Everyone has their favorites brands which are strategically chosen for various reasons which can be directly related to the style of the products, the materials used or even their origin. More and more brands are choosing to use domestically sourced materials and fabrics in order to contribute to the growth of their country’s economy and eliminate any unnecessary pollutants.

Why Choose Canadian-Made Brands?

Choosing to produce with domestically sourced materials and fabrics is not only beneficial to the growth of a country’s economy, but for the environment as well. When you choose to use materials and fabrics that are made within your country, they do not have to travel long distances to be used for production. This eliminates unnecessary travel expenses and reduces the carbon footprint made by a particular company. If you think of how many materials and fabrics are shipped daily and transported by planes and trucks and other modes of transportation, the carbon footprint becomes quite large.

For this, we are proud to carry a wide selection of brands that are produced right here in Canada and made with domestically sourced materials and fabrics. The brands include a variety of products but with the approaching winter, we are focusing on the brands carrying winter coats so those still searching for the ideal winter coat can choose a Canadian-made coat this season.

Brands We Carry that Are Made in Canada

Some people will be extremely thrilled to see their favourite brand or the winter coat they already own is produced here in Canada. Others may be pleasantly surprised and find a new reason to support a new brand they have just discovered.
