Neon Buddha started with the idea of producing a lifestyle clothing collection for travel, home, work, yoga and you.

The collection is designed in Canada by Shannon Passero and produced and managed by a team of 500 women in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Our clothing is crafted from 100% preshrunk cotton blends.

Our team and the environment have inspired us to make products that can be well worn for life’s adventures and designed with a conscience.

Our designs inspire us as members of the global community to give back. 1% of all sales of each garment are donated to various projects to make the world a better place.

Neon Buddha’s ethical work standards are fundamental and at the forefront of our management strategy. All of our staff has company paid health care including maternity leave. Education is also a focus of ours. We offer paid continuing education which includes free English classes for all staff, their family and friends. Currently we have 2 staff completing their master’s degree.

During the season any excess fabric is donated to several non-governmental organizations and women’s groups where it is used in income generating projects.

With the environment on our minds Neon Buddha is looking to incorporate sustainable practices into the collection. Currently, both the Canadian head office and our Thai facility use solar power to heat domestic hot water. Extra insulation has also been installed into the buildings to keep the staff cool in Thailand and warm in Canada. All paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and metal are recycled. At our warehouse dozens of trees have been planted for shade and green spaces have been created for our staff to enjoy and to offset our carbon foot print.
