Know The Origin Organic Cotton Black Zip Hoodie

    • 100% Organic and Fairtrade cotton
    • Cut and sewn in a factory paying their tailors a living wage


    KTO's hoodie is made with Fairtrade and Organic cotton with a super soft fleece interior.  Great for everyday wear and layering up with a tee, it has a YKK zipper and contrast herringbone woven cotton drawstrings.  Super comfy and made for all seasons, rain or shine (especially when you live in the UK).

    Please Note: Due to the un-treated nature of this fabric, please allow for a little shrinkage on first wash.

    Social

    KTO have personally visited every section of their supply chain. The cotton is organic and Fairtrade, they use two suppliers Chetna Organic Farming Co-op or Pratibha Syntex. Chetna is an 100% farmer owned co-operative and they provide training on food security so farmers can grow crops alongside cotton.


    - The cotton knitting is done at RCM and Shakthi Knitting both factories have a subsidised canteen and transport for their employees.

    - This garment was cut and sewn in Mila, they ensure that all of their tailors are paid a living wage and are treated with the utmost respect.

    - Use of organic cotton means that pickers aren’t exposed to harmful chemicals

    - Use of Fairtrade cotton means that farmers are given a fair and stable price for their cotton

    Environmental

    - KTO use Global Organic Textile Standard dyes which don’t contain toxic metals and are azo-free. Their products are dyed at Mahadev fabrics and Shakthi Knitting. Mahadev ensure that all wastewater from the dye process is filtered to clean it of all chemicals. It’s then recycled for use again in agricultural irrigation in the surrounding area. Shakthi also have an impressive filtration system that links to the entire plant, enabling them to filter all the dye water that passes through. 95% of all the water used is then re-used for running the factory and continuing its production processes. The remaining 5% is evaporated and any remnants from the dye process are used to make bricks and for laying roads.
