120+ Canadian Slow Fashion Brands🍁

posted in brand roundups

Now more than ever, local businesses need our support!

Far too many Canadian businesses have been hard-hit by the pandemic and are struggling. Also, supporting small business has a beneficial ripple though our economy – a BC study found that local businesses recirculated 2.6x more revenue back into the economy compared to chains!

So if you’re looking to add some pieces to your wardrobe, shopping from Canadian clothing brands can not only give you beautiful, unique pieces but also support amazing independent fashion labels, and a Canadian made clothing industry. Plus most of these brands incorporate sustainability into their business and products so you’re making a kinder choice for the planet too. πŸ’š

I loved putting this list together and found some new brands I hope to support soon. I know you’ll discover some great Canadian slow fashion brands too! x

    This is such a great list! I’m finding a lot of companies selling underwear sell bralette but not a supportive bra. Does anyone have any suggestions for me??

    This is a fantastic list, thank you! I would suggest adding Smoking Lily, a personal favourite. Victoria based with a shop in Vancouver, they use sustainable fabrics and deadstock, design and sew everything themselves, and strive for a zero waste manufacturing process.
