I Found 20 Made-In-Quebec Fashion Items, All Under 100$

Fashion finds made in Quebec under 100 $ by Joëlle Paquette

Generally speaking —so when there’s no global pandemic happening—, I prefer not to focus too much on price when it comes to sustainable fashion.

A good quality product that abides to a strict code of ethics, both social and environmental, will always cost more. It’s a fact. Otherwise, stores like H&M and Topshop would not exist.

But with the COVID-19 crisis, we’re in a peculiar limbo. Our conscience and our wallet are not on the same page. At all.

On one hand, we want to support our local economy. Buy from our favourite local companies. Make sure they’ll still be standing after the storm has passed.

Oppositely, we’re not necessarily in the mood for spending our precarious income, which feels more like post-apocalyptic money right now, on frivolous stuff. Something that’s even truer for those who have lost their jobs. Spoiling myself with a 300$ organic cotton dress made in Montreal? Sounds nice, but not the best timing.

Ladies, I get you. I’m going through the same dilemma.

And that’s why I decided to write this post: 20 clothes and accessories made in Quebec, all under 100$.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want to devaluate the hard work of designers or create a culture of ‘discount hunters’. But right now, with everything going on, I thought it would be a good way of answering both sides’ needs and expectations.

I’m also aware that 100 $ is not necessarily cheap either. Especially right now. But with Zara selling dresses up to 259 $, it seemed like a fair price for living by our values :)
