Mindful Clothing 
Handmade in Nelson, BC, Canada
Cosmic String Apparel is Setting Trends, Instead of Following Them
Cosmic String Apparel Provides
Sustainable Clothing that Makes
Living an Environmentally
Responsible Life Easier!

We’re putting the planet and people first by
reducing textile waste and decreasing the demand
for fast fashion practices. We’ve implemented a
low-impact and sustainable lifestyle to each
aspect of the business:
Materials:

Hand-selected, one-of-a-kind, high-quality reclaimed/second-hand textiles make up each small-batch collection. New materials are only purchased as notions and trims (thread, zippers, elastic, etc).
Resources:

Zero-waste practices in every facet. Sales tags are made from upcycled cardstock and the excess fabric from larger clothing pieces has been utilized for smaller projects, further limiting waste! And all pieces are not reproducible, due to the limited amount of each fabric.
Labour:

Fairtrade practices: fair pay for creators, safe working environment, prioritizing local where Cosmic String Apparel is based in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada
Ethics:

Upholding the standard of high-quality products, all while working to preserve the planet at every production step, and providing employees fair, stable, and safe employment. Sales tags are made of 100% recycled and upcycled cardstock, and shipping materials are predominately recycled or recyclable materials – our reduce, reuse, recycle ethic is steeped in each facet of Cosmic String Apparel.

    The designers at Cosmic String Apparel have been creating unconventional clothing since 2009, with their first brand: Cat Hats (more information about Cat Hats).

    In 2017, they transitioned the clothing line in a new direction and founded Cosmic String Apparel, launching with a small-batch collection of unisex utilitarian pants.

    Cosmic String Apparel has implemented a low-impact and sustainable lifestyle to each aspect of the business: materials, resources, labor, and ethics.

    By providing guilt-free fashion choices, modeled with mindfulness practices, we’re putting the planet and people first by reducing textile waste and decreasing the demand for fast fashion practices.
