Give clothing is a proudly Canadian and locally owned business in Muskoka, Ontario. Founded by Teresa Patterson, Give clothing promotes a healthy active family lifestyle featuring beautiful designs made from sustainable fabrics that encourage children to explore their world in comfort!
Teresa believes the choices that we make everyday contribute to our overall wellness, which include the fabrics that we place against our skin and our level of activity. Give clothing and accessories are designed with comfort at the forefront, using fabrics that are sourced from organic cotton and merino wool which allows the skin to breathe, regulates body temperature, draws moisture away from the body and is free from toxic chemicals.
“I am a mother, artist, teacher and environmentalist. I have four children who continue to inspire me everyday. Like every parent who first gazes into their newborn’s eyes I wanted to do the best that I could to raise each little being with natural loving care.” says Teresa. “I began asking ‘What does it mean to be a green parent? How can I raise children who will care enough about our planet to embrace change?’ I started cloth diapering in 1996 before “being green” was popular and learned a great deal along the way!”
In her quest to find clothing made from materials that are grown without pesticides and herbicides, Teresa was surprised by what limited availability there was for children’s active wear made from sustainable fabrics. Necessity is the mother of all creation and it was the beginning of Give clothing!
Beautiful designs made from sustainable fabrics encourages children to explore their world in comfort, while giving peace of mind to those who purchased them. Give clothing truly believes in giving back and being conscientious, including responsible disposal of waste, limiting use of poly-bags and plastic hangers, as well as reusing and recycling packing and shipping materials.
Give clothing believes that the sustainability of our planet begins with consciousness and that we can all be a part of the solution! For anyone looking to find a comfortable and sustainable way to stay active, visit Give clothing and become part of a growing movement to keep our planet green!
