“We want to inspire confidence and allow you to dare while giving you the information to make sustainable and committed clothing choices.”
– Catherine & Anne-Marie
The brand in a nutshell
Anne-Marie and Catherine are the inseparable friends who founded the atelier b brand in 2009. Their sustainable and minimalist clothing collections for men, women and children are gently made in Montreal from natural fiber textiles. From a workshop in their apartment when they were still students to their studio-boutique in Mile End, the project keeps growing with them. The key values of slow design have remained central to each of the decisions made by the two friends. Moreover, their circular economy project has made the brand the first in Canada to have zero-waste manufacturing. Their end of life collection program for atelier b clothing, in addition to the quality guarantee and the repair service, shows the concern the two friends have for the life cycle of each garment created in their workshop.
atelier b is multiplicity, gatherings and family.
These are refined, original and authentic collections where the products respect the traditions of textiles and clothing while innovating in terms of sustainable development. It is a quiet force that marches slowly - slowly but surely - while always keeping its sense of play and celebration.
