Our Story

Canadian-made garments for social good

MAKING OUR LAUNDRY LOCAL

It all started when our founder, Connor, picked a fight with a laundry machine. He lost the fight, but had an a-ha moment in the scuffle: What if all of our laundry was local? Like really, truly local? And from the ashes of that fight, Local Laundry rose. Today, we’re headquartered in Calgary and proudly Canadian, from our manufacturers and garments to our employees and customers. But the clothes are just the beginning: Our community is the heart of our story.

Community building

How we build community

We wanted to build a company that builds community, from the garments we sell to the charities they benefit. This isn’t about how our clothes look (but, yeah, they look good) it’s about how they make you  feel—comfortable and charitable. Here’s how we’re building community into our business: 

1. Producing only Canadian-made clothing

2. Representing where you come from

3. Collaborating with the socially-and environmentally-minded

4. Sharing stories from the community

5. Giving back through local charities

Charitable Giving

Giving back to our local charities

It’s not enough to sell Canadian-made clothes. We’re on a mission to donate $1,000,000 to local charities by 2030. We’re committed to putting our money where our mouths are—and that’s back into the organizations and people within our local communities across the country. 

Over $70,000 raised to date.

WHY CANADIAN-MADE?

MADE TO LAST 

When you invest in garments made here at home, you’re investing in quality. From high performance fabrics to tailored fits, these aren’t your average t-shirts that get worn once then  disintegrate in the wash.  

EMPLOYING OUR NEIGHBOURS 

Choosing Canadian is choosing jobs for your family, friends and neighbours. Jobs that pay a  liveable wage—plus health benefits—and keep our national unemployment rate low and  Canadians happy and healthy.  

FIGHTING FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS 

If you’re anything like us, you like to enjoy the great outdoors, whether it’s the Rockies, our  prairies or coasts. Shopping Canadian reduces our environmental footprint and keeps Canada  green for generations to come.
