Direct from the maker to you. 

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.

*Note that this item is Pre-Order and expected to ship on Sept 24th.

The Women's Camel Overshirt is tailored to be slightly oversized in fit, ideal as a second layer for blustery days to block the cold, windy chill of the Pacific Northwest. Constructed here in our Victoria, BC factory it's finished with buttoned cuffs, a long-fit straight hem, side slits for mobility, and a yoke at the shoulders. This item uses Corozo buttons, made from the seeds of the tagua palm tree - chosen because they are natural, durable, and scratch-resistant alternatives to plastic. 
 
We selected camel wool for its sustainability and were intrigued to learn about its unique harvesting method - it's gathered by hand as part of the natural shedding process, literally falling off in handfuls when they are groomed. Milled into wool it is a very soft, insulating fabric that has longer fibers than sheep wool, which results in a more durable finished product that is also super fine and extremely soft.

With a fabric profile similar to wool, camel should be spot cleaned or taken to the dry cleaners. 

Model is 5'8" and wearing a size Small. 

Wool is highly durable and anti-microbial, meaning it really doesn't need to be cleaned. If you must clean it, here's how:

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

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.
