Every purchase helps plant a tree
We share Tree Canada's mission to bolster Canada’s urban forest and inspire individuals, communities and institutions to do the same.

When you open your closet, do you find yourself bombarded with clothes, but with nothing to wear? Are all the tags marked “Made in China” or “Made in Bangladesh?” Is just about everything pilled and falling apart, and sewn out of fabrics whose origins and composition we continue to ignore?
We are all in the same boat, stuck in an industry that pressures us to
consume more and more at an increasingly faster rate. The cycle forces us to renew our wardrobe constantly. To keep up with this pace, we’re
confined to the cheapest options.
It has become imperative that we shift our paradigm and learn how our
clothes are made and where they come from. Sustainability. Ethics.
Transparency. Why not bring these words back into fashion?
We’re fed up with clothing that’s made under problematic conditions that
require our brothers and sisters to be treated like animals. To follow the
latest trends, we have to endlessly revamp our closets, and we don’t want to pay top dollar over and over again. That’s enough. From the very first stitch to the final product, we’re asking for transparency.
Disposable fashion entails a high human cost. Our environment also pays
an enormous price.
We are all together, each of us living on a planet that’s deteriorating at an alarming speed. Second only to oil, the textile industry is the worst culprit in global pollution. Clothing is filled with harmful chemical products that are detrimental to both our health and our environment. Our precious earth has zero need for any more pollutants. This is why RB is so committed to using the most eco-responsible materials available.
Our team works directly with manufacturers, garment makers, printers and knitters to create a product that will not harm our environment. Damage control translates into minimal water, pesticides and chemicals in our dyes. Eco also means zero waste. This is why at Rose Buddha, our Second Chance Jewel Collection revitalizes “unusable” scraps to give fabrics a second chance at life. Let’s transform our garbage into joy.
We love and respect all people. We stand behind the principle that we are all interconnected, and that behind every product, there’s a person. Contrary to what the textile industry might want us to believe, they continue to employ children for forced labour, as well as men and women who endure highly precarious conditions.
At RB, we know every person involved in each link of our production chain. We treat them as we would wish to be treated ourselves. We wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if we knew our products were created at the expense of victimized people.
Did you know that every year in North America, 81 pounds of textiles per person end up in the landfill? For this reason, RB has chosen to create long-lasting products that cater to style and not simply fads. One example is our printed leggings. Our visual artists helped us devise a unique and timeless vision that will never go out of style.
We assemble each piece with great care, thoroughly inspecting every stitch and lovingly choosing the fabrics to ensure your RB enjoys a long life. Working closely with the production team allows us to oversee and guarantee quality in every step. Our products are made to last and see you through season after season.
We know that our planet is racing to its end. We pollute, claiming there’s nothing to be done. In a world where everyone says it’s too late, we’re asking for transparency. We’re asking for a cleaner industry, one that respects its people.
To do so, we each have a big role to play. By getting informed, we can become conscious consumers. We have the power to create a shift by changing a few of our habits. At RB, we’re proposing an alternative to an industry that no longer reflects our values.
We’ve given you the choice to fill your closets with eco-responsible clothing that’s made with respect for others.
Join RB’s movement toward a responsible and respectful industry.
