Hello! My name is Taylor Trudeau. The owner, founder and creative behind Au Naturale. Beside me is my daughter; the reason Au Naturale exists today.
Au Naturale was established in Winnipeg, Manitoba at the beginning of 2021, shortly after my daughters arrival to the world. At the time we were experiencing the biggest pandemic our generation has ever seen. Au Naturale was created as an outlet to exercise my creative juices in design and fashion while being a new mother during lockdown.
My main goal was to create inclusive pieces for everyone. To create high quality, yet affordable pieces. To create a space for all shapes, sizes, genders, and ethnicities. To create pieces that you can feel your best in. I've always believed that the best version of yourself is the one you were born to be. The organic you. The 'Au Naturale you.
"Au Naturale is a space for all shapes, sizes, genders, and ethnicities. The best version of yourself is the version you were meant to be. The organic you. The 'Au Naturale' you."

Meet the Founder
What does 'Au Naturale' mean anyway?
Au Naturale in french stands for all natural. Otherwise, being in a 'natural state'. Which goes back to my beliefs that the best version of yourself is the version you were meant to be.
Design and fashion has always been a passion of mine but I have a bigger vision for Au Naturale. One day i hope to tie my love and passion for health and wellness into this brand and offer something more impactful than just jewelry and accessories.
Our materials are handcrafted in small batches by our team of artists in China, then mindfully designed and put together by hand in Winnipeg, Mb. Every piece is personally tested by myself, Taylor and a trusted group of individuals. We stand by the quality and worth of every single piece Au Naturale has to offer. Jewelry and design is just the beginning for Au Naturale.
Keeping retail shopping as sustainable as possible has always been important to me. Here at Au Naturale we practice sustainability in a few different ways.
We offer high quality pieces that, if taken care of properly will last you a lifetime. Lowering consumption rate by offering pieces you should only have to buy once.
Our packaging is 100% plastic-free, compostable, and can be up-cycled or reused.
