Fashion by Le Galeriste
I’m excited to be working with Montreal’s Le Galeriste to offer a collection of original art on clothing produced here in Canada.
Since 2010, Le Galeriste has been creating Montreal-made premium fashion products. They proudly support local seamstresses and designers. Custom digital printed fabrics are dyed in-house with environmentally-friendly water-based inks. Focused on sustainability, Le Galeriste limits fabric waste to a bare minimum. Completely local production guarantees full control.
Le Galeriste doesn’t print on garments per se. Instead, the threads are dyed using a technique applied to one garment at a time for optimal colour balance. It’s an intricate and complicated process but it ensures that the artwork never fades, and that it doesn’t alter the feel of the fabric which has been custom-engineered for this specific production technique.
The technologies and machinery used in the production facility in Montreal were initially developed for high-end professional sports clothing. The polyester and spandex yarns are vegan, moisture wicking and wrinkle-free. Perfect for travelling!
Le Galeriste – The Wearable Art Gallery – showcases exclusive works of art, produced on high-end clothing made in Montreal, Canada.
