Our clothes are made of :

 

 

 

Viscose from Bamboo

Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world. Its cultivation requires no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Its production uses four times less water than cotton and is totally biodegradable. 

Despite sodium hydroxide, carbon disulfide and sulfuric acid required by the viscose transformation process. We believe it can be used responsibly and represents a scalable alternative to synthetic fibers and conventional cotton.

 

Eucalyptus

Eucalyptus (Lyocell fiber) fabric absorbs moisture and prevents the formation of bacteria. It is extremely gentle and suitable for sensitive skin. This is a 100% natural fiber extracted from eucalyptus wood from certified environmentally sustainable plantations located in Europe. The fiber production process is environmentally friendly at all levels. The products used are recycled for its transformation up to 99.7%.

Hemp

Hemp is much more resistant than cotton. It is hypoallergenic and non-irritating to the skin. In fact, hemp is one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics currently available. The plant is very naturally resistant to pests and growth requires little water. Hemp fabric has the distinction of “aging well”, in fact, the more you wear it, the softer it becomes.

Linen

Noble material, linen is an all natural fiber that requires no chemicals for growth or for his transformation. The fabric keeps us cool in summer and warm in the winter because it keeps the air in its fibers in fact a natural insulator. The linen cloth has a beneficial effect on sensitive skin. This is the most resistant fabric. It is not plush and not deformed. It softens with washing.

I am in charge of Sales and Marketing and am the client contact for sales. Basically, this involves selling our collections to shops every six months, developing new markets, and nurturing relationships with clients. I also respond to corporate requests, in which businesses ask us to sew garments bearing their logo. Those include Radio-Canada, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and some spas.

#IMadeYourClothes: Noëlline

I am responsible for the boutique adjoining our sewing shop, the online boutique, and inventory management. In Respecterre’s early days, we decided to open our own shop in the rural areas! This allows us to receive guests on the wonderful ecovillage site while working in the shop. Increasingly, people also like to buy online, so I work on the online boutique at the same time.

Currently I have two main roles: management of production and management of garment manufacturing contracts for other companies. We have our own clothing line (Respecterre) that we create, cut, sew and distribute. We also make corporate t-shirt or golf shirts for some companies (Musée des Beaux-Arts, Radio-Canada, Many other, etc.) Finally, our third category of production is what we do for other fashion companies that have similar values…
