fairechild is committed to Mother Earth. Our process focuses on environmentally-friendly fashion design ensuring responsibly created, entirely recyclable collections.
We believe in transforming an old economy based on extraction and waste, into a regenerative economy, by advancing frameworks that value healthy ecosystems and social equity.
fairechild employs a transformative “Endlessly Reusable” model of environmental and social responsibility in childrens’ outerwear. Making recycled clothing is a mission we have accepted in order to allow families to get back to one of their most important pursuits: making and playing in the outdoors.
Supporting parents and educators in fostering curiosity and care for the natural world starts with transparency and our commitment to accessible, sustainable fashion. Our cradle-to-cradle process starts with the careful procurement of 100% recyclable textiles which we transform into superior-quality garments. The process finishes when the garment is returned to us for recycling at the end of its useful life.
All of our efforts are made with people and the planet in mind. We are committed to creating a sustainable future by engaging in the slow fashion revolution and minimizing high-polluting textile waste.
This Is How We Do It
Recycled bottles are spun into yarn. This manufacturing process is climate-neutral and reduces dependency on petroleum as a raw material.
We work with the impressive textile innovators at Sympatex to create our high performing fabric.
Our products are made by people we know. Each garment is skillfully handmade in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
The end result is a great piece recycled clothing with hand-me-down quality. Pass your outgrown fairechild to a friend or family member.
When the garment can no longer be worn, join our Take Back Program and send it back to us. We take responsibility for recycling it.
The membrane is made using advanced processes in polyester (PET), and consists solely of oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen, making it fully recyclable. It poses no health risk, being both PTFE-free and PFC-free. It remains completely waterproof under pressure and it is soft to the touch. Our high-performing fabric keeps moisture out while kneeling on damp ground, playing in snow or enjoying rainy walks in the park.
