In a cozy corner of Tofino, Merge offers a combination of locally made products, emphasizing quality and innovative design with a focus on natural materials. It also has its own eponymous brand, which includes a selection of home goods, self-care items, and clothing. Merge’s self-care line, with hair and body oil, hair spray, roll-on fragrance, bubble bath, and natural soap, is inspired by the soothing curves of nature, a carefree beachy lifestyle, and a free-spirited attitude. The packaging is created with sustainability and human experience in mind, and designed to be used beyond its initial purpose—boxes can be cut into bookmarks, and bottles get a new life as candle holders.
