OUR CONSCIOUS PROMISE

KITX PROMISES TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF SUSTAINABLE DESIGNER FASHION GLOBALLY, BY CONSCIOUSLY SOURCING EVERY MATERIAL AND COMPONENT. THIS ETHOS GOES INTO EVERY DESIGN WE CREATE TO MINIMISE THE IMPACT ON OUR PLANET’S NATURAL PRECIOUS RESOURCES.

WE ARE COMMITTED TO BEING AN EXAMPLE OF TRUE STYLE FOR THE MODERN GLOBAL ERA, WE SIMPLY DON'T BELIEVE IN QUALITY WITHOUT HONESTY AND INTEGRITY.

MATERIALS

OUR POSITIONING ON ETHICAL AND ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIAL SOURCING IS BASED ON TWO FUNDAMENTAL PRE-REQUISITES:

  • TRACEABILITY CERTIFIED ORGANIC, RENEWABLE NATURAL, AND RECYCLED 'MANMADE' FIBERS SOURCED FROM FULLY TRACEABLE AND FAIR TRADE SUPPLIERS WHO ADHERE TO GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS.
  • NON HAZARDOUS WORKING WITH MATERIALS WHOSE MANUFACTURE AND PROCESSING IS NOT DAMAGING OR CONTAMINATING THE PLANET’S NATURAL RESOURCES. THIS ALSO INCLUDES THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF THE WORKERS WHO ARE FARMING, HANDLING OUR PRODUCTION AND THE END LIFE PHASE OF THE GARMENT’S LIFE CYCLE.

FOR INSTANCE, WE CHOOSE ORGANIC COTTON, FROM NATURAL COTTON SEEDS WITHOUT CHEMICALS, OVER COTTON THAT IS GROWN USING GENETICALLY MODIFIED COTTON SEEDS WITH TOXIC INSECTICIDES AND PESTICIDES. THIS CHOICE ENSURES CLEAN WATER IS MAINTAINED, THE HEALTH OF WORKERS IS PROTECTED, LAND QUALITY AND BIODIVERSITY ARE NOT AFFECTED. 

KITX IS CONTINUOUSLY SEARCHING FOR INNOVATIVE WAYS TO FURTHER REDUCE OUR IMPACT AND PARTNER WITH SUPPLIERS WHO ARE EXEMPLARY IN THEIR APPROACH TO SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL WELLBEING.

FASHION MILEAGE PER STYLE

BY DESIGNING WITH INTEGRITY AND WITH THE FUTURE IN MIND KITX IS COMMITTED TO CREATING MODERN AND SEDUCTIVE DESIGN LED FASHION THAT HAS HIGH FREQUENCY DESIRABILITY, LONGEVITY AND 'MEND-ABILITY' RATHER THAN CREATING SHORT LIVED DISPOSABLE FASHION.

GARMENT AFTER CARE

WE SUPPORT OUR CUSTOMERS TO REDUCE THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT BY ENCOURAGING THEM TO –

MACHINE OR HAND WASH IN COLD WATER AND ECO DRY CLEANING ONLY.

MINIMIZE WASHING GARMENTS THAT CONTAIN SYNTHETIC FIBRES (POLYESTER, NYLON, POLYPROPYLENE AND ACRYLIC) AS THEY SHED PLASTIC FILAMENTS INTO OUR OCEANS ADDING TO THE 6.3 BILLION TONNES OF PLASTIC WASTE THAT ALREADY EXISTS.

GARMENT MANUFACTURE TRANSPARENCY

AS A DESIGNER BRAND WE CARE DEEPLY AND TAKE PRIDE IN THE MANUFACTURING PARTNERS WHO BRING OUR VISIONS TO REALITY. WE CHOOSE TO WORK ONLY WITH SEWING AND FINISHING CONTRACTORS WHO ARE COMMITTED TO QUALITY AND HUMAN DECENCY WITHIN THEIR OPERATIONS.
