ABOUT

Pastis Olive is the perfect mix between my passion for design, ecofriendly products and the love of hosting people.
Enora Billard
Founder

Pastis Olive was born in Enora’s heart when she was a child. Having grown up at the gates of a forest in an old rustic house, Enora spent her time playing the perfect host, where cabins with small tables were well set up, and the choice of meticulously selected dishes defined the location of her “guests”.

Hosting was an art that she happily cultivated in her games. In early 2019, she began to make the first collection of this emerging Montreal company, Pastis Olive.

Serving trays, coasters and objects of all colors are born every week in the Rosemont district. Using natural wood, yellow, pink, blue, black, colors explode in all directions.

The dyes are 100% natural, ecofriendly and handmade. Each finishing product is carefully concocted with natural products, such as boiled turmeric, boiled beets, crushed walnuts or colors made from dry pigments. A 100% natural oil and wax finish is applied to protect the stain and the wood from external aggressions.

Each object is handmade with Canadian maple, which makes each product unique because wood has its peculiarities, its whims, and its colors.
