Pieces that will stand the test of time whilst paying reparations to countries affected by water pollution.
Water First, Fashion Second
Founded in 2017
Acknowledging that 840 million people still lack basic access to clean drinking water, 17-20% of industrial water pollution is owed to fabric dyes and finishing chemicals, and clothing and textiles are the no. 1 source of primary microplastics in our oceans and rivers (IUCN, 2017). Kind of Blau are refashioning how clothes are made to put people and environment first.
Made from TENCEL™️ Modal, the gender-neutral garments are timeless yet individual, with an uncompromising approach to aesthetic and social and environmental practice. The fibres for these pieces are extracted from naturally grown beech wood by an environmentally responsible integrated pulp-to-fibre process, the process is self-sufficient in energy and recovers co-products from component parts of the wood. This flexible fibre is renowned for its exceptional softness and absolutely 0 microplastic run-off.
