Encircled is proudly one of the few Canadian-made Certified B Corporations that's woman-owned and women-operated. As a Certified B Corp, we uphold a higher standard of social and environmental ethics, accountability, and transparency.
Encircled clothing is locally-made within 60km of our studio in Toronto, Canada at garment factories we vet for standards against our Ethical Code of Conduct checklist.
Local production in Canada means fair wages, safe working conditions, regulated time off, provincially funded health care, and the right to unionize. Workers are protected by the Province of Ontario Employee Standards Act. We visit factories regularly, often weekly if not more frequently.
We prioritize working with local production on every component from labels, to zippers, to fabric due to the higher quality and standard of life offered to those who make the products locally in Canada.
Low impact dyes that are free of harmful chemicals, and tested to be safe for your skin and safe for the workers harvesting, knitting, and dying the fabric.
A large portion of our fabric (approx. 50%) is knit and dyed locally in Ontario, reducing our carbon footprint significantly.
Every fabric contains naturally-derived fibers that meet the highest standards of environmental sustainability. Read more on the Fabric below for each style.
Where noted, our fabrics are certified yarns, which means that they're sustainably sourced in a way that honors the planet in the process.
Encircled's founder Kristi started Encircled in her kitchen with a sewing machine she bought on Craig's List! Now they've grown into a full-fledged brand making really comfortable, super versatile, and high-quality basics that cut down on garment waste and dress women in clothes they’ll love. If you’re looking to simplify your closet or curate a capsule wardrobe, do yourself a favor and browse their collection—all ethically-made in Toronto with eco-friendly fabrics and upcycled materials.
Encircled offers a full refund on new, unworn merchandise provided that we are notified within 90 days of receipt of the product. An exception is final sale items, which are non-returnable/non-refundable/no exchange. In order to be eligible for a return, the merchandise must be unworn and in its original condition. We do carefully inspect all items, so please practice good karma and be careful when trying on items (i.e. remove jewelry, do not apply perfume). If the item(s) is not in its original condition (I.e. pet hair, makeup stains, smoke or food odor, visibly worn, etc.) you will be responsible for loss in value, and not eligible for a refund. The items will be shipped back to you at your cost or donated upon request. Encircled does not accept returns outside of their Return Policy, however, in special circumstances when an exception to a return outside of the policy is made, an $18.00 restocking fee will be applicable per return.
