Who Are We?

Who We Are: Redwood Classics Apparel

For three generations of textile excellence, we have strived to provide our customers with the highest level of quality available. Our success in meeting this goal has captured the attention of high end retailers across the country. Our garments are seen across North America, in department stores, retail stores, resorts, universities or corporate identity programs.

The majority of our stock styles feature flatlock stitching which weaves in an extra thread to provide greater strength and durability. Our fabrics are top of the line and the difference will be appreciated upon first touch. Our garments are either pre-shrunk or garment washed to stay true to size.

As a full-service provider, we have vertically integrated every aspect of the production process. From the fabric we stock, to cutting, sewing, private labeling, dyeing, washing, embroidery, screen printing, packing and shipping; our entire process combines traditional, handcrafted practices with state of the art technology and computerization.

Redwood Classics is a proud member of the Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI). Our Founder and President Kathy Cheng is also a member of the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women Class of 2014 (EY), an elite group of dynamic women entrepreneurs selected to join a network of the country's best high-growth companies.

In our continuing effort to strengthen a nationwide movement toward a more equitable, globally responsible industry, we are thrilled to be a member of the Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC). Thanks to CAMSC, Aboriginal and minority-owned businesses are provided links to purchasing opportunities at major corporations across Canada and the United States through the promotion and facilitation of supplier diversity. Ultimately, the marketplace experiences equitable distribution of wealth, the creation of employment opportunities, and creation of an expanded customer base. Now that's something we can stand for.

In 2020, we expanded our innovative offerings even further with Social Textiles (www.socialtextiles.com), our Toronto-based, sustainable apparel printing company. Social Textiles empowers makers to produce apparel consciously through custom, on-demand printing with low minimums, helping to minimize over-production and keep textiles out of our landfills.
