Manufacturing and Subsidiaries

Although Lululemon designs its clothing in Canada, all manufacturing and production is done overseas in international factories. Lululemon ensures that each factory undergoes strict screening and inspection before being selected to manufacture their products. However, seventy percent of Lululemon's clothing is manufactured in developing countries and founder Chip Wilson controversially publicly defends the practice of child forced labor and sweatshops (Deegan).

Lululemon recently opened its first subsidiary, Ivivva Athletica, which is a dance and gymnastics inspired clothing line for young girls ages 6-14. Ivivva is currently run by Lululemon, however Ivivva has opened 15 of its own stores in Canada and currently has 5 showrooms in the United States.
