Upcycling

At Message Factory, The Company of Free Spirits, we pursue a quest for purpose.

We believe in the power of words and we are convinced that every little step makes a difference.

Since 2005, we have shared our messages to make you smile and to give you the courage to reach your true potential. We are committed to the health of our planet and that is why we have been producing locally our eco-friendly joyful clothing line.

We believe that reducing, even more, our environmental footprint is the only way our message can continue to be delivered.

But, what happens when all theses messages are slowly fading? How can we bring them back to life again?

Introducing UPCYCLING by Message Factory our initiative to close the loop and give our messages and our planet a make over. What is it? A 0 to 10-year-old children collection and home accessories all made from your good old Message Factory clothing.

To make it happen, we will recuperate your preloved Message Factory clothing from the forgotten closet and give them a second life by turning them into something beautiful, original and inspiring.

We will give them a second life for the next generation. Your favorite messages will be heard again and with your donation, you will take an active part in our initiative to limit our environmental impact and invest in the future of our children.

Starting this summer, every time you buy a new Message Factory product online, you can reuse the recycled shipping envelope to send us back your Message Factory garments that you don't wear anymore.

You can also deposit your garments at our St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu store or bring them to the Braderie de mode Québécoise. For orders sent by mail, we will send you by email a 10$ gift certificate that can be redeemed online or at our boutique to thank you for your action. Donations in person will receive a 5$ gift certificate.

Our new upcycling collection will launch Spring 2018. Stay tune and discover all those nice little things we will design to embellish your home and dress your most precious treasures!

Creative workshops 

Creative workshops will be organized spontaneously throughout the year. These activities are part of the efforts and the mission we have set for ourselves in order to limit our environmental impact.

Thus, by supplying the material to young and not so young artists, we will use fabrics leftovers and accessories otherwise be relegated to the refuse. Everyone will leave with his sustainable and reusable artwork.

To be informed of upcoming workshops, contact us. Take a look and see for yourselves all the joy and pride those creative laboratories generates.
