In an industry dominated by synthetic fabrics and chemical-laden textiles, Vancouver clothing company Etoiles Brisees is here to be the change it wants to see in the world.
With a focus on organic and ethical material, this brand is dedicated to redefining fashion through a commitment to sustainability, diversity, and timeless comfort.
Ahead of Etoiles Brisees’ upcoming online retail launch, we caught up with the company’s founder, Sonia Parmar, to chat about her fashion journey and the brand’s organic intention.
“It all started in 2022 with my mom and sister experiencing allergic reactions to certain fabrics and chemicals,” explains Etoiles Brisees Founder Sonia Parmar. “This ignited a spark of determination to find a solution. Not just for their needs, but for others who might share similar experiences, and want sustainable, organic clothing.”
The result is a local Vancouver brand that seeks to lead in the revolution of comfortable and sustainable fashion. With a strong emphasis on utilizing high-quality, skin-friendly, and breathable organic materials in its clothing, Etoiles Brisees recognizes that comfort is subjective, and strives to ensure wearers feel at ease in every piece.
But comfort doesn’t have to sacrifice style or practicality.
The core long-sleeve shirts are perfect for layering according to the occasion, the core sweatpants are a great way to coordinate your Etoiles Brisees outfit, and the high-waisted leggings are just as good for the gym as they are for chilling out or running errands.
Common customers include comfort-first shoppers, athletes, fashionistas with a conscience, and of course, the eco-conscious consumer. Parmar herself falls into the latter category.
“The brand’s dedication to using organic materials and adopting eco-friendly practices aligns with my belief in reducing the environmental impact of fashion.”
Etoiles Brisees also believes in fair labour practices and transparent sourcing to embody its values of ethical consumption.
“This commitment ensures that my fashion choices contribute to the well-being of workers and uphold humane working conditions,” says Parmar. “By choosing organic materials and adopting eco-friendly practices, the brand contributes to preserving the planet, ensuring that the stars in the sky continue to twinkle for generations to come.”
As we dig right into cozy season, the Etoile Brisees team is excited to launch its retail grand opening on January 16.
