Kotn is an amazing ethical and sustainable clothing brand based out of Toronto.
They make everyday minimal basics using ethically-produced Egyptian cotton, perfect for keeping in your capsule wardrobe.
They’re also a Certified B Corporation, which basically means they do good for the world, including taking care of their workers and helping the environment.
They started out in 2015, and they’ve since built 7 new schools in Egypt where their cotton is farmed!
I also love that Kotn’s pieces are pretty affordable, especially for a sustainable clothing brand.

They’ve got basic pieces in fun colourways and prints, as well as classic denim staples.

They started out back in 2012, and actually used to have a clothing subscription service that you might remember if you were shopping from them back then!
You may have heard of Uncle Studios before, but this Toronto-based sustainable fashion brand is co-founded by one of my fave Toronto influencers, Allegra Shaw.
If you like Allegra’s style, you’ll definitely love the pieces they have on their website.
All their clothes are made with sustainable, recycled, or deadstock fabrics.
If you don’t know what deadstock fabric is, it’s leftover fabric from other brands that typically would have gone into the landfill.
Uncle also has a cool feature on their site that shows their total environmental impact!
Hoi Bo makes basics with a unique twist at their Toronto studio, and I love the modest and oversized style of their pieces.
They use timeless colours that you can literally wear forever without them ever going out of style.
They have clothing, bags, and jewelry that are all handmade in their studio and retail store in the Distillery District.

They make both men’s and women’s clothing, and their style is very laid back and ~west coast~.
Their wool pieces are especially nice (I adore the Melton wool shirt jacket), and Adam is a huge fan of the brand!
Since they are a sustainable fashion brand, they don’t have a huge selection of pieces, but they have beautiful and well-made clothing.
Another cool thing they offer is their Resell program, where you can resell your preloved ANIÁN garments to them and receive store credit!

They make fewer products in small collections to reduce waste, and they use sustainable and biodegradable materials like organic cotton, merino wool, and tencel.

They also donate 2% of their profits each year to charitable causes, which I think is amazing.
