You want to look and feel great; you need fun, unique outfits to keep up with the million things you have to do in your day. You are looking for something comfortable, yet flattering, you want to support Canadian and make better environmental choices, but you only have a limited budget.
That was us.
BEGINNING OF UNTAMED
We had that same problem ourselves, and when we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we made our own. At that moment, Untamed was born, and we haven’t looked back since.
We soon realized that women of all shapes and sizes have body insecurities and wearing custom clothing that flatter and fit allow women to feel empowered in their shopping decisions.
With Untamed you have a wide range of inclusive sizes, so feeling confident is achievable for every woman. No matter your body shape, self-image or style, Untamed offers exactly what you need to love yourself.
It’s about looking good, feeling great and doing it in a positive way that always makes you smile.
PROUDLY SLOW FASHION
The team at Untamed are proud to be apart of the Slow Fashion movement; we believe that you can get affordable, good quality fabulous clothing that is also good for the planet.
Slow fashion is a movement focused on improving sustainability by challenging social cultures surrounding the industry and encouraging retailers and consumers to take a more ethical approach to fashion. As the industry continues to accelerate, and with it – its carbon footprint, there’s never been a more critical time to consider your purchase choices.
The advantages of slow fashion are countless
- It lasts longer;
- It offers a unique style;
- There is less pollution;
- It has less impact on society;
- It helps grow the local economy
GOOD QUALITY THAT FEELS GOOD
The fabric that we use at Untamed comes from Kendor Textiles in Vancouver, and we love their passion for doing everything they can to help the environment. Read more about their commitment here https://kendortextiles.com/pages/sustainability
We only make to order, so yes your design takes a little longer to get to you, but at least we never have leftover stock that goes into a landfill. We are proud to say that we keep waste low and the environment in mind in every business aspect.
With all Untamed Collections, we are proud to say that you can wear them all year round. We don't design clothes for a specific season or event; we design clothes that you can wear all year round that fits into your lifestyle.
The sleeveless ones look amazing with a long-sleeved top underneath or a cute jacket over the top so you can wear them in the winter. The sleeved ones are perfect when it cools down in the summer, after boating, camping, having a evening picnic, or running around after the kids or dogs. Also, the fabric is ideal all year round, so you can find fun ways to always rock your creation.
Plus the fabric is super soft, the designs incredibly flattering, they cover your bum and make it look amazing! Oh, and they are all designed and made with love in Canada.
