Terrera means "Our Time On Earth". It is formed with two words, "terre" meaning earth in French, and "era", meaning period in time.
Our women-led team designs bi-annual collections of easy-to-wear clothing using fine quality natural fibres including bamboo, organic cotton, and Tencel.
We started in 2007 during a time when sustainable sourcing was new in the Canadian fashion industry. Our founders wanted to create environmentally conscious clothing that would fit and flatter all women, and thus, started our predecessor brand "LNBF-Leave Nothing But Footprints". To this day, we are a small but mighty team and we continue to make sustainable clothing and bedding products for everyone. In 2020, our name changed from LNBF to TERRERA to reflect our growth and vision.
We believe that our purpose is to love one another and our earth that we call home.
We care for everyone involved with producing our clothing from the farms, to the mills, to the factories. We seek to build long-term relationships with our partners so that we can grow together and sustain the livelihoods of all peoples. All of our overseas factory partners in China are audited to ensure that they exceed national standards for health and safety, workplace conditions and workers’ protection. Once the pieces are ready, we slowly ship them by sea to Canada to reduce our ecological footprint.
We believe that earth is a gift, given to us to be cherished.
We use textiles that are more sustainable than conventional counterparts. In all our products, we include certified organic bamboo and/or organic cotton in our fabrications. All of our clothing and home products, including every thread, button, stitching, and fabric dyes are free of harmful substances and have the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification. We are continually sourcing other earth-friendly fabrications to introduce to our brand.
