Thief&Bandit is a brand with a wild spirit, exploring and challenging the norms of both excitement in fashion and production integrity. They have always been the outsiders doing things their way, a small design team creating every Thief & Bandit collection from sketch to seam.
Their values have stayed the same for over 10 years- all of their fabric is printed by hand, garments are sewn by hand, with every order fulfilled in their own studio. A commitment to sustainability means they work with only organic textiles: jerseys, cottons, raw silks, georgette, french terry. The water based acrylic inks they print with are non-toxic, making them safe for waterways and our oceans. And their prints are immediately recognizable - they are sporadic, lively, wild spirited and unusual, speaking to those with the same fierce spirit. Every Thief&Bandit collection begins with the same intent- for our garments to empower the wearer, the same way they feel when they create them.
Thief & Bandit's workspace is a full production studio, located at 1673 Barrington street, on the second level of a historic building in downtown Halifax. The open concept space is home to a 17ft long print table and sewing studio. Hello, fun!!
