Our Story

Originating from Toronto, a city well known for its multiculturalism, Freedom 83 took its first steps into the world of high quality apparel in 2016, focusing on streetwear. Committed to bringing to life a vision and delivering a message, the brand holds strong roots in culture and activism.

Freedom takes on many meanings and what it represents to each individual, will always remain inherently unique.  For some though, freedom meant fleeing their native country during times of war and seeking refuge elsewhere to escape the turmoil. Freedom 83 pays homage to the victims of the Sri Lankan civil war, which began in 1983. Finding Freedom since 1983, is a phrase coined by the brand to represent those fleeing and seeking safety.

The streetwear brand embodies every aspect of freedom, by creating designs that make a bold statement while remaining fashion-forward. Each design is created with passion and immaculate attention to detail from ethically-sourced materials that support locals. For every apparel purchase made, a portion of the proceeds is donated to various charities helping to educate youth. Freedom 83 upholds, with great regard, the principle of educating youth with the necessary skills to navigate the real world.

Independently owned and operated, Freedom 83’s work ethic and dedication remains unwavering, as it is committed to delivering top of the line clothing. Freedom 83 continues to stay true to its roots and seek collaborative growth in a dynamic world, as together we are #CollectivelyUnbreakable.
