Sustainability

We founded KIN so we can become part of the solution by creating an earth-friendly alternative in fashion. We will always be committed to creating goods while making a positive impact on the environment and our community. As we grow as a brand, so do our efforts – our goal is to always limit our impact on the environment the best that we can. Our values in sustainability are part of our identity through areas of Design, Materials, People and Slow Fashion.

 

Our commitment

Creating goods by doing good

 

KIN SUSTAINABILITY

 

Design

Love Everything You Own

Sustainability begins with thoughtful design. All KIN designs are timeless and made for the modern day woman. Wearable and versatile, we reinvent and reimagine classics and focus on great fabrication and fit, considering every detail and ensuring that every piece is made sustainably and with care. We focus on high quality pieces designed with longevity in mind so they can be worn, re-worn and passed on for generations — and in turn, reduce the amount of landfill waste.

 

Materials

Doing More With Less

All designs are made sustainably with natural or recycled fibres and surplus fabric sourced locally. Our goal is to limit our impact on the environment and make the most of surplus fabrics to avoid the need for new materials. We are committed to plastic free packaging to reduce our environmental footprint. All products are mailed in a recycled mailer and we are conscious of our wrapping and accessories to be 100% plastic free. We avoid excessive packaging and keep it simple and sustainable.

 

Slow Fashion

A Conscious Pace

Our timeless styles are produced in limited quantities to eliminate garment waste. Since we launched, we have introduced pre-orders for all our products so our quantities are reflective of our demand without overproducing. We believe in breaking the fast pace of fashion and traditional collections. Our styles are season-less, and our releases are created at a thoughtful and conscious pace. We may launch one or a few styles at a given time, or restock a popular item if it feels right to us. As long as we are making something that we love for our KIN.   

 

People

Supporting Our Community

We care equally about the people who bring our designs to life. That’s why we partner with ethical manufacturers to make sure our designs are produced responsibly, sustainably, and on a small scale. We prioritise working with family-owned manufacturers who pay fair wages and have good working conditions. Where possible, we try to source and make our products locally to support our community.
