Looking for a light jacket for the transitional period? Guess we have the perfect fit for you: Our cropped rib knit cardigan KIWU in dark grey. It features a V-neckline and a button bar and is made of 100% certified organic cotton. KIWU is named after the African lake Kivu located on the border between the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda.

100% organic cotton/ Bio-Baumwolle

Compared to conventional cotton, the cultivation of organic cotton needs 23% less water and produces only 1.2 kg instead of 3.7 kg greenhouse gas emissions. By using only natural pesticides, fertilizers and defoliants, the health of the soil is contained and the people who work in the fields are not exposed to these chemicals.   

Want to learn more about the materials we use? Head over to our materials site!

KIWU is made of organic cotton, which is sustainable and easy to take care of:

  • gentle wash up to 30°C
  • use mild or color detergent
  • use a washing bag to protect the garment from zippers (and other mean things) being in the same washing machine
  • no softener
  • iron on low to medium temperature

Slim fit. Our model Mary is 1,71m tall and wears size S.

KIWU

1. design

Our founders Anna and Jula still do all of the design work themselves. They are mastering that challenge, despite living in two different countries. Luckily they're pros at long-distance teamwork.

So the design process is split between Hamburg and Dubai.

2. raw material

Since the average cotton production is a pretty dirty business, we only use organic and recycled cotton.
If you wanna know more about the ecological benefits, compared to regular cotton, click here.

The cotton is grown in India.

3. yarn production

No matter which fibers we are talking about, they have to be spun into a yarn for further production steps. 

The yarn production takes place in India.

4. fabric production

The next step of our Supply Chain is to weave the yarn into a fabric. 
The fabric production is located in Barcelos, Portugal.

5. manufacturing

That's where all the magic happens!
Our manufacturers receive the patterns, fabrics, and other components like buttons or zippers and make them into a garment.

This piece is made in Barcelos, Portugal.

6. distribution 

As some of you may remember, we used to do the shipping and warehouse management in our Headquarter in Hamburg by ourselves - yes, that was a lot of work! 

Since 2020 we are working with our amazing logistics partner Livipur, which is located in Bad Homburg, Germany
