I thought I’d introduce myself a little more today. So my name is Marie-Eve, and I’m the founder and designer of Clothes & Roads.

I decided to launch my own clothing company in 2017 after coming back from a backpack trip and living in a tent, a trailer, a dorm, a van, and hotels for 10 months in the Canadian Rockies, the American East Coast, and Mexico. What a thrill it was !

Living out of a suitcase really pushed me to reconsider everything I possessed. Do I really need this? I concluded that you do not need lots of things to live well, and certainly not when you choose carefully and thoughtfully.

As the seasons changed over my trip, I managed to evolve my wardrobe according to my needs and I figured minimal was the way to go. Not only for my trips, but for my daily life too. Getting dressed in the morning became so much easier. The less clothes I had, (but that I actually wore) the easier it was to get dressed. It applied to my life on the road, and also when I came back, at home.

This is how I came around deciding to create minimalistic designs, versatile pieces that are a must no matter where your adventures take you, near or far from home. And of course, creating locally and being ecofriendly was a no brainer for me.

There you have it, how my adventures inspired me and eventually Clothes & Roads came to life!

If you want to know why I decided to make my clothing locally, you can read my other blog post over here.
