If you've ever wanted to work within a small, creative team making ethical, zero-waste fashion... this could be your chance! We are currently hiring for a few sewing positions to help us bulk up our production.

Who we are and how we work: We are a small group of talented people who work in a close-knit team to produce ethical, zero-waste clothing. We work with very short lead times and in small runs, so our days are always busy and often split between various projects. We take pride in being meticulous, fast, and fun! Wearing masks in our workplace is currently required. Our studio is located in downtown Victoria, BC.
Who you are: You are detail-oriented, efficient and work well independently and with a team. You've got a great memory and don't shy away from repetitive tasks. You have experience with garment construction, working on industrial or domestic sewing machines and textile knowledge.
Written and spoken English is required for communication.
