Commonwealth MFG, Winnipeg, MB: Fibre
Just over four years ago, Andrew Doerksen created Commonwealth Manufacturing (CMFG), a small company comprised of only two people. CMFG specializes in making quality collared shirts right here in Winnipeg. Everything is handmade from Japanese or organic fabric from abroad. CMFG is fully transparent about cost breakdowns and sourcing. The ethos is to make clothing diligently, transparently, and with (social/environmental) benevolence. The company has a Take-Back Program in which old CMFG shirts are repaired (if necessary) and resold at a low cost, with all profits being donated.
