    KOTN

    KOTN's clothes are born out of a love for one fibre: Egyptian cotton. A type of cotton that is finer, softer and more breathable than others. They work directly with farms in Egypt and guarantee the farmers a price to help them better plan against fluctuations in the market. They then work with a factory in Egypt that pays a fair wage and supports employees in developing their craft.

    Veja

    Founded in 2005 by the French pair Sébastien Kopp and François-Ghislain Morillion with a focus on reinventing how sneakers are made and sold. Neither wanted to compromise great design or social responsibility so have created a brand that pursues both. They work direct with Brazilian producers when sourcing their cotton and mutually agree a price in a 1-3 year contract. The average monthly salary in their factories is over 40% higher than the national average leading to high retention.
