As a small business, we strive to support our local economy wherever possible. Because we can't grow coffee in the Great White North, we place more emphasis on sourcing other Canadian made goods like this classic fit tee by Jerico!
Made with combed 50/50 ring spun poly/cotton, this tee has a soft and smooth finish that is distinct from others on the market.
Jerico was founded in 1987 by two brothers and two sisters. It was a family business that grew in leaps and bounds as the textile industry flourished in Canada. Knitting machines ran 24 hours a day, dyeing operations ran consecutive shifts and sewing had a tough time keeping up with demand. These were glorious days for all involved in the apparel business. However, in 2001, the quota on imports was lifted and the markets were flooded with low cost imports. Over night Canadian manufacturers came under increasing pressure to drop their prices and outsource their production. Jerico decided otherwise. They believed firmly in the quality of Canadian labour and the necessity for humanity in employment. Jerico's success was not going to be based on the exploitation of foreign labour. The conditions of foreign factories were deplorable and the wages of their employees are dreadful. Jerico conduct's all thier manufacturing in bright and airy premises with fair wages and a congenial atmosphere that fosters collaboration. Thier employees are part of the family business and partners in thier success - and they like to treat them accordingly.
