Canadian sustainable clothing brand ecologyst recently unveiled its newest state-of-the-art facility, housed inside a former heritage building in Victoria, B.C. Founded in 2013, the company prides itself on creating clothing that is environmentally friendly and ethically made, using 100% all natural fibres and creating each piece locally through a direct to consumer business model.
A new "4,500 square-foot space has been reimagined by progressive architecture and interiors studio, Colin Harper Architect, with the support of local tradespeople," bringing ecologyst’s vision to life. The brand's "mission with the new facility is to support the expansion of their local production, while creating an innovative and inspiring space that fosters connection overconsumption."
Featuring no use of plastics -- not even recyclable varieties -- ecologyst aims to protect its customer and the planet while also ensuring its employees are paid fair wages. The brand tackles one of the fashion industry's largest environmental challenges, clothing waste, by focusing on small-batch production and offers a lifetime guarantee on products that includes repairs when needed.
Moreover, ecologyst offers a wide selection of versatile pieces for men and women including best-sellers like its organic cotton Carefree Tee, The Puffy Jacket in waxed cotton and more, with each piece designed to be biodegradable even down to the tags and trim.
