Passenger Pigeon

Double-Breasted Hoody: 55% Hemp, 45% Cotton Fleece Hand-dyed

Passenger Pigeon has deep ties to the earth. The clothing company's name evokes the symbolism of the extinct passenger pigeon, and how our own carelessness and blatant disregard for nature caused this sad calamity. Hence, this Canadian company has adopted a soft footprint approach to garment design. Passenger Pigeon uses only environmentally friendly textiles... organic cotton and hemp, harvested and manufactured without using pesticides and or sweatshop labour, are the bulk of fabrics used in the garments. And all the clothing are designed, sewn, dyed, and screenprinted in Toronto. Be proud, Canada!
Some beautiful pieces from the winter collection (it is still winter ain't it?!)...
