Materials

We want you to feel like your best self when you slip on a FL garment - both inside and out. That's why we choose natural, sustainable and soft fabrics. It feels great wearing something soft, but it feels even better when that soft fabric is also environmentally friendly. Many of our fabrics are organic and locally milled in Toronto. You can read more about our core fabrics here. The little details are important too. All of our labels and tags are made in Canada, and all of our packaging and marketing materials are made in North America and from recycled materials. If there is a better, more environmentally friendly material, we're on it.

Factories

Every Free Label garment is cut and sewn in Canada. This is a conscious choice. While supporting the local economy is hugely important to us, the primary reason we choose to produce locally in Toronto and Vancouver is that we can ensure our garments are made by happy hands.

Our Vancouver factories are all within a 10 minute drive of our home, and our Toronto factories are within a 20 minute drive of the house Jess grew up in. When we go into production we don't send our patterns overseas and cross our fingers. We pass our patterns and fabric off by hand, visit our factories often, get to know the workers who make our clothes, and verify that they work in a clean and safe place. We build relationships. And it is what makes the difference.
