We opened the doors to our shop in the west end of Toronto, Canada in April 2013 after months of planning and developing a concept that was true to our passion. We were interested in well-made goods with unique stories or a long, proven history – those high quality “standards” that everyone wants in their closet and keeps coming back to, time after time.
When opening our shop, we also launched the North Standard brand: a collection of cozy, well made goods adorned with our logo and our mascot bear. The collection was quickly adopted by our shop neighbourhood (thank you, Parkdale and Roncesvalles!) and has now spread the nation as a quality, comfort brand for the whole family.
