Since 2008

our story

Ole Originals is more than another 100% Canadian t-shirt company. We’re a group of outdoor enthusiasts who love to travel and collect experiences. No matter where we are, we celebrate where we’re from.

We feel lucky to be Canadian and we love sharing that feeling with our original retro graphics that are inspired by travel, culture, wildlife, and the places we love across Canada.

Our Roots are Here

WE ARE LOCAL

From the very beginning, Ole Originals has been all about being local and “supporting local”.

We have raised funds for the Union Gospel Mission, a charitable organization in our hometown of Vancouver, to help them provide meals and support for those struggling with homelessness and addiction.

For the last two years we have supported the North Shore Rescue, a volunteer community-based search and rescue team providing a life-saving service to the public.

YOU CAN FEEL IT

QUALITY

Believe it or not, there was a time when it was difficult to find a well-made, quality t-shirt. That’s when Ole (pronounced OLEE) was born.

All our products are hand selected for optimal quality and if you ever have any problems with an item, we’ll take care of it.

DOING IT BY HAND

THE STUDIO

In 2021 Ole Originals moved from their original cozy Cambie Street studio to the heart of brewery row in East Vancouver.

Each Ole Originals limited edition print is still hand-pulled with care on a single-head manual press but now we have more elbow room.
