We're a design company; a collective of designers, engineers
and connectors bound by our pursuit of garment innovation.
Our clients are our investors, as part of our profits are
re-routed into research and development.
Okakie | Húgákiyé | means 'to paddle'
in Dene First Nations and represents our
commitment to the journey ahead.
We're dedicated to the research and development of garment manufacturing innovations. Our focus is to invest in and commit to our ideals of waste reduction and sustainability in the apparel industry.
We understand the need to reduce waste yet the desire to evolve your wardrobe season after season. The rest of our collection is designed with versatility and transformability in mind.
Our designs are made in small batches by our seamstresses in Canada and Saigon. We also partner with family owned manufacturers in the USA that have been screened for ethical working conditions.
