Lululemon was founded by Chip Wilson in 1998 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Lululemon is a line of yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel for both women and men. The company started as a design studio by day and a yoga studio by night. In 2000, it became a standalone store on West 4th Avenue in the Kitsilano neighbourhood of Vancouver.

The vision for the store was to create more than a store, the founders wanted it to be a community hub where people could gather to discuss aspects of healthy living and mindfulness. Today, this is still an important part of every lululemon store across the globe.

Lululemon garments are widely available online and in-store across Canada and various other countries.
