Our Story

Silla was created in 2008 by founder Ashley Young Sil Kong whose intention was to create a shop that was warm, inviting and endlessly inspiring. It started at a local farmer’s market in the spring and as the season came to an end moved into a small storefront in Lethbridge.

We stock a carefully curated selection of products that are eclectic, and classic in design, from gifts to home decor and fashion accessories.
We are passionate about customer service and strive to create the perfect shopping experience. Our customers and the relationships we build with them are our top priority.

In October of 2021, we opened our first store in Calgary’s Market Mall.

Our passion for fashion and accessories led us to open Allis in March 2021, a sister store that focuses on clothing and apparel. 

 Our purpose is to bring joy to people’s everyday life with fun and ingenious design pieces made by both Canadian and international designers that create unique products. We are inspired and in awe of the talent of these designers and as a small, independent business ourselves, we are proud to bring their creative pieces into our stores so they can be enjoyed and discovered by our community.

We are proudly independent and proudly local.
