Ethical & Just-In-Time Manufacturing
Making strides to a circular fashion model means that we work smarter. That’s why in late 2020 we adopted a Just-In-Time manufacturing philosophy. It just made sense.
MADE HERE- Wpg, MB
Our production process takes place entirely in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, without any offshoring or outsourcing of sewing labor.
Anne, our founder, takes pride in owning our 100% vertical sewing and textile manufacturer.
Our ownership of the manufacturer allows us to deliver top-quality products to you and your loved ones while creating jobs that support our local economy.
Instead, we create small batches that are tailored to meet individual orders. As a completely vertical company, we are capable of providing a high degree of customization. We maintain minimal inventory and do not have large warehouses filled with unsold clothing that ultimately ends up in landfills.
We only produce garments that are necessary, ensuring that we minimize storage expenses and gain a better comprehension of our supply chain. This approach to manufacturing also fosters stronger relationships with both our suppliers and customers, often referred to as "slow fashion".
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
By having a link in our supply chain, we can guarantee:
✓ Excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail
✓ Customer engagement in the entire production process
✓ Personal customization & alterations on site
✓ Quality control and fulfillment done in real-time
We champion ethical employment and equal opportunities, for all.
At the core of our values are inclusivity, justice, and honesty. We strongly believe that jobs ought to empower communities, rather than oppress them.
To achieve this, we collaborate with Fair Trade Certified factories that offer secure working conditions, fair wages, and an eco-friendly atmosphere that is gentle to our planet and our employees.
Our clothing is entirely produced in our Winnipeg factory, where skilled dressmakers and seamstresses create each item.
Innovated and Designed in Winnipeg, Manitoba
Where conscious design and conscious consumption meet. We start with comfort and versatility—and end with pieces that are good for those who wear them and good for the planet we live on.
We acknowledge with respect and gratitude that our work takes place (and our products are made) on ancestral lands, Treaty 1 territory, traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
Consciously Milled And Dyed in Ontario
Our knits are completely unique to Anne Mulaire. Because our fabric is completely exclusive to our brand, we feel responsible for its quality and impact on our planet.
Rest assured that our fabrics are milled and knitted in Ontario by a company that adheres strictly to the Oeko Tex Standard which ensures materials are free of hazardous chemicals. The bamboo, organic cotton, hemp, Sorona® and TENCEL™ used in our clothing are grown without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. We’re not only eco-friendly but eco-efficient.
We are Indigenous-owned and Richly Inspired.
Anne Mulaire is located in Treaty 1 territory, the ancestral and traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe peoples. We acknowledge and value that we live and work in the territories of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Dakota, Dene, Metis, and Oji-Cree Nations.
Richly inspired by Anne Mulaire’s Anishinaabe/French Métis héritage, our prints are handcrafted by our Indigenous Métis Elder, David Albert, Andréanne’s father. Read more about his work and the story behind our one-of-a-kind prints.
