Our Mission

We are always learning and building on what it takes to make a quality garment for a diverse range of people while sticking to our strong vision for a sustainable and progressive society. We work on a slower fashion development model releasing ethically and sustainably produced micro collections of our seasonal basics. 

The majority of our clothing is produced in Lima, Peru. We have partnered with Raintex - a small manufacturer based in Lima. We work with this manufacturer for their fair and ethical working conditions as well as their commitment to providing a transparent and short supply chain. 

Moving forward in 2020, we will be working with organic textile company Bergman Rivera, the first in Latin America to be certified under G.O.T.S (Global Organic Textile Standard), ensuring organic traceability from farm to yarn, as well a standard of fair treatment to every person involved in their production chain. Bergman Rivera is certified organic through the USDA and European Union as well as being Fair Trade certified.


OUR SUPPLY CHAIN

Our manufacturer receives Bergman Rivera's yarns from their farm near Lima. They develop and produce our fabrics at their facility. The finished garments are then sent directly to Canada - passing from Montreal or Toronto to their final destination in Halifax. 

 

By working in Peru, we are supporting a country that is engaging in fair and transparent government controlled regulations for workers rights. We are supporting women technicians, fair wages, and developing more earth-friendly fabrications and innovations as well as shortening our supply chain.


We also make small runs of clothing here in Nova Scotia where we live. By collaborating with designers and sewers in our immediate area our profits cycle back into our communities therefore helping our local economy.
