When asked if we would ever have our clothing made overseas, we categorically said no. In the beginning, Jennifer made everything by hand in the back of her shop, loving the contact with clients and refining her skills. Now that the business has grown, we’re proud to say that Jennifer Glasgow clothing is still made right here in Montreal! Our close knit circle of factories are all woman-owned. Chenda, Sina and Miu, with their teams, have produced every stitch for over 10 years. Keeping our production in Canada helps us control the quality of our goods and reduces our carbon footprint.

From the seed preparation which is natural and untreated with pesticides, to soil conservation and harvesting, the farming of organic cotton ensures the land and the people working it, are healthier and happier.  Conventional cotton is one of the most chemically insensitive as classified by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Organic cotton is not exposed to the fibre weakening chemicals that conventional cotton endures therefore it should outlast a regular cotton item.

Lyocell (also known as Tencel) is a sustainable fiber, regenerated from wood cellulose. It uses a closed loop system of production that has a minimal impact on the environment. Lyocell is wrinkle resistant, simulates silk, suede or leather to touch.

Lyocell helps regulate body temperature and has inherent anti-bacterial properties which allows garments to stay odour-free for longer and allows for multiple wears before each wash.

Lyocell fabric is extremely soft, anti-static and anti-bacterial. When blended with other fibers, it increases their tenacity and durability. In addition, it is biodegradable and requires less dye than cotton.
