The web sites www.organicapparelshop.com and www.vetementbiologique.com created and operated by Uniologica Inc. are the result of a personal and professional journey that started more than ten years ago.
Having a green mind-set since a young age, we started about twelve years ago to eat organic food and eliminate refined food and red meat from our diet. Early on we noticed significant health benefits; including more energy and improved general health, the discovery of subtle and refined tastes due to an awakening of our taste buds and an improvement in the health of our skin.
Francois started his professional career in the organic industry (cosmetics and aromatics) about ten years ago. e obvious to us that organic agriculture, which included more small-scale production methods that respect local ecosystems, was the only real path towards (sustainable) development. Since then we have taken part in the growth of the organic sector in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada. , it becam
Kendall received her BA and MSc in International Development while studying in Montreal, Havana, Amsterdam and Quito. Consequently, we had the opportunity to work in international development in both Latin America and Africa. The personal and professional experiences we gained through this work convinced us that it was vital to develop fair partnerships with producers in the developing world. We naturally came to the conclusion to launch a project that combines organic agriculture, fair trade and includes a component of international development. After carrying out some research, we decided to apply our values and join our experiences and skills to create a company specializing in organic and fair trade clothing from Canada and elsewhere.
We believe that Quebec, Canada and the rest of the world are ready to take the next step in the evolution of purchasing green products. Many of you have already integrated organic food into your diet and have decided to use organic body care products. The next logical step is to think about the clothing we wear daily. As many of you know, the contact between your skin and clothing is not neutral and it is common to react to clothes made from synthetic fibres. The decision to switch to clothes made with natural fibres, like cotton, is the first step in the right direction. The second step is to select a natural fibre that is certified organic. Lastly, it is now possible to connect the dots with organic clothing that respects each step of production, from the fibre to the finish garment, according to very strict environmental standards. We invite you to consult the Why Organic section to learn more about the benefits of buying and wearing organic apparel.
You may still be hesitating to buy your first piece of organic clothing. If this is the case, we suggest that you start with an underwear. Indeed, better to protect what is dearest to you! We also offer 99.8% organic cotton socks for people with skin sensiti
Now that we have become familiar with organic clothing we must not forget about the people behind the clothing, specifically the farmer who grew and harvested the plant and the people involved in the transformation of the cotton fibres into clothing. In order to ensure that those involved in producing the clothing, most of whom are located in the developing world, receive decent revenues we must purchase products that are certified fair trade. With your
What more is there to say after taking into account the importance and benefits of clothing made according to organic and fair trade standards? Let's not forget that first and foremost clothing must be of the highest quality and comfort according to your personal standards. We can say with pride that we know our partners very well and that we have been wearing the clothing we sell for many years (nearly ten years for some producers). Thus, in conclusion, we are proud to offer clothing that is comfortable, versatile, durable and has a classical look. We are convinced that you will be pleased.
