At the forefront of Main Street's growing reputation as a design Mecca, this quirky Mount Pleasant clothing boutique stocks locally made art-house designs with Socialist tendencies. Providing 'design for the masses,' Motherland and its sister store next door sell house-brand contemporary sportswear and graphic T-shirts made in Canada. (80% of the clothing offered for sale at Motherland is made in Vancouver, and virtually all of it is Canadian in design.) Reasonably priced, Motherland's ultra-popular silk-screened T-shirts sport the uber-hip messaging the under-25 set finds irresistible.
Don't be surprised to find Soviet-themed imagery on some of the clothing. Motherland began as an homage to Socialism.
