19 Sustainable Fashion Brands to Shop in Toronto

19 Sustainable Fashion Brands to Shop in Toronto

Looking for some great ethical and sustainable fashion and clothing brands in Toronto to shop?

Sustainability ain’t just a fad, y’all.

We all need to do our part in helping the environment, and buying clothing from more eco-friendly fashion brands is a great way to contribute to the sustainable fashion movement!

Sustainable fashion and clothing brands are showing up more and more in Toronto and around Canada, and it’s amazing to see.

Part of being more sustainable is buying less, and I’m in no way encouraging going on any shopping sprees.

Buying high-quality, well-made pieces that’ll last you for years (or even forever) is the goal!

Here are some incredible sustainable fashion and clothing brands you can shop in Toronto.

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

Sustainable fashion brands in Toronto

Fall outfit (Kotn rugby shirt, Levi's 501 mid thigh denim shorts) in Toronto


Kotn is one of my favourite sustainable fashion brands in Toronto.

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

The Kotn team is very involved and transparent in the entire process of production, and they’re working to get 100% of their cotton to be certified organic in the next 5 years.

They also work with a local NGO to help fund schools in the communities where their farmers work, so their children can have access to safe and quality education.

Kotn is just such a great brand with a great story, and I had the pleasure of meeting one of the founders several years ago!

My picks: Band Tee ($35 CAD), Terry Crew ($75 CAD), Terry Sweatshorts ($60 CAD), Culotte Trousers ($98 CAD)

LOCATION: 754 Queen St. West, Toronto, ON

Uncle Studios

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

If you like Allegra’s style, you’ll definitely like 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!

My picks: Cropped Tank ($42 USD), Muscle Tank ($48 USD)

Horses Atelier in Toronto

Horses Atelier

Horses Atelier makes gorgeous feminine pieces that are handmade in Toronto using natural fabrics sourced from family-owned mills in Italy and Japan.

Their jumpsuits are absolutely amazing, but all their pieces are stunning.

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

My picks: Belted Field Suit ($415 CAD)

LOCATION: 198 Walnut Ave, Toronto, ON

La Leur

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.

Since they’re a bit newer, they don’t have a large selection of pieces yet, but their current selection is stunning!

Their packaging is 100% compostable and zero-waste, which is really nice!

They also donate 2% of their profits each year to charitable causes, which I think is amazing.

My picks: Mimi Bustier ($145 CAD), Juliette Skirt ($129 CAD), Ella Pant ($259 CAD)

Hoi Bo clothing store in Toronto

Hoi Bo

Hoi Bo makes basics with a unique twist, 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.

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

Their pieces are a little on the pricier side, but you can get 15% off your first order if you sign up for their newsletter.

My picks: The Moss ($138 CAD), The Crawford ($138 CAD), The Lawson ($92 CAD)



Ūnika offers both custom and pre-made swimwear pieces that are ethically made in Toronto using sustainable fabrics.

They have a lot of unique styles with ruffles, cutouts, and all sorts of fun stuff.

Their swimsuits are made from a fabric called ECONYL, a nylon yarn made from fishing nets, plastic scraps, and fabric scraps from landfills and oceans.

An awesome thing about ECONYL is that it can be recycled infinitely without losing its quality, so it can constantly be recycled and reused!

You can find Ūnika’s storefront in Toronto’s Leslieville neighbourhood.

LOCATION: 260 Carlaw Ave Unit 210, Toronto, ON

The Saltwater Collective ethically makes their swimsuits here in Toronto, also exclusively using ECONYL as a fabric.

They create elevated basics that you can mix and match to highlight your fave parts of your body.

You can shop by colour on their website and see all the styles they have for each one!

While sustainable swimwear can be a bit more expensive, they’re pieces you can wear forever, so it’s worth investing in good quality pieces.
