Meet Eden Sloss - The Founder of Original Canvas

Eden Sloss is the Creative Director and founder of Original Canvas, a sustainable and ethical apparel brand based in Christchurch, NZ.

Always intrigued by fashion, but never one to regularly shop; Eden’s journey began at Otago Polytechnic in the South Island of New Zealand, where she completed her degree in Fashion Design. Eden spent her first two years learning the various ways in which the fashion industry was contributing to destroying the earth’s natural resources, and generating increasing amounts of waste. She knew there was a need for change. Her final year was spent researching sustainable clothing materials to create NZ natural clothing.

Eden made her first collection of environmentally sustainable clothing using hemp textiles. From here on out, this was the only option. Sustainable clothing, ethically made, utilising nature's greatest gift, hemp.
