Ontario to pursue a career in the fashion industry. Chantel graduated with Honours in Fashion Design and Production and has called Ontario home for just over 20 years.
After working in the corporate world for the last 17 years, Chantel decided to step into the entrepreneurial world with the creation of Whiskey Tan. Inspired by her love of animals, and quality made goods, Chantel draws on her crafty roots and years of experience to create the highest quality products.
We also believe strongly in giving back. A portion of proceeds from the sale of each dog collar will be donated back to local no kill animal shelters.
To date we have proudly donated to the HBSPCA, GGA (Gillian's Greyhound Adoptions), and the Mississauga Humane Society.
