Versatile + Eco Friendly + Sustainable + Bamboo Clothing For Living In

Welcome to Movement Global where our mission is to make luxurious, cutting edge eco clothing that can be worn from the office to the yoga mat, using sustainable fabrics, fair pay, and giving a portion of our proceeds back to charity. We strive to design stylish, functional fashion that can take us through the multi-dimensions of a day only possible in the 21st Century, all while protecting the planet we live on. At Movement, we believe that less is more, and our clothing is built to last both in construction and style. 

Buy Less, Wear It Longer, Wear It In More Ways

Our lines are modular, reversible, and designed to go together. Each piece can be worn many ways, giving you more looks with less clutter. Movement Global's clothing for men and women is perfect for travel, as an under layer for skiing, running, or kayaking, or just for a daily wear, and it is all made in Canada from the highest quality bamboo and organic cotton. Our fabric is so soft and luxurious, that many of our loyal customers have called it "vegetable cashmere". 

How To Shop At Movement Global

We have three lines based on our three main fabrics: Core, Hold, and New Fleece.

CORE: This is the staple of our line. Light enough for hot summer months, and cozy enough for the winter. Bamboo is thermally regulating, and naturally anti -microbial. 

HOLD: This fabric is a first. Thicker, four way stretch bamboo that is perfect for yoga wear because it holds your body in place while still being breathable. It also naturally sculpts you, it's great for wearing under clothing when you want extra support.

FLEECE: cozy and warm, with the added benefit of being ultra bamboo soft, and sustainable. 

Based in Vancouver BC, we can ship anywhere in North America.

Vancouver's Cherry Blossom Festival

March 30th-April 23 2017
presented by Vancouver Board of Parks and recreation

The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (VCBF) is an annual spring festival held in Vancouver, British Columbia to celebrate the beauty of Vancouver’s cherry trees. The festival’s fundamental objectives includes public education through seasonal, cherry-themed, city-wide viewing programs, musical performances, and fine art and craft exhibitions. It enables Vancouverites and those in surrounding areas to appreciate the beauty of cherry blossoms.

The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival was founded in 2005 by Linda Poole, (a frequent Movement customer, we are proud to say!), to commemorate the 800 cherry trees given by Japan to the City of Vancouver.  

11th annual festival March 30-April 23th 2017, check out the website for calendar of events. www.vcbf.ca

About Vicky Frederiksen

 

Vicky Frederiken Painter artist Bowen Island

"I was born and raised in North Vancouver and both my parents were architects and amazingly creative in the arts. Art and creativity were always in my life. Drawing and painting was a passion when I was very young.

In 1978, at 23, I moved to California and got a job as a draftsman making structural steel drawings. I never thought of myself as creative, since the drawings were very strict and exact.

In September 2007 I needed a drastic lifestyle change and moved to Bowen Island. I decided that if I wanted to live differently, I would have to think differently.

I discovered through painting in oils in the style of the old Masters, in a workshop with Stuart Slind, that I could be creative and imperfect as well. In fact, sometimes the imperfections turned out to be “perfect”. I loved the idea that I could flow with my inspiration when I let go of the outcome.

Through doing personal work that went hand in hand with my painting, I now live with integrity, inspiration, full of enthusiasm for life and my love of the arts."

About Carol McNaughton

"Upon retirement from the Graphic Arts industry where I supervised graphic artists, I  had time and space to explore my own creativity.  Soon after moving to Bowen island I started to paint, first in watercolours and then in oil.  

Drawing and painting were  pass times I enjoyed as a child, and  I was encouraged by parents and teachers to develop my talent.  Upon graduating from high school I enrolled in the art college in Calgary.

My favourite subjects are portraiture and animal painting.  Living on Bowen has given me a lot of inspiration.  I love and draw from its scenic beauty."
