Fashion: Feeling Patriotic with CMFR Canada

Emma Yardley uncovers the coolest coat

Finding that “Made in Canada” label can be as elusive as the mythical (or is it?) Sasquatch. Luckily for us, more and more new companies are seeing the benefits of investing in manufacturers and materials from our home and native land, and producing some top-notch clothes.

Cold Manufactured (CMFR) Canada makes all their cold-weather coats using tried, tested, and true traditional methods and cutting-edge technologies right here in Canada, bringing together the old and new in the most delightful way. Even though they’ve only been around for a few years, CMFR has already been named with official coat company of Northwest Territories Tourism and their Rowanwood jacket ticks off all the fashion must-have boxes.
