‘We create certified organic, fair trade clothing that is ethically made from seed to garment. We only use 100% fair trade certified cotton that provides a sustainable livelihood for Kowtow cotton producers: providing them with a living wage, social security, pension funds, house rent and medical insurance. Our fair trade production standards encourage sustainable agriculture and protection of the environment: never using genetically modified sees, conserving soil through crop rotation and controlling weeds through physical removal rather than chemical destruction. Our GOTS approved dyes are free from hazardous elements, pesticides and heavy metals.’ -- Gosia Piatek
Kowtow is a Chinese word that represents the act of deep respect, shown by kneeling and bowing so low that your head touches the ground. Founded by Gosia Piatek in 2007, with no official fashion experience, she spent a year researching ethical manufacturers and came across a company in India that only works with fair trade and organic cotton. The factory’s employees receive a fair wage and working benefits as well as a certified working environment. Combining the organic fabrication and manufacturing with GOTS approved dyes she began creating collections that were relaxed and easy to wear. The labels aesthetic is minimal, androgynous and classic which allows for the high quality fabrication to be illuminated. Effortlessly elegant, pieces often feature bold graphics and colour combinations, executed in a unique style. Constantly drawn to the roots of her brand, she is inspired by the things seen on her travels and the organic industry in which she is championing with her considered and conscious collections.
