Say hi to our Bib 👋
Inspired by summer picnics and Scandinavian school children, The Bib basically fuses all our favourite aesthetics into one delicious and versatile garment. The Bib is handsewn in Toronto with upcycled fabric in collaboration with local designer Madeleine Porter.
Available in multiple one-of-a-kind colourways.
The Holiday Collection is here.
"I wanted to create a collection that felt like a celebration, something full of colour and shine. And after this year, I felt I needed to give people something to treat themselves to.
The Holiday Collection is full of talismans to take into 2021 — reminders of beauty and power, jewels that will arm you for what's to come. I know I'm quite sentimental about jewellery but it has always been about more than the metal, the stones, or the design to me. It's about the story behind the purchase or the gift and how you carry that with you.
So on that, I'll let you imbue your own meaning to this collection. After all, that's the whole point."
-Founder and designer, Anna, on the Holiday Collection
An extension of the Neophyte aesthetic and an elevation of the creatives who inspire it: a curated collection of our favourite finds from indie designers and small brands. Another way to support our creative community while creating the one-stop-shop of our dreams.DISCOVER OUR FINDS

We never want to take ourselves too seriously, but we do know that every so often, people wear our products and feel more confident, more empowered when they go out into the world. We are so happy to introduce our line of nail polishes so that feeling can extend beyond your accessories. It's just the beginning of us spreading our ethos and making the world more colourful, one coat at a time.
Our Forever Ring gives back
We stand in solidarity and pledge our support to the fight against historic and systemic oppression for the rest of our brand’s lifetime. 15% of each Forever ring will go to organizations fighting racial injustice. The funds will be directed to a new organization (shared on Instagram) monthly, forever. Black Lives Matter, FOREVER.STAND WITH US
We believe that we’re all neophytes.
When we set out to create our brand, we knew that it would be as malleable as the people behind it.
Neophyte is a brand, a community, and an ethos. Through the power of aesthetics, we want to empower people to try something new and feel good doing it. Whether you’re new to a language, to home decor, or even to a job, Neophyte has the tools to promote the courage and creativity it takes to go out into the world and try.
What began as a side hustle selling hair accessories has become a constantly evolving, community-based project.
By supporting our company, you’re not only supporting the neophytes who run it but the women we strive to elevate in the process - inspiring creatives who deserve to be given a platform.
Our work is designed and made in Toronto by women, for everyone.
