Grand Opening of The dE Mossì Clothing Co. North 49 on-line store!
We have finally re-vamped our on-line store, and it is now open for business, check it out at:
Our philosophy is :
ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND + SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE + ECONOMICALLY VIABLE= SUSTAINABLE
ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND= LOCAL PRODUCTION AND TALENT
SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE= USE EXISITNG SERVICES FROM SMALL BUSINESSES TO SUPPORT THEM AND CREATE RELATIONSHIPS
ECONOMICALLY VIABLE= SMALL SCALE PRODUCTION LIMITS WASTE AND IS MORE AFFORDABLE
These products include items controlled or created by the members of the ensemble. Most of the ensemble members are small business owners who are located in Montreal, Quebec. They are in the process of or have already created products that are not yet on the market.
Such non-food items as t-shirts with logos designed and printed locally and food and beverage items such as natural health products, collagen based products which are manufactured locally. Most of the initial ensemble members are small business owners in the process of or who had already created/ acquired products that are more or less distributed in limited quantities throughout the area. These creations can all be used to establish an ongoing economic base to assist with project development as well as provide resources for day-to-day living expenses. A self-propelling machine, so to speak.
Grants, corporate funds and other private or public resources have their benefits but often times these funds are not always available and come with many strings attached. The collective self-help method favored by Groupe dE Mossì has its strengths and weaknesses. Nevertheless, this approach is the best method to immediately monitor output and input and to allow other local businesses to participate
