Hello!

I'm Rae- I'm a Queer, non-binary femme (they/them, please!), living on Unceded Kanien’kehá:ka territory in Montreal, Quebec. I run this one-person show, Origami Customs. It's a line of handmade, customized lingerie, swimwear and activewear, made for anybody and gender. Welcome, I'm glad you found me. 

I work with input from my community to create products to better serve others within my community, both in-person and online

 
My background in swimsuit design came from when I lived in Honduras as a SCUBA diver. When my friends and I couldn't find swimsuits to fit or that would stand up to being in the water every day, I decided to put my sewing skills to the test and create my own. I opened a beachwear store there, and eventually expanded to lingerie while moving back to Canada.
 

Here's what you need to know:

 

My products benefit those who can't buy off the rack, for one of many reasons. Because everything is made to measure, you can send your measurements for a perfect fit. See the FAQ and Fit Guide for more info
 
My items are made in any size, with no price difference or size cap
 
Any item can be made for any gender. There are also lots of options specifically for people on the Trans Spectrum (check out our Gender Diverse FAQ), but I will change the products to suit your needs
 
I run this business as ethically as possible, using industry excess, organic and sustainable fabrics 
 
Custom orders always include free alterations if they don't fit perfectly
 
I work with many organizations in ongoing partnerships to provide gender-affirming gear to those who don't have access to it
 
You can always send me your own ideas to have something completely unique made for you!
