Hotpot Variety combines a love of vibrant colours with versatile patterns, creating designs for the eccentric in all of us. Every piece is designed in Canada and carefully hand-crafted with sustainability and slow-fashion in mind.
The label was founded in the midst of the 2020 pandemic by Jessica Papp and is based in Toronto, Ontario. Papp is a self-taught maker who enjoys working and experimenting with various textiles.
The name Hotpot Variety is inspired by Jess’ Vietnamese heritage and upbringing. Hot pot is a throw-everything-in-together soup that is generally enjoyed in a communal setting, and no bowl is ever alike. And just like the soup, every piece that is created is completely one-of-a-kind with the community in mind.
