Candice Levine is a maker of things who hails from Toronto. In the 90’s Candice earned a B.A. in philosophy from the University of Western Ontario and a degree in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design, NYC.
And so, in 2001 after years of making pretty things, Candice was in a rut- her undies were up her butt!
Not one to shrug it off, she got to work and created The Candi Factory, a company based on perfect fit and fun without a filter. But it's her commitment to quality and serious comfort that keeps thousands of ladies happy and floss-free all day long.
Since the gals got to have such great underpants, it was only a matter of time before the guys wanted in. So after the great banana debate (you know, what colour should the banana image be on the briefs?) the Man Briefs were created with equal amounts of chutzpah and practicality.
Candice's husband and partner, Shreve, is the guy you may speak to if you call. His invaluable contribution to all things technical helps the studio run smoothly. He may be the nicest person we know.
Their 2 young sons try to help with the business, mostly by requesting more pirate themed underwear.
All of our Underpants and Man Briefs are proudly sewn locally in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
