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.

New Items and Spaces on our Website!

New Items and Spaces on our Website!

Well spring is almost here, and we are taking this quiet space/time before that zany spring energy to tweak our website.

We have two new sections and a new objective for our website:

A sale section and a last chance section

As you know, our mandate is to present you with season-less modular clothing that will last for years. Some of our customers have worn their Movement clothing for a decade or more. We do small batch, Canadian-made pieces twice a year, and they can sell out fast. These are some of our last-chance pieces that are still available from years past.

A perfect place to find a style or colour that you loved, and want to replace...or find something new just for you!

Instead of searching through our stores, we will now be carrying most of our last chance items, and sale items online. A much easier way for you to find an exact style of colour that you love. You can still contact us to try it on, or see it in person, or you can simply purchase it through the site, and we will send it to you.

Our website will also be our new "warehouse" space. Check back in frequently to see what we have "in store" for you!

New this week online!

Last chance faves:

These styles sold out so quickly that we no longer have full colour and size ranges in them, so have put them online. You may be the lucky one to find your colour and size!

An all time Movement Classic the Betty Top

And two pieces that I am wearing together write now while writing this blog post, my faves...

The Grandpa Top...a perfect long top to wear over leggings, or ruche it up and put it on over jeans.

Topped with the Brit Bomber. Effortless glamorous layering...

Traveling never looked so good!  Our best travel fashion tips and ideas.

Traveling never looked so good! Our best travel fashion tips and ideas.

It's travel time of year again! In the last month we have had many people come in to pick up some clothing for various destinations around the world.  

Why Bamboo for Travel?

Bamboo is the ultimate travel material. Like cashmere, it's thermally regulating meaning it keeps you 2% cooler in the summer than other materials, as well as being cozy when you need it! It also doesn't need any ironing ( just hang up your clothes and the wrinkles fall away), or much washing as it is naturally anti-microbial, and it has built in UV protection. The fact that bamboo is also one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world is just a bonus!

Why Movement For Travel?

If you are reading this post then you know that our mission statement is: less not more. Our clothing is meant to work together modularly to create many different styles out of a few pieces of clothing. You can take just a few pieces of Movement on a trip, and get many days worth of looks. 

Our Best Looks For Your Vacation

Below are a few of our travel-tested outfit suggestions for seasons hot weather or mid-winter vacationing.

1) The Hannah Skirt and Shrug

Organic Cotton and Bamboo reversible skirt and top made in Vancouver

The Hannah Skirt is fully reversible to the teal side, can be worn as a skirt or a dress and is shown here as a strapless dress with the black shrug over it. Ideal for beach or black tie! Here it is paired with the T3 Sonoka tank, and can be worn off the shoulder, as a cowl neck or upside down as a top. Pair it with a pair of black leggings (P4 the simple tight), and add boots and be cozy in colder weather.

2)The Vicky V in bamboo slub, and the Jacado Dress

Bamboo and Organic cotton reversible dress and top in bamboo slub

Jacado bamboo and organic cotton dress in rose reversed

Our Jacado Dress is fantastic for travel. It's reversible back to front for a more casual look, or a night on the town. It's paired here perfectly with a light, slightly cropped long sleeve top that falls beautifully. This top works equally well with a pair of flip flops as a beach coverup. Bamboo slub is very light and works well as an extra pair of sleeves on an air plane, or protection from the sun. If you want something a little warmer on top, you can always pair this with the Rael Sweatshirt which has the same loose crop appeal.

3) Stephanie Tee with Sonia Wrap

Organic cotton and bamboo reversible v-neck t-shirt in stellar blue

Not your average T, we've been told the Stephanie tee is the perfect top. It's reversible back to front for a v-to-scoop neck look, and has a longer body for the perfect fit over leggings or skirts. Everyone of these T-shirts has a matching or complimentary coloured Sonia Wrap, giving it a uniform dressy look, or a pop of colour as you wish. Our Sonia wrap is a Movement Staple with so many ways to wear it!

4) Pia Pencil and Rael Sweatshirt

Bamboo and organic cotton cropped sweatshirt, and pencil skirt in Lavender and Navy respectively

Want to be so comfortable you can sleep in your clothes? Our other mandate is COMFORT. We believe it's possible to look stylish at NO added expense, and this outfit is classic Movement in that regard. Our Pia Pencil skirt can be worn so many ways: pulled up for a high waisted look, or rolled down, or even pulled up into a little strapless number. Our Rael sweatshirt has been a big hit. Made out of our new bamboo fleece, it's so soft and cozy, but loose and cool...it's the perfect little top.

5) Every piece is designed to go together for endless combinations

The mix and match outfits here are perfect for travel. Take any piece from any person and match it with what one of the others are wearing for endless options. With Movement it is possible to be sustainable and comfortable, while looking super classy, on trend, and fashionable in any country in the world.

Our clothing is really season-less with it's ability to layer up or layer down. One of our customers is literally going from the Antarctic to the Amazon, and another one is going from Zurich to Peru. That's what makes Movement so great for travel.

Do you have a favourite travel outfit from Movement? Let us know! Our #movementgiveaway was so popular we are running it this year as well. For contest details click here.
