This season we welcome New Zealand based clothing label Kowtow (pronounced Ko-toe) to Monk House Design.

With a focus on ethical practices, Kowtow follows all aspects of fair trade in their manufacturing, trade and materials. Each garment is made with 100% organically produced fabrics dyed to the highest quality, embodying Kowtow’s signature individuality and clean lines.

 Their AW17 collection 'Dreamscape' is influenced by the nautical, utilitarian clothing worn by people in folk fishing villages reminiscent of ocean themes present throughout films of Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry. 

 "This season sees a play on proportions, pops of colour, layering, and the evolution of new fabrics such as chambray softened drill, quilting and a bespoke check all entirely made from ethical organic cotton from seed to garment.”
