Our goal is to provide top quality garments in construction and design while maintaining a low carbon footprint. All supplies used in garment construction are sourced through local companies to reduce transportation emissions. All garments are designed and locally manufactured in Vancouver, BC. Product packaging is with zero plastic waste.
In store we use paper shopping bags that are made with 100% recycled paper (93-95% post-consumer and 3-5% post-industrial fibers) and water-based inks.
Online orders are shipped using compostable envelopes or recycled shipping boxes.
Our 3000 sq ft studiotique, is fully lit with LED lighting. The building uses hot water heating. We have a 5% wastage on fabric yield, which is below industry average and donate unused fabrics and scraps for resale or recycling.
