About us


The shop Passions d'Ailleurs is located at 466 Main street, Magog, Quebec, Canada, J1X 2A9. Since 2001 under the ownership of Developpement Synergie Inc. Thérèse Gagné is the President General Director, assisted by her son, Eric Gagné, responsible for e-com and whole sales services. Thérèse had worked in Vietnam from 1998 to 2001 and developed very good relationship with many vietnameses. After return to Canada, she started importation of goods from Vietnam in fair trade, and after many years, she developed clothing collection with Vietnamese and Canadian designers, based on a chart of canadian measurements. After operating many shops in Montreal, she opened in 2007 a shop in Magog city.

Our bamboo-cotton collection 'Passions d'Ailleurs' is made in Vietnam by tailors in a small workshop (not industrial). The tailors are paid more than workers in industries and are working in good conditions: clean and safe environment, clear light with good tools for working...They are no child working in the workshop. 

Our collection is customized based on specific Canadian measurements (XS to XXL or 6 to 16) and for some models (1X and 2 X or 18 to 22) tested for years in our shop in Magog city, Quebec. The natural fabrick (50% bamboo-50% cotton) is machine washable (delicate cycle in cold water), no need for ironing after washing. All items are pre-washed before packing and shipping. Bamboo will give softness and stability to the fabrick. Several stylists are working on the design for building a collection which many models should fit to all Canadian women, according to their morphology.

For each model, we propose different colors available in stocks. If you want any models in an available color, out of stock, please contact us, we will be pleased to deliver it to you in a reasonable delay.
