Long term supplier relationships 

Knowledge Cotton Apparel Wide Fit Corduroy Shorts footprint


Karamans Tekstil is based in Istanbul and has been running since 1995. It has a team of a hundred employees and aims to produce high quality and fair clothing. 

KCA have worked with their Turkish manufacturing partners since the brand was founded in 2008 and visit them on a regular basis.

These shorts are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. All stages of production from fibre growers to processors and manufacturers are audited and must have systems in place to ensure social criteria based on the key norms of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) are met.


Organic cotton helps farmers escape the health risks and financial burden of toxic chemicals involved in conventional cotton production. It also helps wider communities by maintaining (rather than draining) the local water supply and keeping it clean.

Knowledge Cotton Apparel's second and third tier suppliers (fabrics and raw materials) are based in the same geographical region as products are cut and sewn. This reduces the carbon footprint of their products compared to other fashion supply chains where inputs often cross back and forth around the world. 


Country of origin


Cut and sewn: Karamans Tekstil, Izmir, Turkey (GOTS)

Areas For Development

GOTS living wage policy currently only requires that national legal standards are met. We'd love to see KCA collaborate with an organisation like the Fair Wear Foundation to advance the complex topic of a real living wage for garment workers.
