Roots was founded in 1973 by Michael Budman and Don Green, two city kids who met at summer camp in Ontario’s Algonquin Park. Inspired by the experience of traveling from their city homes into the heart of Canada’s wilderness, they created Roots.

We offer a broad range of products, including women’s and men’s apparel, leather goods, footwear, accessories, and kids, toddler and baby apparel.

From our early beginnings in a little cabin in Algonquin Park, we have grown into a global brand. We have more than 100 company-operated stores across Canada, two in the United States and an eCommerce platform that ships to more than 60 countries worldwide. We also have more than 100 partner-operated stores and leading third-party retail sites that sell Roots products in Asia.
