"It started with a screen printing machine in a 12x8 ft dorm room. While attending college in 2016, I began screening original art onto t-shirts for family friends. But as I continued working with clothing, the horrendous state of the fashion industry became incredibly overwhelming. 
 
Building NTC, every decision came to a moral and financial crossroads. It seemed nearly impossible to create ethical clothing when it's more environmentally beneficial for it to never exist in the first place. 

NTC is a sustainable apparel brand built on the foundation of purposeful apparel. Our mission is to take clothing with what it currently represents and transform it into a catalyst for change by donating 100% of profits through unique charity collections."

Why We Do It

One of the biggest contributors to water and air pollution,

fashion giants are collectively worth trillions while over 90% of workers live in extreme poverty. 

We create apparel for 'conscious consumers' fed up with destructive greed and exploitive industry standards, actively combatting sweatshops, textile pollution and fast fashion. All while donating 100% of profits to causes primarily in the spaces of environment, social and health.

Social & Environmental Responsibility 

Our proprietary blend is made from rayon fibre and certified organic cotton. 

Bamboo is known for being luxuriously soft and extremely durable. Organic cotton uses half the water of traditional cotton farming and NONE of the harmful chemicals or pesticides.

FAQs

How can you fight the fashion industry when you're apart of it?


We do everything in our power to mitigate our environmental impact. Whether it's exclusively producing apparel here in Canada, using sustainable materials, or donating 100% of profits.

We exist to show that not only is it possible to run an ethical company but that it's in everyone's absolute best interest to do so.
