ETHICALLY PRODUCED SUSTAINABLE BASICS.
New Zealand // Founded by Gosia Piatek - 2007
In 2007, with little experience and know-how, Gosia Piatek and her partner started Kowtow, an ethical and sustainable fashion business on a mere $5,000 grant from the government. Though that small amount of start-up did not stretch more than two weeks, their passion has allowed the company to grow to what it is today. Kowtow is a New Zealand based company making ethically produced and sustainable basics. They utilize 100% fair trade and organic cotton as well as ethically sound labor and production. Their signature is the traveling seam featured on their tees, which are all 100% cotton, with a surprising stretch and soft hand.
