Head designer and company founder Cynthia is a native of Rimouski in Quebec. During the more than 15 years she travelled the world working for leading fashion brands, she became aware of the major issues of fast fashion and the use of animal by-products. It all clicked in 2014, when she was presented with recycled fibre, a fabric that very few companies were using at the time. That day, with her daughter growing in her belly, she understood that she needed to use her love of fashion to effect change. She spent two years researching and factory testing to make this a reality. In 2016, she decided to take a leap of faith and launched the company ORAKI.
ORAKI is a Canadian eco-friendly clothing design and manufacturing company. We exclusively develop all of our fabrics. Our products are always changing, as we improve them using constantly advancing recycled material technology. Our mission is to create a wide range of products from recycled materials or natural fibres. We are always in search of the best technology. Our founding values are centred on durability, longevity and respect for people, the planet and the living beings who call it home.
Our collections are ethically made here in Canada in limited quantities to avoid inventory surpluses. We are always looking for innovative ways to manufacture clothing while leaving the smallest possible footprint and creating more circular supply chains. Our collections are made with just one goal: for women to feel beautiful, brave, strong and supported throughout their day. We offer sizes from XXS to 3X.
