Know The Origin
After the Rana Plaza garment-factory collapse in Bangladesh, Know The Origin founders Charlotte and Laura felt that more needed to be done to protect the workers who make our clothes.
They came together to design men's and women's basics working with Fairtrade and organic producers in India to create chemical-free garments that make a difference to the often vulnerable people who work in clothing manufacture.
But they don’t stop there. A huge proportion of a garment's environmental impact is in its use by the consumer. They therefore encourage low temperature and less frequent washing, line drying, repair, reuse and recycling in the hope that none of their clothing ends up in landfill.
