Have you ever seen something and instantly said to yourself wow, I need this!
That was my exact reaction when I first saw these "Home is Canada" tees that I decided to add them immediately into my wish list.
Knowing I could twin with my little boy, I was beyond happy because I don't get the opportunity to do it very often.
Our little family has been living in this beautiful country for 6 years next week, yay! and I have to confess I feel we are truly Canadians.
This week, Local Love is dedicated to Peace Collective, a Toronto-based company that is making streetware simply magical.
This cool indie Canadian brand created a cute line of graphic tees and jackets for women, men and now kids in collaboration with
Mini Mioche, which we absolutely adore.
Besides their stunning branding and faultless design, Peace Collective has devoted their efforts to an amazing philanthropical work, creating their own foundation The Peace Foundation making a big difference helping Canadian communities donating $4 into the program "Breakfast for Learning" for every garment sold.
Helping fight hunger, this brand is giving a child two meals and one healthy snack, showing that community involvement is the top priority.
If you didn't know about this local brand, I had the chance to ask them how everything started a few years back.
- Tell us a bit about this lovely idea, Peace Collective
The brand started in 2015 here in Toronto when Yanal, the founder, decided he wanted to create a way to give back to the community. He didn’t know exactly how he wanted do it but he knew giving back had to be incorporated into whatever business venture he’d take part in.

|Thank you, Peace Collective|
I'm so proud of twinning with my little ones and show to the world that our home is Canada (:
Ps. Thank you for the photos, Instagram husband!
