- Launched in 2012, Kings of Indigo (K.O.I) produce denim and apparel designed and produced in a some of the most sustainable ways in Europe. From their choice of raw materials to their dyeing processes; to using alternative washing and finishing methods like laser, ozone and ice blasting—all of which reduce water and chemical usage.
- As a member of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), Kings of Indigo manufacturers are regularly monitored and approved as socially compliant by FWF.
- An exclusive part of the K.O.I Denim range is 100% Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton and dyed with natural dyes—a process K.O.I have mastered alongside their manufacturer in Turkey that uses 70L less water per kg, no chemicals and 30% less energy.
- Fabrics used in K.O.I apparel collections include Tencel, Lyocell, hemp, linen, recycled polyester, recycled wool and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified organic cotton.
- Recycled fabrics are used as much as possible, spinning the old into the new. Recycled denim is retrieved and combined with new yarns like hemp and organic cotton to create the K.O.I Red Light Denim range.
