ABOUT FJORDLIFE

What is Fjordlife?

A: Fjordlife is an ethically sourced womenswear and natural beauty online boutique. 
We pride ourselves on only partnering with designers and brands who offer mindful and honest business practices - from fair employment, supply chain transparency to sustainability. 

When and where were you founded?: 

A: Fjordlife was founded by Brittany Haavaldsrud in October 2015, with offices based in Toronto Canada. 

Where does the name Fjordlife come from? 

A: Brittany’s great-grandparents immigrated from Norway to Canada to start a family business. They were her first example of social entrepreneurship. She wanted to pay homage to them when choosing the name. Geirangerfjord in Norway is close to where they came from and one of her favourite places to visit. Fjord’s to us are the definition of pure, clean and pristine - exactly how we want to live our lives.

Where do the products come from? 

A: We source worldwide for the best possible product and factories. The location of each product is listed in the product description. We strive to be as transparent as possible. For a more in depth look at the designers and factories we source from, visit our designer spotlight or blog page.

What is ‘sustainable style’ and ‘natural beauty’?
