Sustainable fashion: 100% certified fair trade organic cotton clothing by Kowtow


The word 'kowtow' originates from the Cantonese 'kau tau' and Mandarin Chinese 'koutou' and means 'the act of deep respect shown by kneeling and touching the ground with the forehead in worship or submission as part of Chinese custom'. Kowtow is the highest sign of reverence in East Asia. And the choice of the name speaks for itself: the brand offers - with respect to both nature and the customers - 100% fair trade organic garments with chic silhouettes in minimalist style.

'For a long time, many of our consumer habits have appeared to have no consequence. It is now quite apparent that there is an imbalance in standards of living throughout the work which is fuelled by the Wests continuing short changing and exploitation of labour markets in the so called third world. Being into clothes we decided to do something about it. Certified fair trade organic cotton clothing that is ethically and sustainably made from seed to garment', says brand's statement.
