Gaïa

Gaïa is the ultimate Earth Mother. According to ancient Greek mythology, she lived at the center of the earth and provided nourishment for everything on the planet. By creating Gaïa, I wanted to make my own contribution to ecological awareness by promoting the reworking, transforming, and recycling of cloth materials.

Based in Quebec city in the St-Roch district, the Gaïa workshop creates innovative and original pieces made from recycled clothing .The Designer Chantal Durette and his team  made 100% recycled products.

Gaia Collection began in 2004 and has not finished to amaze you!

SOME ALARMING FACTS:

- Nearly 80% of the fabric thrown away each year is non-biodegradable.
- We consume 60 million tons of fibers to clothe 3 billion people.
- In 50 years, 13 billion people will consume 200 million tons of textile fibers.

*** Did you know that according to a 2003 study conducted by Equiterre, the average Quebecois bought 23 kilos of new clothing and threw away 21 kilos of clothing per year. .
