Our garments are made at a factory here in Vancouver, BC.
Slate chooses 100% Linen - not only because we love the natural textures and properties of the fabric, but also because Linen is a strong, more sustainable fabric option. Its nature is breathable and durable, and will become softer and more pliable as you wear and wash it. Linen is a cellulose fibre, made from Flax plants, which require little water and pesticides to grow, making it a desirable and conscious fabric in fashion.
We want to ensure that not only are your clothes responsibly made, but that we are also reducing waste upon delivery. At Slate, we are proud to use low emission shipping methods and package your orders in biodegradable and/or recycled paper packaging! Throw the biodegradable bag in your compost for it to biodegrade in 3-6 months and recycle the paper mailer.
