Connecting and building an international community

Emma Jacket in Black - Eco-friendly Hemp - Ethically Made in Canada
The best thing about being an online company is the ease that we're able to connect, communicate and partner with people from all over the world. The sustainable fashion community is growing in exciting ways and it's been a pleasure and a privilege to be able to contribute in any way that we can.
Over the past few months, we've been invited to participate in a number of educational projects through universities in California, Ireland, New Zealand and Canada. We've also had opportunity to collaborate with several writers and activists in the ethical fashion community. 
It's been fascinating to learn from others' histories and backgrounds. We all have our own reasons for joining this sustainable fashion crusade and there are so many incredibly creative ways that people are tackling the issues related to fashion and its impact on our planet and our societies. 
These beautiful shots are the result of a connection made with UK vegan Instagram blogger, Catherine Kendall, who promotes cruelty-free living through fashion and food. She's wearing our Emma Jacket in Black, made from a hemp and lyocell blended fabric that has been custom woven and dyed for our company.
We are proud to say that all of our products are made with a minimum of 55% hemp content. We founded our company based on the belief that vegetable-based fabrics are the best choice for our planet. Going all the way to vegan may be in our future.
