Embrace your own culture & learn about others

The inspiration

Start-ups and local businesses tend to involve the community around them either by the idea they’re promoting or by just trying to showcase something new in the environment they’re in. Canada as a whole fortunately has a very diverse community within it specifically in certain cities like Toronto or Ottawa which is why an idea aiming to help discover each other’s culture is quickly welcomed and embraced.

IAMFROM is one of those ideas, founded by “MON AMI” the main purpose here as per his mission statement is to bring out our cultural values, promote respect for diversity and encourage us to tell more about our background, culture by sharing and also learning about other cultures surrounding us. He does this by creating country custom clothing, a collection of either hats, shirts, bathing suits that have the flag of the person who wears it.

The take over

 This company which originated in Ottawa definitely took the city by storm and even made rounds internationally with highly known entertainers pictured wearing clothing that represented the country they were from.

Without a doubt the IAMFROM collection is only the tip of the iceberg for this designer, as he works on upcoming designs and concepts we can’t wait to see what he produces next.Make sure to keep checking our blog to keep up with latest news concerning the MON AMI.
