- CLEARANCE SALE!
We wouldn't be where we are today without our team, they're the essence and pulse of our brand! Our team started out small, and continues to evolve, change, and grow right along with us. We couldn't be more thankful for the talented, diverse, and eclectic people we get to work alongside. Say hello to our Rug & Weave family!
Cofounder & Marketing Manager
Passionate for interior design & decor, Sarah scours and hunts for new treasures for the shop while also working with our design team to create new lines of pillows and textiles for the store. Sarah also manages our ecommerce platform, has multiple years experience in brand marketing & holds both Biology & Business degrees from the University of Windsor.
Outside of R&W she loves to spend time with her sons Finn and Sully, go for trail runs through the woods, and work on home projects. She likes to keep busy, and is always thinking about the next thing!
Cofounder & Operations Manager
Avid runner turned "Rug Slinger", Svein works tirelessly to source & curate our rug assortment, while also managing the team and day-to-day operations in the warehouse. Svein holds a strong background in Sales Management as well as a Masters in Kinesiology from the University of Windsor.
His favourite thing to do is cook a delicious meal on the BBQ, while soaking up some sun and having a cold local beer. A good tune on Spotify and his little man Finn bouncing to the beat is the ultimate pairing.
Trepany comes from a breath of experience in the Retail Industry, from owning & operating her own boutique downtown Toronto, to managing large scale retail departments. As our Warehouse Lead, she is responsible for warehouse operations, inventory, and systems, and is always after the next big storage & organization solution!
In her spare time she likes to read and relax on the couch with her cats, take walks, window shop in small downtown neighbourhoods, and clean and organize - she prefers things just so! Lately, she's gotten into pilates - it's her favourite way to get some stretching and movement in. And of course, before COVID, planning dinner or coffee dates with friends and family.
Most people wouldn't know that she's a lefty. She relates to a lot of things regarding left-handers! For instance, that they're highly creative and approach ideas and solutions differently because they have the unique ability to use both sides of their brain at once. She also likes sports and especially loves following the Raptors, Jays and everything F1.
Retail Store Manager
Emma's extensive experience in HR, athletics, customer service, and team management lends well to her roll as our Shop Manager. Always eager to find solutions and maximize efficiency, you can find Emma in our brick & mortar and warehouse organizing the team, helping customers, and working on an always replenishing list of projects.
When Emma's not at work, she loves to spend time outside with her husband Max, son Finley, and dog Maisy! Rock climbing is one of her family's favourite hobbies, and most of their vacations revolve around climbing adventures.
Most people wouldn't know that she has a burning passion for photography. In high school and university she not only took classes, but developed her own film and did print making!
Kristine is a current student at the University of Guelph, and is finishing up her Human Kinetics degree. She comes to us from a multi-faceted background, which includes running her own business. She's passionate about sustainability and entrepreneurship, and is always ready to jump in and help the team in whatever way she can. Her skills in visual merchandising & interior design are flourishing in her new role, and you can catch her friendly face doing our local deliveries around town during the pandemic!
In her spare time, Kristine loves doing anything outdoors—mostly skiing in the winter and cycling/hiking in the summer. She also enjoys taking her foster dog, Lola, for walks around Guelph.
Something most people wouldn't know about Kristine is that she's fluent in French. She grew up in a french speaking part of Ottawa, so it was really important to her family that she learned French at a young age. At the time, she wasn't the biggest fan of being the only anglophone in a francophone school, but now she's so grateful to be bilingual!
Digital Product Merchandiser
Alison combines her background in visual art, more than seven years of managing administration operations in fast-paced environments in New York City, and her writing credentials, to curate the retail experience for Rug & Weave's online customers. She holds an undergraduate degree from Brooklyn College and an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of King's College.
In her spare time you can find her pitching freelance articles, curled up with a good book, or snuggling her adorable feline Birdy.
One thing you might not know about Alison is that she was born and raised in Florida, and has an incredibly eclectic and amazing background in Theatre Production!
Order Fulfillment & Design Consultant
Alyssa is the busy hands and friendly face behind each and every packed order in the warehouse. With a variety of experience in sales and home decor, she brings a phenomenal attention to detail and unparalleled work ethic to the role. She has her own independent styling services, and recently has began assisting our customers with all their design needs in the form of product suggestions and moodboards!
In her spare time Alyssa likes to hang out with friends & family, explore new places, go thrifting & antiquing, style homes, and constantly restyle her own apartment.
Turtles terrify her. Yes, you read that right...
