Why the name Laundromat?
Guarding your favourite clothing from fashion thieves (be they roommates, fellow students, siblings or strangers) can be extremely challenging. Like hundreds of other students, company owner, Francis Dubé, spent many long hours in the university laundromat keeping watch over his most prized articles of clothing. Years later, when searching for a unique way to market his knitwear, Francis thought back to the university laundromat. He thought of those dedicated students, who would study, chit-chat, and mill around while guarding their favourite stuff, lest it should disappear. Our hope is that you will come to love your Laundromat woolens so much, that you will grant them equal love and protection.
