Cabin is the passion project of founder & art director-in-chief, Emily Taylor, who spends her 9-5 working on client illustration and surface design projects for advertising, publications and paper goods, product designs, home and sewing textiles and more. Cabin Journal is Emily's outlet for printing risograph art prints, a passion project that has evolved into a secondary fledgling business. Emily is based out of Toronto, Canada, and sometimes Prince Edward Island or Naples, Florida. You can find her drawing here:, or on Instagram at @emily_illustrates.

Cabin has been evolving since it’s inception in 2014. What began as a prospective small-press, independently published magazine focusing on young makers in Canada has transformed instead into a fledgling stationery & home goods company with a nostalgic feel, and twin passions for nature and pattern. Both projects still share a love of paper goods and the unique and personal tactile experience they lend the user. The magazine contents are still simmering in the background and perhaps one day Cabin will circle around to its publication origins.

Cabin is based out of the heart of downtown Toronto, wedged between (what was) the Fashion District and China Town. Cabin, the stationery company, began in earnest in the winter of 2016, debuting risograph postcards, art prints and illustrated tea towels at Toronto's holiday City of Craft show. In spring 2017, Cabin began wholesaling; expanding the product range out with an emphasis on folded cards. Winter 2017 brought Cabin's first large consumer show, participating in the first, of a number of, One of a Kind shows.
