About this project
Our names are Hailey and Bree and we're sisters and the co-founders of Ungalli Clothing Company. A sustainably and ethically produced clothing company based out of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Inspired by both the beautiful place we grew up in, and the lack of awareness about the flaws in the supply chains of the fashion industry, we launched Ungalli in 2013.
At Ungalli, we are fiercely committed to creating a new style standard. We want to raise awareness of the negative impact the mainstream clothing industry has on people, wildlife and the planet. We think your clothes should express who you are and what you stand for, but never to the detriment of others. This is why Ungalli brings you superior style, quality and design, made with integrity every step of the way.
Ungalli has become one of the leading national voices on sustainable clothing practices and processes, in large part thanks to conscientious consumers like you! You've helped us garner enough attention to win a Top 30 Under 30 award for Sustainability Leadership in Canada, as well as the Quest Climate Grant from Canadian Geographic Magazine in December 2015. Together we are driving the sustainable style movement forward.
Today, we are asking for your support to help us expand Ungalli's product line with our brand new Joggers and help us to bring our sustainable lifestyle brand to the world! They'll be manufactured ethically in Canada from recycled water bottles and certified organic cotton.
Founded in Canada. Designed in Canada. Manufactured in Canada. Seriously though, the world needs more Canada! Thanks for helping us bring it to them.

What's the big deal with this hidden gem of a city we're from you may ask? This city in northern Ontario far from the city lights of Toronto, with the cleanest and crispest air, filled with culture and adventure. For a full understanding of our deep connection to nature and why we do everything we possibly can to protect Thunder Bay, and the rest of the world, please see the video below.

*Please note: Size charts for all products will be provided after the campaign is successful.*
*Please note: We choose to be transparent and honest about everything we do at Ungalli. The only thing you can buy from us that's not made in Canada, are our hats. As soon as it's possible to make these hats here, you can bet we'll be one of the first to do so! Our hats are made in China from sustainable materials at a factory that is WRAP certified (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production).*

According to Akhil, founder of Greenstory:
“Green Story is an online platform that estimates the positive environmental impact of eco-friendly products and services against conventional ones and helps connect consumers to the impact through visuals. We are proud to support Ungalli’s eco-friendly clothing line and are confident the impact numbers above reflect actual savings achieved by switching to Ungalli’s organic cotton and recycled PET over virgin cotton.”

Risks and challenges
Ungalli's factory partners are ready to go, and many of our products are well into production. That being said, creating new and innovative products (like joggers made from recycled water bottles) takes time.
Based on our past experience, we anticipate being able to fulfill orders within 8 - 14 weeks, but forecasting demand is not an exact science! If order volumes exceed our expectations, it might take slightly longer (or shorter) to fulfill orders.
We promise our new joggers will be worth your wait, and your journey with us will be memorable! If unexpected challenges arise that could potentially impact the production or delivery schedule of our new joggers, you’ll be the first to know.
