Old Fashioned Standards (OFS) is a small local business based on the unceded territory of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations which is now known as "Vancouver, Canada." Run and operated by women, OFS specializes in tailor made custom designs, natural fibres, and vegan water resistant materials such as oilcloth and waxed cotton.
At Old Fashioned Standards, we are committed to sustainability and the various ways fashion and style can be celebrated while causing the least harm to the earth as possible.
Our methodologies include:
-Working with 100% natural and vegan materials
-Using ethically sourced materials
-Making things that last a lifetime and are less focused on fleeting trends
-Making with as minimal waste possible
-Working with materials that have been discarded, be it factory dead stock or up-cycled cloths
The company began by working exclusively with 100% up-cycled Australian Outback Oilcloth, but has since branched out to also work with high-end and ethically sourced materials including selvedge denim, bull denim twill, corduroy, assorted wools, and the highest quality thread.
