THE ETHICS

The Brand Story

Know The Origin was founded by Charlotte Instone in 2015 with the aim to transform the fashion industry. Charlotte was inspired to start KTO after finding that the lack of transparency within fashion supply chains had led to abuses of human rights and environmental degradation worldwide. 


Through developing strong relationships with incredible organic and fairtrade producers across India, Know The Origin shows people that fashion can, and should, be done differently. KTO respects people and the environment at every stage of the supply chain from cotton farming to final factory with traceability and high ethical standards at the heart of their work.

Organic Cotton

The Organic Cotton is Fairtrade certified. This ensures that farmers get a fair and stable price for their crop. The Fairtrade premium also supports local communities, improves schools, creates safe drinking water and organises women’s self-help groups.
