Approximately eight years ago, Vi&Jax owner Jillian Weselosky had a dream. After two-and-a-half years of trying out different things, the real Vi&Jax was created - a shop to create girl's clothing, and with that, clothing made from quality materials.
Five-and-a-half years later, we are the largest handmade, custom bamboo clothing shop in Canada. This includes sizes newborn to adult 3XL, blankets, gender free options and other handmade accessories.
All of our fabric is OEKO-TEX® certified. The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a worldwide consistent, independent testing & certification system that tests for harmful substances used during all stages of production (raw materials, intermediate, and end product.) This includes testing for illegal substances, legally regulated substances, known harmful (but not legally regulated) chemicals, and other parameters for health care. It provides manufacturers with a uniform benchmark when evaluating harmful substances potentially used in the production process. Extensive product checks and regular company audits also ensure that the industry has a globally sustainable awareness of the responsible use of chemicals.
We are also proud of our vibrant, silky soft, and durable bamboo fabric options, and our ability to employ women and parents whilst offering a fair, livable wage.
If you are curious on our process, we are so glad you are here learning alongside us.
Prints and solids are carefully selected by our team (and sometimes, our customers!) to appeal to a large audience. If we can't find the print we are envisioning, it is made by Jill herself.
Once selected, they are printed by one of our fabric printers. Our printing process can take a bit longer than others, due to our extra vibrancy and durability.
After fabric is received, it is cut, and then sewn by our team of seamstresses in Calgary, AB.
This process varies based on the amount of fabric being cut and sewn, but on average, we see 12-14 weeks. This is due to the materials being custom printed, and made exclusively for you.
Our pieces are then inspected, shipped, and delivered to our customers.
As we work through hundreds of pieces every month, we have seen and loved watching our customer base grow and evolve into a community of supportive, like-minded people.
As always, we thank our customers from the bottom of our hearts, as the support and love for Vi&Jax is something that can't be replaced.
