My Ol' Blues is a small apparel manufacturing company in Northern Ontario, Canada. Founded by owner and designer Kathryn M. Antonio in November 1993, My Ol' Blues operated out of basements in Sudbury and Espanola before permanently relocating to Gore Bay on beautiful Manitoulin Island. We have a 2000 square-foot production facility which includes storefront at 7 Phipps Street that services our year-round local customers in addition to seasonal and first-time visitors to Manitoulin Island.
Kathryn has spent years honing her craft despite having no credentials in design and specializes in an assortment of comfortable, eco-friendly, Canadiana themed clothing. All designs are then patterned, cut, sewn, and packaged in-house by a talented team.
My Ol' Blues has wholesaled from our Gore Bay location to over 300 stores across Canada and border states for 27 years. We sell direct to consumers and to independent retailers who appreciate Canadian-made products and the ability to order small quantities and short turn-around orders to suit their customer base. We also with work with companies and organizations to create garments and accessories unique to their group.
