The Sleep Shirt is exactly what it sounds like—a brand of shirts made for sleeping. But how did the brand come to exist?
Meet founder Alexandra Suhner Isenberg!
'I started The Sleep Shirt in 2012 in Vancouver, where I grew up...I realized that I didn’t know any good places to buy nice women’s nightwear—not silk slips or satin robes, but ladies luxury cotton pyjamas. And just like that, The Sleep Shirt was born.'
While Alexandra lives in Sweden with her family, the rest of the majority-female team is in Vancouver and most of the manufacturing is done there, too, in an ethical factory that pays its staff above the minimum wage. The Sleep Shirt use mostly Oeko-tex or BCI-certified (Better Cotton Initiative) fabrics from Italy, Japan, Portugal, Switzerland and China.
At SFYS, we're very excited to share this female operated, Canadian made brand to our clients. Investment in quality pieces is important to us here and The Sleep Shirt fits right in!
