Where to Shop for Canadian Clothes

While most of the clothing from these companies may not have Canada on the front, you will be supporting Canadians businesses and manufacturers.

What better way to show your pride in Canada than to buy some awesome, often eco-friendly, Canadian made goods from Canadian companies.

Jerico

I am not sure whats not to like about this company. All clothing is knit, cut and sewn together in Toronto. This company specifically chose to have all of their manufacturing facilities in Toronto to reduce environmental impacts of transportation. This company has partnerships with Doctors Without Boarders, World Partnership Walk, and FOCUS Humanitarian Assistance.

Jerico uses bamboo in most of their clothing and organic cotton. Jerico states that they are strongly against the conditions many people face in other countries who are in the garment industry. Jerico states they pay their workers fair pay as well as benefits.

In my search for Canadian made clothing, I found this website. Here there is a list of Indigenous owned companies that produce some amazing pieces. I will point out one that stood out to me, but I would seriously suggest checking out the entire list. If you are worried about cultural appropriation, you can do some reading here to help educate yourself about the issue.

Education is key for combating Western cannibalization of traditions many do not understand.
