Treana Peake has devoted her life to spreading the care that she experienced in her small town, Albertan upbringing around the world.
As a philanthropist first, and a retailer second, Obakki has become a space for both utilizing and transforming the structures of traditional retail. Obakki is a purpose-led lifestyle brand that connects people through modern design. This online and Vancouver-based brick-and-mortar brand offers homeware products made by artisans all over the world while upholding three principles: sustainability, traceability, and ethical production.
On this episode of The Voice of Retail, Michael LeBlanc sits down with Treana to talk about the story of Obakki, how she fosters a symbiotic relationship between philanthropy and retail, and how she manages intricate supply chains as an independent retailer in unprecedented times.
