About us

Made using methods
that minimize impact on our planet.

The decisions made in the fashion industry have a huge impact on people and the planet. Faced with the irrevocable effects of climate change and poor conditions for garment factory workers around the world, we fully recognize the urgency to do our part. This is why we are committed to minimizing our impact by prioritizing recycled fabrics and responsible practices throughout our supply chain to make quality clothing that lasts.

Since 2017, we’ve significantly increased the percentage of minimal impact products through the careful sourcing and use of eco-conscious materials and methods. And we’re only getting started.

Packaging

Packaging is, unfortunately, a necessary part of any business like ours. They’re made to protect products as they get tossed around in transit or carried around town in busy customers’ hands. Until better solutions come along, we remain diligent in sourcing materials as conscientiously as we can.

Stores

Our stores are built conscientiously in partnership with Canadian artisans, using recycled materials and creating minimal waste. When it comes to updating and renovating existing stores, we choose to make as few modifications as possible to the existing space, always reusing everything we can.

Understanding that each community is unique, every one of our stores is conceived with each neighbourhood in mind.

Community

Dedicated to inclusion

We’re a group of over 300 people from over 20 different countries. We speak at least 8 different languages and while we may not agree on everything (we’re Canadian; we’ll never agree on hockey), we stand together on what’s important.

We are firm believers in equality and investing in the community. With that in mind, we have created charitable platforms that leverage our resources and reach to affect positive change.
Let’s give a shi(r)t
We’ve partnered with grassroots nonprofits across the country who work to divert tonnes of textiles from landfills, ensuring they are redistributed to help those in need.

And*
Each garment was made in collaboration with Montreal’s Petites-Mains, an organization that helps women in need break out of social isolation, learn a trade, and integrate into the workforce in order to live with dignity.
