Too soon?! We disagree. It's never to soon to get excited about a new garment, winter outerwear included. Especially when you discover the garment has been manufactured in Canada, (Oakville, Ontario to be specific), made from the finest, high-quality materials, and hands down looks really, really good.
Introducing The Wild North, a Canadian brand run by a group of Toronto-based friends and families who are winter outdoor enthusiasts and long-time experts in apparel design and manufacturing. The Wild North produces classically styled, high-fill-power goose and duck down apparel for men and women. Specializing in quilted details and removable pieces, each jacket can be worn with maximum versatility. The simple colour pallet reflects a modest and timeless approach to style, leaving focus to be on function and warmth.
The Wild North sources most of their materials right here in Canada. They believe strongly in living in harmony with the environment and are committed to building and supporting sustainable communities, specifically in northern Canada. The Wild North is a key partner for Iqaluit Community Tukisigiarvik Society in Iqaluit, Northwest Territories. This community service centre develops and implements a broad range of services including culturally appropriate counseling, healing, support and skill development programs for disadvantaged and marginalized individuals and families. The Wild North is highly involved in supporting ICTS through their annual sponsorship and profit contribution program (Land Skills Programs). By giving back to the communities who represent the founding identity of our country, The Wild North aims to better the future for all Canadians.
Within the fine details, the classic styling and their approach to better business and production practices, The Wild North is a true Canadian company.
Meet the fine folks from The Wild North and prepare yourself for winter (it's never too early) at INLAND this September 6+7, 2014.
