Quality matters to us, both in our clothes and in the lives of those who make them.

Our business was built on the concept of no compromises, and this extends to how and where our garments are created. We’re passionate about creating exceptionally versatile and sustainable designs using local, small-scale, artisanal production and earth-friendly fabrics.

Partnering with factories near our studio helps ensure product excellence and that our skilled workers have a safe and happy work environment, feel respected and are paid a fair wage, well above the fashion industry average. In addition to following the high labour standards of the Province of Ontario, we have each factory sign our Ethical Code of Conduct checklist, exceeding what’s required by law. Learn more here.

We advocate continuously for diversity and inclusion, both in and out of our business. We live our values and partner with those who do the same. Encircled spends at least 50% of non-labour expenses at local independent suppliers, which helps shrink our carbon footprint and grow our community.


We partner with the best. Local, high-quality makers who believe in making garments that last.
