Rugby shirt from Kotn.


Kotn is an amazing ethical and sustainable clothing brand based out of Toronto.

They make everyday minimal basics using ethically-produced Egyptian cotton, perfect for keeping in your capsule wardrobe.

They’re also a Certified B Corporation, which basically means they do good for the world, including taking care of their workers and helping the environment.

They started out in 2015, and they’ve since built 7 new schools in Egypt where their cotton is farmed!

I love this basic white tee, this cute knit crop tank, these chic wide leg trousers, and this elegant ribbed midi dress.

I also love that Kotn’s pieces are pretty affordable, especially for a sustainable clothing brand.

Their pieces are actually pretty affordable for a sustainable fashion brand, and they also have great sales.

I adore this classic tee, this pink fleece pullover, and these balloon fit trousers.

They started out back in 2012, and actually used to have a clothing subscription service that you might remember if you were shopping from them back then!

Uncle Studios

You may have heard of Uncle Studios before, but this Toronto-based sustainable fashion brand is co-founded by one of my fave Toronto influencers, Allegra Shaw.

If you like Allegra’s style, you’ll definitely love the pieces they have on their website.

All their clothes are made with sustainable, recycled, or deadstock fabrics.

If you don’t know what deadstock fabric is, it’s leftover fabric from other brands that typically would have gone into the landfill.

Uncle also has a cool feature on their site that shows their total environmental impact!

They have a lot of quality basics like this muscle tank and this basic tee.

You’ll also find some trendy pieces like this cool trench coat, this pretty ruched top, and these staple linen shorts.

Hoi Bo clothing store in Toronto

Hoi Bo

Hoi Bo makes basics with a unique twist at their Toronto studio, and I love the modest and oversized style of their pieces.

They use timeless colours that you can literally wear forever without them ever going out of style.

They have clothing, bags, and jewelry that are all handmade in their studio and retail store in the Distillery District.

I adore this supima cotton tee, these cotton wide leg pants, and this overcoat.

If you’re looking for more cool spots in the Distillery District neighbourhood, I’ve got blog posts on the best things to do and the best restaurants to visit!

Tentree is another amazing B Corp, and they’re a sustainable fashion brand based out of Vancouver.

Their clothing is designed in Canada and ethically manufactured in factories around the world.

They use sustainable materials and methods to produce their clothing, and they plant 10 trees with every purchase!

They’ve planted over 60 million trees so far, and they have a goal of planting 1 billion trees before 2030.

I adore this oversized hoodie, these wide leg sweatpants, and this turtleneck sweater dress.


This British Columbia-based clothing brand has been all about using natural fibres and manufacturing in Canada since they started out.

They now also source recycled post-consumer materials from landfills!

ANIÁN makes well-constructed and timeless pieces for your wardrobe, so you can look good and know that you’re doing good by supporting the environment.

They make both men’s and women’s clothing, and their style is very laid back and ~west coast~.

Their wool pieces are especially nice (I adore the Melton wool shirt jacket), and Adam is a huge fan of the brand!

Since they are a sustainable fashion brand, they don’t have a huge selection of pieces, but they have beautiful and well-made clothing.

Another cool thing they offer is their Resell program, where you can resell your preloved ANIÁN garments to them and receive store credit!

The Anorak Jacket from Ecologyst, a Vancouver-based sustainable clothing brand
The Anorak Jacket from Ecologyst.


Ecologyst is another incredible British Columbia-based outdoor brand that makes their products in Canada.

They make fewer products in small collections to reduce waste, and they use sustainable and biodegradable materials like organic cotton, merino wool, and tencel.

ll of their pieces are made in North America and at their local factory in Victoria.

Their pieces are also guaranteed for life, which means they’ll fix your pieces for free if they get ripped or damaged!

1% of purchases also goes towards preservation and restoration of the planet, which is really cool.

Fun fact: they actually started off as a surfboard company!


A really cool thing about Muttonhead is that all their pieces are designed to be completely unisex.

All of Muttonhead’s pieces are made in Canada (specifically Toronto), and their crewnecks and sweatpants are ethically made in Toronto!

A lot of their clothing is made up of cozy basics, and they also offer some Naked & Famous button-ups and denim.

I adore this fleece zip-up, which also comes with matching sweatpants.

I also love this colourful fleece zip-up and this comfy pullover hoodie.

Horses Atelier in Toronto

Horses Atelier

Horses Atelier makes gorgeous feminine pieces that are all ethically and sustainably handmade in Toronto.

They use natural fabrics sourced from family-owned mills in Italy and Japan.

Their jumpsuits are absolutely amazing (I love the Field suit), but all their pieces are stunning.

I adore their pretty Riviera blouse, their staple Mona trench coat, and their chic high-waisted trousers.

Their flagship store is located around the corner from Trinity Bellwoods Park.

Also something fun about the brand: it was started by two best friends!

La Leur makes gorgeous and sustainable clothing here in Toronto, and if you’re a fan of brands like Aritzia, you’ll love La Leur’s pieces.

They source their eco-friendly fabrics from around the world, and their clothing is handmade in Toronto.

All of their garments are made in small factories in Vancouver, and it’s made in small batches of 40 to 200 units.

Since they produce pieces in small batches and they sell imperfect pieces at sample sales, they’re completely overstock free (which means they don’t keep extra stock!)

I adore the Milos dress, the Pierrot pants, and the Aura pants.


I’m obsessed with the romantic and feminine vibes of Ovate’s clothing.

Ovate’s pieces are all handcrafted using sustainable materials by their small team in Montreal.

I love the Hemlock dress and the Lisbeth dress, both of which give all the cottagecore vibes.

The Marin linen trousers and Ursula skirt are also both really beautiful.

Something to also note is that all the prices on their site are listed in USD as opposed to CAD!

Founder Tracy Fillion produces all of We Are Stories’ small-batch pieces at her home studio near Nelson, BC.

Most of We Are Stories’ pieces are made to order, and you can choose from a variety of fabrics and colourways for a lot of the pieces on their site!
