Meet The Makers
That’s a gooooood question. Glad you’re here. Sit your booty down for a few minutes & let’s get to the grind.
Tizz & Tonic is an independent women's intimates brand that’s all about kicking the norms (quite literally) in the tush. Our beat is about combining bold colours with peppy prints so that you can wear quality intimates that make you feel happy. Every. Single. Day. Yay.
Oh yeah, and all of our cotton is certified organic.
We design basics that aren’t boring and offer our intimates at legit prices because we want eco-options to be your very first option.
Our intimates are made by the two of us, a Canadian sister duo hustlin’ in the North of Germany. We make our own patterns, source our good-good cottons, design, cut, sew, ship & chat about girlie things (aka boobs) with the lovely you. Tizz & Tonic is for women by women. We’re taking it all on to build up the sweetest undie emporium the world has ever seen.
Because you know what they say: the sexiest thing a women can wear is her smile, the second sexiest thing are banana printed undies.
This is Imke. She hustles full-time on the brand. She’s the designer, pattern-maker, seamstress, the voice & manager of the social network & online marketing platforms.
When Imke was in her teens she owned a wacky female clothing brand named Johnnywishes in Elora, Ontario, but closed in 2010 in order to move to Toronto to pursue her studies in Fashion Techniques & Design. She graduated from George Brown in 2012 with a focus on lingerie & since has had two runway shows at Toronto’s Alternative Fashion Week.
After moving to Germany & gallivanting around Europe for a couple of years, she decided it was time to get back to the grind and Tizz & Tonic was opened in March 2017.
Meet Yanna. Also known as Yonks. She works on the brand full-time & manages the nitty gritty behind-the-scenes aspects of a small startup. She is the captain of material sourcing, SEO, communications & fabric cutting.
Yanna graduated from Dalhousie University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She had a focus on sustainability, spent part of her university career in Austin TX, and completed her last year in Spain. In her free time she likes to travel and hunt for local street art murals.
She is an energetic 30 year old, she's lived in four different countries, thinks animals are awesome & has a love for all things nacho flavoured.
This is Elisabetta. Born and raised in Italy, fashion has been her greatest passion since childhood which is why she decided to attend the Accademia del Lusso for her studies, where she was trained as a designer and fashion tailor.

Her tasks include product development and design, cutting and sewing.
