We produce the majority of our clothes in Canadian manufactures, located in Quebec and Ontario. At FIG, producing locally is a long-term commitment. We believe it is our responsibility, as a Montreal, Quebec and Canadian brand, to play an active role in the local garment industry. Several manufacturers have been with us from the start; they are an extension of the FIG family.
International manufacturers have recently joined the FIG family. They share our values and our commitment for quality, and have become indispensable allies.
8) WHAT MAKES A GARMENT UV PROTECTIVE (UPF 50)?
UPF stands for “ultraviolet protection factor”. The highest rating is UPF 50 +. It is the density of the weave that allows the fabric to block UV rays. A dense and tight construction reduces the space between the threads, and limits the amount of UV light that is able to go through the fabric. No chemical treatment is added to the clothes. It is also important to know that a wet or stretched out garment is not as effective against UV rays. To find a sun protective garment on our website, use our Sun Protection filter.

11) WHAT IS A C6 DWR?
It is a short chain durable water repellent treatment to keep rain and snow out of a garment’s surface. This particular treatment qualifies as eco because it is less damaging to the environment than conventional C8 DWR treatments. Its components are less toxic and decompose faster in the environment. This is the best option on the market at the moment, one that offers a high degree of performance, and above all durability. Although this product is not perfect, we must remember that a long-lasting garment is also a way of minimizing our impact on environment.
