Our name was crafted so that it can be said and read internationally, but mostly for our francophone and anglophone communities.
Milkweed is "Asclépiade" in french. We wanted our brand name to be about "L'Asclépiade" without sounding corny or simply too obvious. So, we decided to take the first two syllables "L'AS-CLÉ" and make sure everybody could pronounce it right by calling ourselves "LAS-CLAY".
We love our French-Canadian / Quebecer culture and heritage, and so we thought Lasclay was the perfect bridge between our origins and our love for milkweed.
