À propos de Frëtt

Label's background

Frëtt Design team started a women’s clothing label in 1997.  From the beginning, they have developed the original idea of integrating fur pieces into wildly coloured merino wool knits. Frëtt designs had immediate succes and her collections soon traveled across Canada, the USA and to Europe. WHY FRËTT !? At its inception, clothing where only manufactured one Fall-Winter collection annually. Frëtt"s creations are to protect from the FRËTT ! (Quebec slang word for Very very cold! :)

Gaspé Peninsula

In 2006, Frëtt set their sights on local small scale production and moved workshop to Caplan in Gaspésie (East of Québec). In these new headquarters a new spring-summer line was born favouring the use of natural fibers and comfortable cuts. In 2007, Frëtt ventured into making clothes for men using warm merino and alpaca knits and supple organic linens and cottons; fabrics that have become the designer’s mainstay since.
