Ecologyst started life as Sitka, following the path of many other Canadian businesses, making their goods offshore. However, they came to realize that they were not living up to their environmental values and subsequently brought their production to Victoria, British Columbia.

According to Rene Gauthier, the founder of the company, Ecologyst follows some simple principles. All the clothes are designed to last so that can be passed on to future generations. The company never uses more resources than necessary and uses natural fibres that are easily returned to earth if necessary. Ecologyst is also committed to sharing what they have learned and using what they have built to produce goods for several clothing brands.
