Freed & Freed has been a staple of the Canadian clothing industry for almost a century. Their coveted experience and technological abilities have resulted in the development and manufacture of outerwear for legacy brands, big stores, and the government. The company’s commitment to produce high-quality locally-made garments has been the cornerstone to its legacy, with roughly 100 unionised employees working in the 50,000-square-foot factory today. With a debut wool line in 2014, Marissa created the company’s first in-house brand FREED. She relaunched a few years later with the present vegan and cruelty-free faux fur outerwear, accessories, and home decor brand. The unisex line is designed to be luxurious and adaptable, with a variety of brilliant colours and big styles for the whole family.
