A quick overview of the most important aspects of my garments:
- Quality in the comfort and printing of the design
- Ethically sourced
- Environmentally conscious production
I design and screen print all of the clothing I sell. I source the blank garments from a couple of different places. All of the hoodies I buy are made in Canada at Jerico. I really love these hoodies because they are soft and comfortable and have a nice weight to them.
Jerico is a socially conscious company
"...we believe in the ethics of fair labour and the quality of our product. 100% Canadian and sweatshop free, Jerico is proud to continuously offer authentic Canadian apparel."
The majority of the other blank clothing I buy (t-shirts in unisex and women's) is from Bella and Canvas based in the USA. Bella and Canvas offers top of the line products that I am proud to offer in my shop. Quality and comfort are extremely important to me. Bella and Canvas is also an environmentally conscious company and produce as little waste as possible.
By using newer, more efficient dye machines, we use 7x less water than the average for clothing manufacturers, saving 24 million gallons a week. Any water we do use goes through a filtration system that allows it to be recycled.
We are a green company through and through - taking every opportunity we can to reduce our co2 emissions. If you take a quick tour around our headquarters you'll find we use solar energy to power our sewing and cutting facilities, motion-sensor LED lighting and skylights throughout each building, and electric car charging stations to encourage employees to go green.
VIRTUALLY ZERO WASTE
Our manufacturing facilities and LA Headquarters produce almost no landfill because we recycle pretty much everything that can't be turned into a tee. We've optimized our cutting to reduce plastic use, and excess fabric is recycled into a number of things like baby bibs or stuffing for upholstery. Let nothing go to waste!
