Most wonderful ethical clothing store to ever exist, feeling like a modern day hippie with confidence flowing.

Loving my new Tempol top ! I own four of them now (or more like eight since they're reversible 😍) and I'm proud to say they're the only non-thrifted clothing items l've bought over the last two, maybe even three years.

But I believe they're made from recycled silk so it's still technically second-hand ♻️

Looking forward to wearing them on my travels. They always bring out the inner goddess ✨

Tempol is my absolute favourite store for clothing and accessories, everytime I visit Ottawa from Toronto, I go out of my way to make sure a visit to the shop is incorporated into my trip. Immediately you feel inspired when you step foot into the shop, as you are surrounded by a carefully curated collection of unique and beautiful clothing, handbags, jewelry, home accessories and more. Not only is the clothing Fair Trade, hand made, sustainable, high quality, affordable and gorgeous (so many prints and styles to choose from), but also very comfortable! Every experience and purchase I've had from Tempol over the years has been so wonderful! - Liza

Obsessed is an understatement when it comes to how much I'm into shopping at Tempol! I love all the beautiful fabrics and patterns available and the one size fits all nature to most of their wrap clothing. The selection and quality of the pieces here cannot be beat. I get compliments consistently on my outfits and always send people in Tempol's direction. Happy to recommend this lovely store to anyone!

Beautiful, colourful, affordable, comfortable clothing. Also, theres superfunky jewellery, accessories and textiles. Salespeople are always lovely. The store smells like magic. Only drawback is it's hard to leave.
