All of our products are designed in Montreal by the artist and founder of our brand Patricia. The prints are also made locally, thanks to our wonderful suppliers specialized in screen printing.
We manufacture our products locally as well as internationally. Our small team is continuously working in order to find solutions that respect our mission as well as offering you the best quality products possible.
For our products manufactured internationally, we ALWAYS make sure to work with ethical manufacturers. We always do all the research and put all the efforts necessary to only work with that type of manufacturer, it’s something that is really important to us and we won’t be making any compromise on that front!
We write the place of manufacture of each item in their respective description box.
We work with makers both locally and internationally. We make sure to review different aspects carefully before deciding to work with any international provider, such as production licenses and working conditions in factories
We always build a long term partnership with all of our providers, both local and international, to ensure that we have the same values and to respect our mission.
For La Pimbêche, caring for the environment is always at the top of our priorities. Internally we always make sure to put forward all the necessary efforts in order to implement ecological practices to reduce waste.
It is also important for us to be authentic and open in our communication to avoid greenwashing. At the moment, only our tote bags are made from recycled materials. Our denim jackets are also vintage and we make sure to ship your orders in 100% compostable packaging.
Despite all those efforts, we are not able to have an eco-responsible certification at the moment or to communicate further practices. Although it is something we are working on continuously, as it is important for us to be able to offer products and services that are environment friendly.
For La Pimbêche, we always want to promote love, diversity and inclusivity through everything that we do and language is also an important part of it ! It’s in order to celebrate the beautiful linguistic diversity that we have here in Quebec and Canada, that we use both French and English in our communication as well as our designs.
Our dream is to have our messages travel from one person to another on a global level, in order for them to touch as many people as possible and to have a positive impact on the society we live in. To do so, it is then fundamental for us to make our messages as inclusive as possible in their content but also by using different languages.
La Pimbêche always speaks forward about intersectional feminism, which is a type of feminism that promotes solidarity by recognizing the plurality of realities for women here and abroad, as well as the differences experienced by each community in regards to economical, cultural, political aspects and much more.
We want to be part of the solution and actively contribute to a better world by bringing forward avenues of reflection, discussing and reflecting together, in order to be part of the discussion on intersectional feminism.
La Pimbêche is continuously promoting values of solidarity, gender equality, diversity, love and inclusion. For us, feminism is also about giving back to our community by collaborating with other fierce women to combine our forces and lift each other up.
We strongly believe that it is through solidarity that we can grow and move towards a more inclusive and loving community. Which is why we not only want to be part of the discussion regarding social issues but also bring forward concrete actions that can make a difference.
Inclusivity in the sizes we offer is something that is so important to us at La Pimbêche.Our beautiful community being very diverse, it is our priority to be able to offer each and single one of you as many options as possible. We are working very hard in partnership with our manufacturers in order to ensure that.
With the COVID-19 pandemic and the supply chain shortage, our small business was put in a difficult situation in regards to sizing availability. When there’s a shortage at one of our suppliers it directly affects our stock and the sizes we are able to offer.
We are constantly working towards solutions in order to offer you guys the best selection possible in terms of sizing. It’s part of our core values to always be inclusive and celebrate gender and body diversity. All our products are unisexe and our sizing charts go from S to 3XL.
Body and cultural diversity is always present in our campaigns through the choice of our wonderful models.
