AN ETHICAL APPROACH TO FASHION
All aleur garments are made locally in Montréal. Most pieces are made in our atelier 1619 Rue William, Griffentown, Montréal. If we receive large shop orders, we reach out to local artisans to take on some of our production. It's very important to us create more jobs and help revive the textile industry in our community.
We arrange and cut out pieces thoughtfully to create less waste. We use fabric scraps for alternative production like scrunchies or dustbags. Small batch production is an essential part in preventing overproduction waste. We release small collections so that each release is thoughtful and considerate of it's place in this world.
EXTENDED CLOTHING LIFE
We use reinforced stitching to make clothes stronger and last longer. If anything happens to your aleur garment, you can email us to repair and resend it to you.
A majority of our collections are made with natural materials. We love using organic cotton, linen, and silk.
We love sourcing deadstock/overstock fabrics to reduce textile waste. It also conserves energy and reduces the carbon footprint that would've been expended on producing new fabric.
