Neon Buddha started with the idea of producing a lifestyle clothing collection for travel, home, work, yoga and you.
The collection is designed in Canada and produced and managed by a team of 500 women in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our clothing is crafted from 100% preshrunk cotton blends.
Our team and the environment have inspired us to make products that can be well worn for life’s adventures and designed with a conscience.
Our designs inspire us as members of the global community to give back. 1% of all sales of each garment are donated to various projects to make the world a better place.
Sébastien Sirois - President
For Sébastien, it’s not enough to be a visionary entrepreneur. Having built the company on the foundations of ethical manufacturing and the values of giving, he’s constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to the treatment of staff, the environment, and the community.
Currently, thousands of Canadian-designed, ethically-made, hand-knit sweaters are produced every month. He holds a BA in International Development from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. He’s also fluent in French, English, Spanish, and Thai –– a little something he has picked up from the many countries he has travelled to and lived in over the years. Sébastien’s mission for a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle is an inspiration to his staff. His leadership approach opens the door for them to work from virtually anywhere on the planet.
As for Sébastien, Thailand is home for now. But it seems there are no limits to where the tide will take him next – as long as there is windsurfing and kite boarding nearby, of course.
We hope this tells you a little bit about our passion for our sweaters, the environment and our people.
Commitment and dedication makes each Pure HANDKNIT product a work of art.
