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. 


Organic Cotton: Grown in Turkey (GOTS certified)
Fabric: Spun in Turkey (GOTS)
Shorts: Cut and sewn in Turkey (GOTS and GRS certified)

worker conditions

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.

environmental impact

Organic cotton protects the environment and also farmers who may suffer ill health when coming into contact with the intensive fertilisers and pesticides used in conventional cotton production. 

These shorts are made from recycled nylon. Studies have shown that recycled nylon produces less CO2 than conventional nylon. Recycling nylon also keeps this slow to break down material out of landfills.

These shorts are made to last! Making a product that will stand the test of time is a hugely important aspect of sustainable design.
