About us

At Nil Apparel, we believe in quality before quantity. Fashion as we know it today is devastating from both an environmental and social perspective, and we want to make a difference.

Our basics are made from 100% organic GOTS certified Indian cotton of exceptional quality. The entire production, from the knitting of the fabrics to the final assembly, is done by experienced Montreal artisans. We control the quality, and we always ensure a unique result that will exceed your expectations.
