This post is sponsored by Maylyn & Co., a new Canadian clothing brand focusing on eco-luxurious sleepwear.Â
Fall is right around the corner, and with many of us working from home these days, I rounded up the sustainable Canadian brands that make cozy loungewear. Everything isÂ made with care either locally or in ethical factories abroad. The brands are all available online, shipped from Canada, so we Canadians don’t need to worry about duty and customs fees. Some brands can also be found in local brick-and-mortar stores.
