Downtown Betty is a Beach Lifestyle Company started from scratch in 2005, here in Vancouver, the beautiful coastal city of beaches. The roots lie in the Pacific North West but trail throughout the world, gathering like-minded concepts & products that work to tread lightly on the planet while enjoying the very best of it, consciously. We enjoy bike rides, sunny days on the beach, yoga in your heart & soul, forest walks, flowers, riding the wind, eating healthy organic foods, surfing the waves, skimming the tidal pools & jumping in puddles. All of these things we love in life have influenced our brand, things we find on the bike path, and things we create.

Downtown Betty's collective brands include: Bicycle by Downtown Betty a natural fiber clothing line designed with real life in mind, it is a casual glamour that truly feels as good as naked, Downtown Betty Originals silk screened bags & home accessories for the coolest things in your life, and Bicycle R.e.c.l.a.i.m.e.d. unique fabric finds/pieces created along the way, that work well with the life on the bicycle path, quickly all becoming favourites. Further down the path we fell in love with Get Em On sheepskin boots that make for cozy Sundays, surf trips & play time at the cabin ~ a perfect match for Downtown Betty!
