Hi there! I'm Elise, the designer behind June Isle Clothier. I was inspired to create modern, timeless, well-made, and ethically sourced children’s apparel after having kids of my own. It was difficult to find simple and sustainable children's wear, especially within Canada. With the help of my friend Bonny and my husband Daniel, we launched June Isle in the spring of 2017. Now with the help of my wonderful Mother and business partner, Margot, we are working hard to grow June Isle into a brand that produces quality garments with traceability, sustainability, ethical practice and giving back built into it's DNA. We are passionate about making well made and liveable clothing for our children, and yours.
At June Isle Clothier we value the art of simplicity and integrity; the concept that less is more, and that buying with intention and integrity is possible, even in the world of children’s wear. We strive to provide children’s fashions that are ethical and affordable. Our products are locally made in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada, using organic, high quality, natural fibers. We specialize in organic cottons, as well as hemp and linen fabric blends. At June Isle’s core is the intention to ethically source and produce garments that respect both humans and the planet. We see true value in small-lot production and the creation of a carefully designed and crafted heirloom garment. These pieces can be worn, played in, enjoyed and then passed on to be enjoyed by other little members of the family. Heirloom garments not only capture the nostalgia of a precious time with your little ones, but their inherent quality gives you the ability to share that joy with others. We also want to be a brand that gives back. 5% of all revenue is donated to International Justice Mission (IJM); an organization that seeks to free those enslaved by human trafficking around the world. We are proud of what we are creating at June Isle. A brand for families, that seeks to be transparent, sustainable, natural, and environmentally conscious. We can say with confidence that we know the origins of our textiles, and only choose to work with mills that are Oeko-Tec approved and specialize in organic and sustainable fabrics. We are also proud to support our local community by partnering with skilled seamstresses. We see how our garments are made, who they are made by, and are apart of every step of the process. We are June Isle, and we can proudly say all of our garments are made ethically with thought and care. Welcome to our family of slow fashion.
