Women's Depanneur T-shirt - Bamboo
The word “dépanneur” was coined in Quebec to designate small corner stores open late in the evening. These convenience stores have been in the Montreal landscape for a long time, allowing people to pick up food or necessities just around the corner when larger shops are closed. Many Montreal English-speakers have even adopted the abbreviated term, “dep.”

Bamboo - A very soft fiber that breathes
Our T-shirts are made from bamboo fiber, and they are available in a nice choice of colors. Bamboo is a fabric that breathes very well, and it absorbs three times more moisture than cotton. That's why you'll stay cool and dry much longer than with your usual clothes. Apart from being very soft to the touch, clothes made of bamboo do not wrinkle, so they are easier to maintain. They will be the softest and most comfortable t-shirts or tops you will ever own and they will last for many years!
Local manufacturing and ethics
Our T-shirts are made in Canada, by unionized employees with good working conditions.
Bamboo fibers have a unique antibacterial effect that helps fight bacteria. This makes bamboo clothing particularly well suited to people with sensitive skin. Bamboo tshirts or tops are also perfect for doing yoga, for dancing or other activites that require movement or physical activity.
Our bamboo fabrics have Oeko-Tex 100 certification. This certification promises that “every component of the article has been tested for harmful substances and that the article therefore is harmless in human ecological terms.”
