Our Mission

METTA ~ a style of buddhist meditation, practicing loving kindness, wishing others well, eternal gratitude/benevolence, compassion towards oneself and others, to bring yourself to a place of calm

METTAMADE, is a mother-daughter sewing studio and retail storefront based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

METTAMADE empowers women to both feel good and look good, by equipping them with a quality, stylish and comfortable wardrobe that flexes with them at any moment in life. Our clothing is handmade to order, locally and ethically, using high-quality eco-friendly fabrics. METTAMADE’s clothing is designed with all bodies in mind and each piece is simple in form, yet versatile in function. We are inspired to create clothing that exudes quality, style and compassion towards the soft, strong and fluctuating female form.

Our fashion is driven by our mission to live and create mindfully and with Metta (“loving-kindness”).

SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS

  • We are dedicated to creating clothing that not only celebrates bodies, but encourages body love within the community

  • A portion of proceeds from each purchase are donated to Body Brave, a Hamilton-based Charity that provides services for individuals struggling with weight, food and body image issues, including eating disorders. 

ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS

  • Our clothing is made from bamboo jersey knits, one of nature’s most sustainable resources

  • Bamboo grows very quickly - up to one foot a day, and is 100% biodegradable and naturally regenerative

  • Growing this material uses ⅓ the water that cotton does, and bamboo yields 10 times more cotton

  • No chemical modification is used in the process of spinning yarn from bamboo

  • Bamboo fabric is naturally antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, thermal regulating, and resistant to mould

  • Due to its porous nature, bamboo breathes and wicks moisture away

  • Bamboo also has an excellent drape and a silky-cashmere feel

PERSONALLY CONSCIOUS

  • We believe in building with simplicity, for slow, responsible fashion

  • Manufactured locally, by hand, in small quantities

  • Customer-service focused, with a meaningful approach to supply and demand

  • Our product is our passion
