Our Commitment to Slow Fashion
Slow Fashion is a movement of designing, creating and buying garments that stand the test of time. It’s a philosophy that encourages slowing down our consumption, owning fewer, but better, things that are purchased thoughtfully from brands that consciously manufacture clothing without threatening natural resources or damaging the social and ecological environment.
At Krimson Klover, we’ve been honoring Slow Fashion since long before it became a movement. We strongly believe that fashion, like food, is best when crafted “from scratch,” with intention — which means knitting a piece of our soul into everything we make.
Our sustainable fashion design is an intensive, 12-month process mixing trend analysis, creative inspiration and meticulous attention to detail with a touch of ingenuity. Attending print and yarn shows, commissioning one-of-a-kind illustrations and artwork, and creating custom patterns stitch by stitch, we are 100% hands-on when it comes to garment design. It often takes several rounds of prototyping to ensure a quality, handcrafted product that will stand the test of time and steal the hearts of women along the way.
Our talented design team selects superior-quality, natural fibers from sustainable sources across the globe that respect animals, employees and the environment. In particular, our Merino wool partner sets the bar for textile companies by producing an innovative, high-quality product without sacrificing their commitment to the environment, social welfare and industry best practices. They are certified for excellence in wastewater treatment, energy usage, absence of harmful substances, continual supply chain improvement and overall environmental sustainability. This high standard is what we expect from all of our award-winning yarn suppliers.
Factories With Integrity
If we wouldn’t work there, we don’t do business there. Period. Years ago our founder vetted numerous small, boutique factories — meeting the owners and their families. She hand-selected several with beautiful, clean working environments and employees that embrace the art and soul of knitting hand-finished garments. Two decades later, we have maintained strong, trusting relationships, which only adds to the integrity of the final product.
Slow Fashion Values
We care about our planet and the people on it. We constantly strive for balance. We do things that feed our soul and connect us to what matters most. From our employees, suppliers and factories to our customers, we are committed to building long-standing relationships based on sustainability, passion and trust.
