At Jennifer Fukushima, we make original clothing for unique women who want to feel like themselves at work and in play. We want to you to feel excited about getting dressed for work in the morning. We want you to be your best self!
But our mission is two fold. We create clothing with a conscience so that you can feel good about your purchase. All clothes are created locally in Canada by us and other local businesses. Great care is taken during each step of the process from design to materials selection through to construction so that each garment can be enjoyed for multiple seasons so that you don't have to say goodbye to your favourite sweater.
We source our fabrics from across the globe, giving special preference to sustainably grown and manufactured goods whenever possible. Natural fibres that come from the Earth are selected for their comfort, quality and resource renewability. Select synthetics are used sparingly to provide increased strength and durability to natural fibres. Our goal is to operate a zero waste environment. Anything we cannot use is shared with local crafters and charities. If you or someone you know would like to access fabrics from our waste stream, and you are able to come visit us for a local pick up (Toronto, Canada), please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
