Certified B Corp KOTN offers high-quality basics made from premium and traceable Egyptian cotton. They have styles for men as well. If you put their clothes in the dryer, take note that they will shrink 3-5%. Shop online or in a store in Toronto or Montreal.
Certified B Corporation Frank and Oak prioritizes using eco-conscious materials in their wearable pieces for men and women. They're available online and in brick-and-mortar locations across Canada so you can try the clothes on in person.
Beloved for their comfortable, multi-functional, and travel-friendly pieces, Encircled is also a Certified B Corp. Encircled's capsule wardrobe-friendly styles are 100% made in Toronto.
Conscious Montreal brand La Canadienne makes footwear that marries design, function, and ethics. From boots for surviving the harshest Canadienne weather to summer-friendly sandals, their shoes are made in Montreal by expert craftsmen. You can browse their footwear, as well as outerwear and accessories in stores as well.
If you're looking to add more colour and patterns to your wardrobe, check out Tamga Designs. This sustainable Canadian brand employs different ethical factories abroad. Their boho styles are popular for the summer.
I'm a fan of Eliza Faulkner's feminine tops and dresses. The fabrics woven are in Montreal and they use deadstock whenever possible. All manufacturing is done in Montreal by local sewers, cutters, and pattern makers. A lot of the dressy pieces are still machine washable, which is always a plus.
Montreal-based Rightful Owner's pieces are hand made by the designer. The styles are a bit avant-garde sometimes but still wearable. I love how girly and romantic this line feels.
