The Story of Jackalope June
Owned and operated in St. John's Newfoundland, we are a small shop hand making baby products. Using only the highest quality materials, we focus on offering sustainable and safe items. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, because all our tiny humans deserve to enjoy our products with a little less worry for their adults. This is the core message that inspired Jackalope June to make modern, playful products, that rely on the quality of traditional handcrafting.
From Kara Lynn Designs to Jackalope June
You might recognize us from our earlier name, Kara Lynn Designs! As we’ve grown up so has our company! Our original bunny has evolved and transformed into the magical jackalope. The jackalope is a powerful and strong mythical storybook creature. We want our products to make children feel that same magic and power themselves.
Our company was born in June, when the flowers are blooming, warm summer breezes fill the air and the jackalopes run wild and free. So, it was only fitting that our name, Jackalope June, was an homage to such a magical time of year.
About the Artist
I am a multi-disciplinary artisan who moved to Newfoundland after attaining a Commerce Degree. I find inspiration and comfort in the heritage craft presence here.
My love of traditional crafting blossomed during my first job as a tailor. I created the costumes for a Canadian re-enactment museum focused on the 1800’s Canadian Fur Trade. This experience highly influences my design process, material selection, and construction process of my products for Jackalope June.
