A Rad Store's Dictionary


Luna+Hill focuses on quality made goods. Everything we sell in the shop meets at least one of these definitions but usually hits 2 or 3.

Local

Well, obviously for us this means Saskatoon. But in a province and country as big as ours it also can mean towns and cities just few inches away on the map. Buying and shopping local is a movement to try to support the producers, artisans and that are a little closer to home. It helps local economies and the environment. So please please please support local independent retailers and artisans!

American-made

Made in America. Just expand local (SEE: 'Local') to America.

Canadian-made

Made in Canada. Just expand local (SEE: 'Local') to Canada.

Charitable

Generous giving of money or other help to people in need. Giving is good, lend a hand to someone in need it will make your heart feel good.

Deadstock

Leftover fabric no longer produced by textile mills. Major clothing manufactures will produce hundreds of millions of yards of fabric to mass produce their clothes but when the styles change they no longer need this fabric. It sits in a warehouse for as many as 40 years without purpose and is likely destined for a landfill when its not worth the cost to store it. Many companies are now repurchasing the deadstock to make new and fresh clothes. This means that the pieces made from deadstock you purchase today were perhaps originally manufactured years ago for companies like Levi Strauss or Wrangler.

Fair Trade

Fair Trade is a different way of doing business. It's about making principles of fairness and decency mean something in the marketplace. It seeks to change the terms of trade for the products we buy to ensure the farmers and artisans behind those products get a fair deal. Most often this is understood to mean better prices for producers, but it often means longer-term and more meaningful trading relationships as well. For consumers and businesses, it's also about information. Fair Trade is a way for all of us to identify products that meet our values so we can make choices that have a positive impact on the world.


Hand-made

Made by hand, not by machine. Yah, once upon a time, things we’re made by hand, with care and love.

Organic

The mainstream method of cultivating cotton has major impact on the environment. However, there is huge potential for improving the situation, and choosing organically grown cotton is one way to make a difference. Organic cotton is grown from seeds that aren’t genetically engineered and in soil that has been certified free from pesticides, herbicides and other cancer causing toxins. Purchasing organic products is good stewardship; it helps you and everyone by preserving and sustaining the quality of our air, water, food and land for current and future generations. At a production stage, the spinning, dyeing and finishing of yarn is carried out in accordance with organic procedures.

Quality sh!t

It means the stuff you buy is going to last so long that your childrens’ children will think its vintage and wanna wear it, you’d better care for it right. It’s a word that can be used in place of, "awesome," "cool," "groovy," "rad," "fly," or any other words to describe something you find amazing. “That sh!t’s quality!”

Rad

An abbreviation of 'radical', a term made popular by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Really cool but in a more subtle way, as opposed to extreme or awesome. Its pretty much one of the highest compliments you can give someone of something. Being rad is like being cool without having to work for it. It's like a natural coolness.

Recycled

Cotton fibers actually last much longer than we normally tend to use or wear them. The recycling process takes old denim and cotton garments, or scrap material from the production line, and cuts them into small pieces that are milled downed into a cotton like pulp. This pulp is then used to manufacture new yarn and used to weave new fabrics. Now isn't that better than just throwing it in the garbage! But recycled also includes, hand-me-downs, fabulous vintage finds and your favorite second-hand shop.

 

Sustainable

Methods of harvesting, producing or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged. This means that our children’s children’s children will be able to enjoy the same things we do today because we didn’t use it all up.
