[ABOUT .TOMATE D'ÉPINGLES.]


As seen in VOGUE magazine!

Recycling, upcycling, slow fashion… It’s all very trendy. But for .tomate d'épingles., it’s more than fashion : it’s a way of life!

Founded in 2006, .te. is ethical, unique jewellery and accessories crafted with 90 to 100% recycled materials. All .te. creations for men and women are audacious, quirky and ecological. They are entirely handmade in Canada.

We are convinced that fashion can have a great design, look fabulous and be ecological. We never sacrifice style for the sake of being green… and vice versa! We want to revolutionize the way you see fashion, it’s as simple as that!

In addition to these core values, we have very high quality standards, starting with the choice of our recycled materials themselves to every last details in the fabrication: we produce everything locally, most often in our workshop, making sure everything is just perfect, and reducing our ecological footprint to the minimum at the same time.

You will find our jewellery on Etsy and in several stores across North America.

Some of our claims to fame?

The 2010 .te. collection was launched at the Fashion Jam, the biggest urban fashion show in Canada; a record crowd of 2500 people attended the show.

.te. celebrated Earth Day 2010 alongside Harricana. The jewellery we created was presented on the runway of the 18th Montréal Fashion Week

Our tie bracelet was featured in the September 2010 issue of VOGUE magazine.
