We aim to take the high road, choosing to ‘do better’ in all aspects of AYRTIGHT. Decisions are carefully weighed so that the best course of action for people and our environment can be chosen.  In addition to our commitment to Canadian manufacturing, our philosophy is to increasingly prioritize sustainable fabrications & industry best practices.  Our styles are graded as ‘do better’ in the product descriptions as ‘committed’, ‘striving’ and ‘optimal’.

 

COMMITTED

Proudly owned, managed, designed, manufactured and distributed by women in Vancouver, BC, Canada.  Timeless styling, quality construction and small batch production all align with our managed scarcity ethos to avoid overproduction and needless waste.

 

STRIVING

In addition to being made in Canada, styles marked STRIVING feature fabrics that are made from either predominantly natural fibers or recycled yarns including cotton, wool, recycled nylon and recycled polyester.  These fabrications are ‘better’ alternatives to the production of new synthetic or petroleum-based options.

 

OPTIMAL

Styles marked OPTIMAL are made in Canada from premium TENCEL™ Lyocell & LENZING™ ECOVERO™ Viscose fabrications. These fibers are derived from sustainably managed feed stock, produced with low environmental impact & high resource efficiency, contributing to a minimal environmental impact and more sustainable future for our planet.

 

TENCEL™ & LENZING™ ECOVERO™ are trademarks of Lenzing AG.
