Q: Is OFCC really native owned and operated?
A: The short answer is yes; OFCC was created by an Indigenous person, but it is a brand that is meant for anyone. We are a CCAB Certified Aboriginal Business, and while conforming to the 'Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms' and 'Equal Employment Opportunities' we give preference to employing and promoting Indigenous People.
Q: Is OFCC only for Indigenous customers?
A: No. we are Native owned/operated and some of our designs are Indigenous specific. However, we are in the marketplace to bring value and quality clothing to anyone who would like to support our brand.
Q: Does OFCC operate in a good way?
A: Our brand takes a full circle approach to the clothing industry; we think a "bottom line"(profit) should have more than just one meaning. We embody Indigenous world views through our quadruple bottom line approach; ensuring that our Social Impact, Community benefit, Environmental footprint and Sustainable profit are all in balance.
Q: How does OFCC strive to be environmentally conscious?
A: The fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. In fact, it is the second largest polluter in the world, just after the oil industry. However there are progressive and alternative methods that can help to minimize the impact our industry has on the environment. Our garment suppliers adhere to strict guidelines set out by Industry recognized eco-certification organizations. These guidelines include using eco-friendly inks and dyes, reduced use of pesticides and environmentally toxic chemicals, just to name a couple.
Q: Where is the clothing made?
A: Our main suppliers are located here in CANADA. All of our suppliers adhere to ethical standards that align with the sustainability goals of our brand. We NEVER source from China or other places that do not follow the same standards. Rest assured when you shop here, you are getting ethically sourced, quality made clothing and accessories.
