One of the first brands in our shop back in 2013, Norquay Co. is committed to creating quality handmade artisan canoe paddles, made right here in our homeland of Canada. Paddles are crafted from solid cherry wood sourced from Northern Ontario. Each paddle is selected for its unique attributes and then hand-finished in Norquay's West-end studio in Toronto, ON.
Norquay Co. (Nor-ku-way Co.) was originally founded in Montreal, QC in 2013 by artist, adventurist and avid canoeist Natasha Wittke who shared a passion for the great outdoors and equally for great design. It is Canada's original artisan canoe paddle maker (now often copied). In 2015 Norquay Co., moved its studio to Toronto, ON. The company was inspired by the camping & cabin lifestyle, and weekends spent between the north and the city.
