Born in Toronto, Crafted for You.
Founded by Stefanie, a McMaster University graduate, Original Genes emerged from her desire to escape the 9-5 grind and embrace creativity. A passion for painting led her to hand-paint a denim jacket one day, sparking a journey that's uniquely Original Genes.
From those beginnings, OG has been featured on platforms like Cityline and Breakfast Television.
Each OG jacket is a personal canvas, crafted one-on-one with customers for an exclusive touch. Our commitment to sustainability shines through, as most pieces are upcycled, turning preloved clothing into stunning art.
The OG experience has expanded to virtual workshops, sharing creative insights and artistry across different mediums. Stefanie's expertise has resonated with Fortune 500 companies and prestigious brands. We understand the world's clothing waste issue, so we're passionate about our eco-friendly approach, offering solutions that echo our commitment to a better planet.
