As we adjust to the "New Normal", we realize the importance of strengthening our economy through our local businesses and industries. When you wear a piece from us, we're proud to say that it is truly “Made In Canada”. There are so many ways our business supports other local businesses.
Along with our commitment to producing our line using eco-friendly, sustainable methods when possible, our mission statement has also always included using local vendors.
From our team to our agents, every step of Diane's process involves a Canadian, likely local, element. Through your support, we're able to design and produce more collections - thus, giving back to our economy, as we continue to work with our Canadian factories and suppliers. Everything from the boxes we ship with, our hangtags and labels, all our printed products, even the zippers we use are Made In Canada.
While our fabric comes from Montreal, most everything else involved is purchased locally. One of the things we're most proud of is that all our garments are manufactured from 3 local factories in Vancouver. We think it's wonderful that these factories offer supportive, flexible work environments for their employees, ensuring that they're able to take care of their families, while still being able to work.
Even down to our shipping methods, we're proud to support our Canadian shipping company, along with Canada Post.
In an effort to continue to be actively conscientious, we are pleased to release a collection of high-quality face masks. This is in response to an announcement by Canada's chief public health officer, Dr. Tam, recommending that we endeavour to wear these to help everyone stay safe. We hope offering these will help you feel safe (and stay stylish).
Our pledge to support the local community endeavors to show how much we value our home, as much as our garments. Thank you to you for making Diane Kennedy possible. ❤️
