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.

Hemp is a wonderfully durable and long lasting textile that was first woven over 10,000 years ago. It is very breathable and has UV resistance and anti-microbial characteristics. It resembles linen and is usually mixed with other fibres to soften and give it draping characteristics. It is an excellent crop for farmers too!  Needing far less water than cotton, almost no chemicals and much higher yields on less land, hemp has once again found its place in the textile landscape. In addition it blocks out weeds as it grows and can improve soil quality. 

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.
