New Favs!!

These are honestly my new favourite leggings!! Warm, cozy, comfy, and so soft!! They are everything they promise and more! I would definitely recommend sizing down on these ones though - my measurements are squarely in the Medium, but I bought the Small and am so glad I did - they fit great!

Cozy and warm

These leggings are just what I was looking for - warm, comfortable, stylish, and keep their fit despite several wearings. They are now my 'go-to' choice for winter pants and go with everything. And I feel good about wearing them knowing they are sustainable, Canadian-, and woman-made.

Favorite ever leggings!

Love, love, love my leggings! They fit like a dream (but more importantly, just like the sizing chart says!!), they're incredibly warm and incredibly sturdy. I've been wearing mine pretty often for a few weeks now, and I most leggings start to pill between the thighs pretty early, but not these! I will probably end up buying another pair soon - they shipped ASAP, and arrived lightening fast, even considering international shipping madness. 10/10!

Comfortable and perfect fit

I have only worn Anne Mulaire leggings for 5+ years now. They are SO comfortable and fit me like a glove. I also love that you can customize the length as I am on the shorter side. Because I wear them all the time up and down with 3 kids, and often for yoga, they generally only last me about 1.5 - 2 years before the knees spring a hole. I have found that the pairs with prints on them often show wear and tear of the print fairly quickly - less than a year. Those would be my only complaints.

So comfortable!!

These winter leggings are fantastic!! The fabric is so soft and keeps my legs warm when outside with my kids. I am so happy with my purchase!! The length is perfect with the custom hemming, at 5'2" my pants have never properly fit. I ordered a size XXL, and could have gone a size down but this was my first pant purchase postpartum and I am appreciative of the loose fit.

Everything I want in a Legging

Soft, warm, and comfy? Check. Opaque? Check. Plenty of stretch? Check. Good quality? Check. Sustainably and ethically made? Check. Locally made? Check. Great customer service? Check. These leggings transition easily from home to office, and everywhere else public, comfortably, easily, and with style, by simply adding a Bum Warmer. They're warm enough to walk my dog in. The fact that they're super stretchy is great because my weight fluctuates wildly from day to day. I've also gained weight during COVID, some of which I know I'll shed, so being able to buy my normal size (one size range smaller) and fit in them now means I can still buy a good quality product that I can't wear down the road.

These leggings are lovely to wear. Super cozy and fit well at a size down. Cheaper versions of a lined legging are too restrictive feeling. These are NOT.

I bought my first pair last year, and just bought two more because I love them so much. They fit perfectly, don't stretch out, are warm, and have held up great. I love that I can customize the length as most leggings/pants are too short for me.

HOW TO MEASURE

BUST : Take this measurement while wearing a bra, ideally the one you intend to wear most of the time. Place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust. Keep your arms down when recording your full bust measurement.

WAIST : Place the measuring tape at the narrowest part of your torso (your natural waist). Be careful not to squeeze too tight to allow a little give and make the measurement. 

HIPS : With your feet together, place the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips. Ensure you'll have enough room to move comfortably and make the measurement. 

INSEAM :

  1. Start with a pair of pants and/or leggings you already have that fit you well and lay them flat on the floor.
  2. Carefully measure the length from the crotch seam to the bottom of the leg.
  3. THIS NUMBER IS YOUR INSEAM. Use this number to help you choose your next pair of great-fitting pants. 
  4. Start shopping by your inseam!

Story of our Héritage designs

We are proud to walk tall with our cousin nations and want to keep sharing our beautiful indigenous stories with you. 

Catherine’s Vine print

The Grey Nuns first introduced silk embroidery to the Red River Métis in 1844. Métis women used silk embroidery to decorate their clothing. They established a mission school in Ile-à-La Crosse where Catherine was born. Andréanne’s Métis ancestor Catherine, embroidered in the « Lake Winnipeg small flower style ». This style was generally made up of tiny sinuous flowers, long leaves, and tendrils. The flowers were often rosettes, layered in shades of reds and pinks. From samples of Catherine’s embroidery, still owned by her family, Andréanne was inspired to create the design she calls Catherine’s Vine.

Spirit of The North print

The Aboriginal Plains people used Eagle feathers in ceremonies as a symbol of respect and healing.  In the Indigenous culture, the Eagle is the symbol of Love in the Seven Sacred Teachings.⁠ To the Inuit people, the Polar Bear is regarded as the embodiment of the spirit of the North, an animal that possesses ancient wisdom.⁠ In true Métis fashion, David Albert captured the beauty and essence of both, using the bold Haida style in his design to pay homage to his Indigenous West Coast cousins.⁠

La Flèche print

The Métis people helped shape the Canada of today, mainly in terms of the expansion of the west. The Métis became the link between the First Nations and their European allies, assisted by their wives who translated the native languages and helped resolve any cultural issues that arose. Métis Artist David Albert created this arrow (Flèche) to pay tribute to the trading activities between the Métis and First Nations people . The Métis were, in fact, astute business people. The flower represents the Métis, also known as the "flower beadwork people," and the arrow represents the First Nations and the connection between them.

Raven of Life print

Raven can transform himself into anything. In Native culture, the Raven is the most powerful of mythical creatures. Traditionally, he symbolises creation, transformation, it gave people fire and water, placed the trees and grass over the land and put the sun and moon in the sky. This design, by Aboriginal Métis artist David Albert, portrays the Raven becoming a branch of life.

Catherine’s Vine embroidery

The Grey Nuns first introduced silk embroidery to the Red River Métis in 1844. Métis women used silk embroidery to decorate their clothing. They established a mission school in Ile-à-La Crosse where Catherine was born. Andréanne’s Métis ancestor Catherine, embroidered in the « Lake Winnipeg small flower style ». This style was generally made up of tiny sinuous flowers, long leaves, and tendrils. The flowers were often rosettes, layered in shades of reds and pinks. From samples of Catherine’s embroidery, still owned by her family, Andréanne was inspired to create the design she calls Catherine’s Vine.

The Red River Floral Embroidery

Representing harmony and pride, The Red River Floral was derived from traditional floral beadwork which is distinctively ‘Métis’. The Métis were known as the ‘Flower Beadwork People’. This print was created by David Albert, a Métis artist from Winnipeg who merged European floral designs with The Red River traditional flower (center one) which creates a connection between culture and earth.


Northern Willow

The Aboriginal people used the bark of the willow to relieve pain and fever. They chewed or boiled a tea from the willow's leaves or inner bark to relieve fever or other minor pain like toothaches, headaches, or arthritis. The willow is often given the nickname "toothache tree".  Modern medicine has discovered that willow bark contains the medicinal extract, salicin, or salicylic acid (salix is Latin for willow). This chemical is the active ingredient in common aspirin. David Albert, a Métis artist, selected this important element of nature to create this design.

✔ If your garment is colour blocked, it’s best to always wash the garment in cold water and immediately hang or lay flat to dry

For printed and embroidered garments:

Bonus Care Tips!

Viscose from Bamboo/organic cotton is as easy to care for as any cotton t-shirt, with one exception: it is heavy when wet. Laying flat to dry when possible will help eliminate stretch, plus help conserve energy by eliminating the dryer!

We recommend washing on the delicate cycle with similar soft garments. (This means avoiding adding soft garments to loads with rough denim, metal, or Velcro.)

We recommend using Tru Earth Laundry Strips when washing your items. It’s laundry detergent that’s gentle on your skin, the environment, and your clothing.
