Welcome to our factory, where we value connection over consumption.

A new way of manufacturing clothing that you can see with your own eyes: connecting customers to makers.

Full circle.

We see possibility here.

A start-to-finish process in one space: dream, ideate, design, sample, produce, ship (or be picked up by you from our on-site shoppable showroom). Plus repairs to extend the longevity of your gear, so you can opt-in to fewer pieces, more favourites for life.

First worn in the Arctic, Anoraks have an adventure-worthy history behind them. Ours are made at the ecologyst factory in Victoria, B.C. and designed from one of our favorite weatherproof fabrics - organic cotton Ventile. It's highly durable but 100% natural, highly breathable, and water repellent due to its dense, long fiber weave. 

This pull-on style with quarter-zip was put to the test in the Pacific North West, soggily known as the 'wet' coast. From blustery fog mornings to mid-afternoon sun showers, the Anorak will keep you dry. Features a front Velcro flap access pocket, adjustable hood, Velcro cuff adjustment tabs, and a waist elastic toggle for an adjustable fit.

Female model is 5'6" and wears size S (Navy).
Female model is 5'8" and wears size XS (Cinnamon).
Male model is 6’4” and wears size XL (Yellow).
Male model is 6’1” and wears size M (Cinnamon).
The Anorak is made to be worn slightly oversized and boxy.

Our outerwear is highly durable and great for braving nature's elements. If you need to clean an outerwear item, here's how:

  • Spot clean or eco-dry clean only
  • Do not machine wash or dry

Great gift

Son-in-law loved it! Perfect for outdoor adventures while staying dry. Best thing is it’s locally made and great quality. Support your local businesses!

I love it

I waited and waited for this jacket to be back in stock. I fell in love as soon as I saw it, even though I couldn’t choose between yellow or dark. I went with dark because I have too many funky coloured pants to wear the yellow all the time. I’ve worn it so much and gotten so many compliments on it. This morning I trudged through the snow with a sweater underneath and I felt warm and dry. Also, it’s almost impossible for me to find jackets with long enough sleeves for my arms, and this one fits perfect. Amazing!

Meet our makers.

Our talented makers are compensated fairly for their expert craftsmanship. 

They make at least a family living wage. Rejecting the status quo of unethically low, unlivable wages often found in factories overseas.
