Foreste is a unique line of products created for kids and adults who enjoys play, design and learning. Located in Montreal, and founded by Sophie Joubarne, our brand prides on producing affordable, sustainable and playful products. We like working with noble materials such as wood and we try to keep as much of the production local (and its usually very local a.k.a our own studio).
Foreste is a side branch of the screen printing studio UNIK Printshop, the brand under which lots of the products came to life.
Sophie graduated in Graphic Design in 2003 and had the chance to taste the fun of screen printing during a student exchange in Marseille, south of France. At that time, little did she know that she would end up making a living out of this awesome printing technique. Its after 14 years of Tree planting in the north west forests of Canada, (which definitely taught her hard work and resourcefulness) that she decided to jump into the entrepreneurial adventure. As a result, Unik Printshop came to life in late 2009 and Foreste is a new division of the business since the summer of 2018.
