Our Story

Established in 1995, founders of SBO Distributors Ltd. (SWISSBO), Diana and Thomas set out on a journey to make beautifully designed and made home décor, gifts, and accessories available to Canadians. From classic iconic European designs to contemporary Red Dot Design Award winners, Diana and Thomas have successfully expanded brand awareness and distributions across Canada for various established or emerging brands in different categories.

In 2022, the next chapter of Diana and Thomas’ story unfolds with STORIES By SWISSBO. Located in the vibrant Shipyards District of North Vancouver, Stories is a lifestyle gift boutique which offers unique and sustainable products that meet your personal & home accessory, and gifting giving needs.

STORIES By SWISSBO products are curated for innovative design and manufacturing. They address the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals #2 (Zero Hunger), #4 (Quality Education), #5 (Gender Equality), #8 (Decent Work & Economic Growth) and #12 (Responsible Consumption and Manufacturing). They are B Corp products. They are award winning products. They are products made locally. They are products born from the imaginations of their innovators. They are products with stories…

STORIES By SWISSBO is retail with purpose. Diana and Thomas hope you will join the STORIES community and make responsible gifting your language of love. We look forward to serving you both online and in person.
