The Ethics

This garment is cut & sewn in Mila, a Fairtrade and GOTS certified factory in South India, everybody working there is paid above a living wage and treated with upmost respect.

Lenzing Modal® is a man-made material from beech tree pulp. The beechwood is from sustainably managed forests primarily based in Austria, where the fibre is made.

Know The Origin started using modal as they are always looking for materials that provide an eco alternative to organic cotton. The yield of beechwood cellulose is two times higher than from a cotton field, therefore in this way it is a more eco-friendly alternative to organic cotton.

Know The Origin use Global Organic Textile Standard dyes, they don’t contain toxic metals and are azo-free.

Ethical Developments

Know The Origin currently use plastic packaging when shipping from India to the UK to protect their garments, they would like to find a suitable alternative to reduce their use of plastic.
