Made In Canada
We work from our studio or with one seamstress and her home based studio on her terms (she calls the shots for hourly wage and hours worked). With her 50+ years of experience and her assortment of tools, we are able to combine our talents to provide something new every time.
Approximately $45 cad from ever jersey sold goes towards our seamstress.
that complement your body
Before Pillar Height there was Lucid Lifestyle, a boutique I (Andrew Gonzalez) used to own. That shop sold a majority of sustainable goods and apparel for 8 years where I was able to gain a wealth of experience on what fabrics and designs worked for the cliente in real world.
Hemp became one of the fibers that stood out after all those years. Amazing in the summer heat and sun, UV protective and durable were just some of the properties just to name a few. I knew just who to contact. A company in China who was well spoken about and already sold quality finished good in my shop with all the right certifications we were looking for. We also use local fabric suoppliers and once in a while dead stock from Fabcycle.ca
Dead Stock fabrics
France for enhanced synthetics
Some have said we are ahead of our time with the hemp fabrics. But we're also ahead of our time using the highest quality synthetics polyamides made in France. Price is no barrier for us when seeking the right fabrics while other brands are looking at cutting cost for higher profits and margins they seek generic low quality polyester and nylons. No other cycling brand would use $40/meter fibers but we do and absorb the cost saving you money.
I mean it when I say I'm here to deliver a reasonable priced high quality jersey.
Check out our French toile woven and light weight jerseys for more details.
Thank you for slowing down.
It's a fast world out there, content keeps coming at us faster than it has ever before and unfortunately so do products. Products that are made by raw resources that have an impact. Lot of these products are made by oil based synthetics like polyester and nylon with impacts before, during and after their use with humans. Made by people in factories or home studio who don't always work in the best conditions.
We're here to help, not just you but some of the issues above.
