Mission and Values
To inspire our fellow humans to create more thoughtful shopping experiences by providing hand-crafted, slow fashion pieces, as well as vegan, eco-friendly accessories such as hats and scarves.
In the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season in 2018. I suddenly became disheartened to notice how people mindlessly shop. Specifically at the time, by purchasing low quality winter hats and scarves for low prices that don't properly account for the labor, shipping, or the environmental impact involved in their creation.
Naturally at first this was due to business reasons, but it quickly became about so much more.
I noticed all types of textiles being purchased at low prices that don’t account for the impact they have on our people, our economies, and our earth.
We are getting used to inspecting the ingredients in our food and skin care, what they are and where they come from, but why not with our clothes and other fashion accessories?
85% of wearable textiles in Canada end up in a landfill every year. This is a huge number, and still doesn't account for the resources used to create these items, as well as the cost of shipping. The costs include (but are not limited to) the cost to the environment and the cost to our fellow humans.
Have you ever wondered how a company is able to sell a t-shirt for $5, or considering the costs I’ve way oversimplified, even $20, especially when our mass produced, fast fashion is shipped here from so far away?
At Tillys Cozy Hooks, we believe in thoughtful purchasing habits by inspiring others to make purchases that create value and spark joy in our lives. We do this by hand crafting every design for you to cherish for years to come.
