Pepita is a fabric pattern with a characteristic small, two-colour check weave. The origin of the term is most commonly ascribed to the Spanish dancer Pepita, who liked to wear this pattern; another theory claims it is derived from the Spanish "pepitas" - a fruit pip or the dark seed of the cotton plant (which is reflected in this pattern). Either way the fabric makes a smart pair of shorts. KCA's are made with organic cotton in a loose fit. They have an elastic waistband, adjustable cords, and button closure. The shorts are finished with slanted front pockets, discrete back pockets, and belt straps. Nature loving Danish designers Knowledge Cotton Apparel make low impact clothing for both the hike and the bar after.

The Goodwill Fabrics group is a family-owned business with two weaving factories in Bhilwara and Gwalior in North India, and four garment factories in Bangalore, in South India. Goodwill employ around 2000 people and are committed to several certifications to ensure fair working conditions, including BSCI and SA8000.
To ensure social responsibility, KCA establishes long term relationships with carefully selected suppliers. In addition to KCA’s own supplier visits, they rely on third-party certification. Social compliance is a part of GOTS that each production step in the supply chain must comply with. This gives KCA the opportunity to ensure that social standards are met throughout their supply chain and not only with their direct supplier.
In addition to GOTS, KCA seeks out suppliers that have been third-party certified by SA8000, BSCI and Fairtrade.
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.
