It's a lifestyle brand that takes a stand against fast fashion and the damages it causes. We want to inspire the dreamer and the traveller to take actionable steps towards a more sustainable way of living. It all starts at an individual level. Clothes & Roads is doing its part by providing clothing that is ethically made here in Quebec by fairly paid workers.
My name is Marie-Eve Bournival-Paré and I am the founder and creator behind Clothes & Roads. I'm just as much a dreamer and a traveller as you are. Clothes & Roads started as an idea, and evolved into a dream. Oh, and also, I once was a broke student who couldn't afford to buy new clothes. I figured ''Why not learn how to sew!?'' Creating and repairing my own clothes was a resourceful and economic way to make ends meet. Turns out, I am an autodidact.
The inspiration came from my many backpack travels, which resulted in a minimalistic lifestyle that I rapidly embraced, and a growing social and environmental conscience. Thanks to my mom's sewing machine, the dream to start my own business and making a difference became reality.
Thanks for joining me on this adventure!
