Latest offering from Kowtow delivers the best in fabrics with colour splicing that is hard to miss! Eclectic colours such as Peony, Bright Green and Red are diffused with Blacks, Greys and Gingham to bring you a collection that runs the gamut of diverse tastes and styles to suit many bodies and lifestyles. Featuring all sustainably and ethically sourced materials which make up the textiles used in the collection, everything from the fibre content to finishings like buttons and tacks have been rigorously considered to deliver the best - in fashion and sustainable practice.
They make a point of mentioning on their website that as designers “we are accountable for the entire lifetime of a garment” That is a pretty cool approach we think! In an ideal world most labels would have sustainability in mind, however, sometimes it's not always possible. Kowtow makes the impossible, possible - and treats restrictions as opportunities to push design ideas further and innovate in this space. Kowtow only uses organic cotton, which forms the basis of each seasons collection. All fabrics have been processed using Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) approved inks and dyes, which are free from chlorine bleach, toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde and aromatic solvents. This process is free from harmful substances and ensures sustainable use and treatment of water. Kowtow uses GOTS approved washes for each organic cotton garment from lightweight jersey to denim. This means any garment you purchase from Kowtow has been thought through down to its minor details, founded in 2006 by Gosia Piatek, Kowtow is a label committed to creating positive change. The label consciously chooses to use only renewable and sustainable fibres and ethical manufacturing when designing, producing and distributing their clothing.
Creating a large metaphorical tick on everything Kowtow does, its not only the journey of the garment to our store that is so special - it's the pieces themselves. Artfully designed to flatter and form around a wide range of bodies pieces from the latest collection do not disappoint! We have the Tee Shirt Swing Dress in Black, which is a A full-length t-shirt dress made from 100% mid-weight organic cotton jersey, featuring an a-line shape, wide ribbed neck, kowtows signature twisted side seams and comes with a removable, woven belt so you can wear loose or form fitting. A great work week outfit, the Tee Shirt Swing Dress will have you ready and out the door in no time! Also in the mix is the Classic Tee in Peony, almost from another time the bright pink Peony colour is a great reminder that sometimes its nice, or maybe necessary to deviate from the routine, to change things up a bit and go for something a little more punchy. To aid that quest we also have the Composure Cardigan in Red (also in Navy) made form 100% organic cotton this rib textured wrap cardigan is a great everyday go- to during the cooler months when a pull over just won’t do!
