Natural Fiber Clothing For Everyday Wear
Downtown Betty is a natural fiber clothing and Beach Lifestyle Company created by Katie Quinn. The clothing line was started from scratch in 2005 in Vancouver, BC; the beautiful coastal city of beaches.
Our ethical activewear roots are in the Pacific North West but they naturally trail throughout the world. Over the years, Downtown Betty has gathered like-minded concepts and products that consciously tread lightly on the planet, while enjoying the very best of our only home.
Each piece of our eco clothing line is ideal to wear while enjoying bike rides, sunny days on the beach, practising yoga in your heart & soul, going on forest walks, eating healthy organic foods, surfing waves, skimming the tidal pools and jumping in puddles. These are just a few things we love in life that have influenced our brand.
Biodegradable Natural Fiber Fabrics
We pride ourselves on keeping our clothing as natural as we possibly can. Each garment is made with 95% cotton (organic where we can) and just enough Lycra (5%) to ensure comfort during yoga, exercise and long wear times. That’s why Downtown Betty is soooo comfortable to wear.
Cotton is one of the easiest fabrics to decompose, making our garments are 95% biodegradable and able to compost under 6 months (in appropriate conditions).

Zero Waste Life & Home
sustainability is at the core of everything we do; starting with our most natural fiber fabrics—which are 95% biodegradable. We hand-cut every item, leaving very little waste for the landfill, and are always on the lookout to add more Zero-Waste Life & Home products from like-minded brands!
Ethical Fashion At Its Finest
We choose natural fibers for our products that are a blend of Organic Cotton/Lycra, Cotton/Lycra, or Bamboo/Cotton/Lycra.
The products are designed, hand-cut to order and made with love in Vancouver, BC by a local collective community! Our clothes and accessories are in people’s closets or on their bodies—not in a huge warehouse.
Downtown Betty’s natural fiber clothing is for active, outdoor people, with their finger on the pulse of real-life fashion. The perfect eco yoga wear!
As Downtown Betty is ever-evolving, research and development led us to India, Bali and back to Vancouver, Canada; expanding our story, while living the casual glamour life—dialled and styled.
Live brightly and tread lightly,
