Located in Victoria, BC, Picot is a beautifully curated shop filled with modern handcrafted wares and thoughtful gifts. Owner Britt Buntain, who is also an avid weaver, has maintained a vibe that is at once minimalist and bohemian, with artful woven hangings made by Britt herself covering the boutique’s walls. The inspiration for the name of the boutique is as multifaceted as the store itself — ‘Picot’ was Britt’s grandmother’s maiden name and is also the name for a type of loop stitch that finishes off a woven product. Chock full of apothecary goods, pottery, textiles and jewelry, Picot is spilling over with all things lovely.
