Values

Sustainability

spools of thread

We aim to reduce our environmental footprint by sourcing supplies, services, and products locally to reduce transportation emissions. 

All product sold at Blushing is locally sourced from Vancouver designers and manufacturers. See Made in Vancouver below for more information about where we get our merchandise, supplies and services.

We use minimal packaging when selling and shipping product, with zero plastic.

  • We use paper shopping bags that are made with 100% recycled paper (93-95% post-consumer and 3-5% post-industrial fibers) and water-based inks. 
  • When shipping product we reuse shipping boxes, or use small recyclable paper envelopes.  

Our boutique and studio, 3000 sq ft, are fully lit with LED lighting. The building uses hydro-electric heating. 

We have a 5% wastage on fabric, which is minimal because of our low production amounts.
