We are Mark and Cynthia LeBreton, owners of H.E.A.P.S. Handworks. The name HEAPS is all about the things that we value most in life ... Health, Energy, Abundance, following our Passion, and Sharing with other people. We love quality, handmade goods ourselves and wanted to create pieces that other people can enjoy too. We hand-pull each screen print onto premium quality T-Shirts, hoodies, tank tops, baby one pieces, kitchen aprons, kitchen tea towels, napkins, and canvas tote bags that are made using eco friendly inks.
Our designs reflect the things that inspire us or make us smile. Things like animals with personality ... because animals are really the best people ... and vintage kitchen wares that are reminiscent of simpler times ... and of course the most inspiring thing - food! We hope you'll enjoy these designs, too, with friends and family as you share meals and memories together.
About our name...
Our name H.E.A.P.S is about the things we value in life and believe will create a fuller life experience: Health, Energy, Abundance, Passion and Sharing.
Health – our physical health is our most valuable personal asset, and a lack of health can affect every aspect of our lives, from finances to friendships. Take time to eat well, exercise, relax, and build relationships. It's worth the investment.
Energy is about laughing, loving, exercising, playing, and working hard at something you love to do. We believe these things actually create more energy in our lives and our physical bodies.
Abundance – we live on a planet with abundant resources. Yes, we’ve misused some resources and hoarded others, but ultimately there is enough to go around when we learn to use our resources wisely and when we share with others.
Passion – follow your passion in life and explore your interests. We love handmade artwork, and now we create images that bring a smile to your day. What is it that you love to do? Find a way to do it!
Sharing – when everyone shares, there’s enough to go around. Although we think this is true on a global scale, the place to start is with us. Our business shares donations with local charity organizations that bring resources and education to people who have had less opportunity in life.
Heaps to you!
