    Good for Sunday would be a great one to add to this list that I found recently! They make everything in Toronto, use sustainable materials like bamboo and organic cotton, are women-owned, have plus sizes up to 3XL, and neutralize all their carbon emissions through reforestation projects. I have a few of their pieces and I’m super happy with them.

    Fantastic list! We’d love to be added to it – our business is Kindred Coast – based on Vancouver island, and all our clothing is cut, sewn and printed here in Canada. We only use sustainable fabrics as well 😌 we offer great classic printed tees for men and women, plus lots more 💛

    May I also suggest Lennard Taylor from Winnipeg? https://lennardtaylor.com/

    All items are made in Winnipeg, if an item no longer fits/rips/stained, Lennard will make it into something else for you. When it’s no longer able to be made into something else, you can return it and he will incorporate it into his art pieces.

    Hello lovely My Green Closet people! I’ve been a watcher on youtube for a couple years, but first time commenter.*blush* I like shopping Canadian made so I just have a few possible additions, if you like and can muster the will to edit this for the 40th time. Hope something in this helps someone! I had to double space to make it legible, sorry.

    Erdaine – women’s merino knitwear, made in Canada

    Linen Ladder – Oeko-tex certified linen clothing and accessories. I ordered a few months ago and the clothing arrived with no plastic packaging except for the outside mailer. I think the quality is really good, for the little my ‘random person on the internet’ opinion is worth! Not labelled plus size, but quite loose cuts. Made in Canada, sustainable materials.

    Econica – Women’s wear, accessories and lingerie made of cashmere, bamboo and organic cotton. Made in Canada, sustainable materials, plus sizes.

    Nights in White Flannel – Cottage industry making flannel and cotton pajamas for all ages. Made in Canada, plus sizes.

    Kamiks – Shoes and boots, made exclusively in Canada and US. Offer rubber boot recycling. Made in Canada, low waste initiatives.

    Sabrina Butterfly – Womenswear made in house in AB, carries jewellery and socks made in Canada, US and Italy. Made in Canada

    Salts and West – Bamboo womenswear and underwear. Made in Canada.

    George C Kirk’s – Moccasins and other leather goods. Made in Canada.

    Whiteout Workshop – Silkscreened lothing and accessories, Made in Canada.

    Jerico – Custom t shirts. Made in Canada.

    Sea of Wolves – Stretchy silkscreened womenswear. Some fabrics Oeko Tex certified. Made in Canada.

    Victoriana Imports – Organic cotton nightdresses. Sustainable materials.

    Heather Case – Mostly linen womenswear. Made in Canada.

    Manitobah Mukluks – Indigenous owned leather footwear company. Have made in Canada styles.

    Little Deer Handmade – Women’s and girls’ clothes, mostly linen. Some fabrics OekoTex certified. Made in Canada.

    Hides in Hand – Leather goods, work exclusively with Canadian leather including wildcaught deer and moosehide. Definitely -not- vegan, but Made in Canada. I hope that’s okay.

    Thank you to anyone who managed to get through this partial encyclopedia of a comment. I hope you’re doing well!

    It would be great to have information as to where the materials including raw materials are not sourced from countries using forced labour as an example.

    • Verena Erin
      | Reply

      The important this is not avoiding certain countries (forced labour unfortunately happens everywhere, including Canadian and US factories), but hopefully buying from brands you trust are ethically sourcing and fairly paying everyone in their supply chain. The best thing to do to try and ensure this is ask questions about their material sourcing and manufacturing and see how transparent the brand is willing to be!

    Great list – but, I have to say that I am going a little stir crazy. I need clothes for a 12-year-old boy. So many places to shop for women’s, men’s and baby clothes. Most sites have kid’s clothing sizes that only go up to toddler sizes or, if you’re lucky, size 6/7. Any suggestion for a 12-year-old?

    A wonderful store that focuses on Canadian-made clothing and accessories is Victoire. They have closed their Ossington location in Toronto but still have a brick and mortar in Ottawa, and an excellent online store.
