Twigg & Feather is a Canadian women's apparel line that promotes sustainability and ethical production and strives to create effortless, comfortable and quality pieces that will last season after season. The line is proud to offer sustainable and locally sourced fabrics and yarns using socially conscious manufacturing in Canada and in partnership with a small, family owned and operated factory in Peru. Twigg & Feather also strives for zero waste, only offering small production runs and reduced and recycled packaging and sourcing local supplies to reduce carbon footprint whenever possible. Sweater knits are made in Peru, using locally sourced Peruvian yarns. Jersey knits are made in Canada, using Canadian fabric suppliers exclusively.
"I founded Twigg & Feather as an extension of myself; I wanted to create a line that not only encompasses my own personal style, but also was grounded in my desire to build something.
I love to design and consider it my own creative art form. I am committed slow fashion and to creating quality clothing that will last season over season. Each piece I bring to the market is produced at the highest quality, and for a fair price.
I want every Twigg girl out there to bring their own personal style to each piece, and hope they lovingly reach for them in their closets often. I want them to love themselves, feel good and be comformable when wearing anything Twigg & Feather. I truly love what I do." ~Jenn

Jenn wanted to be able to work from home to care for her baby boy Maddox, but still craved an outlet to be creative. From then on it was history in the making as Twigg & Feather was born ...
