We are always working on improving. Being completely handmade and not relying on laser cutters or heavy duty equipment, it is a struggle to compete with the big factories as far as details and design. We are forced to design the collection in a way that minimizes theme requires for each garment, because, frankly, we cant afford to spend more money on labor than we are making on each piece. One big change we have made for the FALL is using several different colours of thread, as opposed to previous seasons where your garments would either be sewn in black or white.

SPRING 2018 PRESS RELEASE-Portage and Main


“Portage and Main represents quality and value that has been forgotten by fast fashion,” said Reeves. “We work hard to make sure materials are derived from ethical sources and all workers are paid a fair wage.  Any materials that cannot be sourced from Canada, like cotton for example, are from certified factories overseas that pay their workers a living wage and use processes with minimal chemicals. We have been able to achieve a nice balance of creating jobs within Canada in ‘cut and sew’ fashion with outside manufacturing.”
