Sustainability

At KALITA we are very passionate about sustainable fashion. We are always searching to find better alternatives to encourage responsible ethics of care and reducing the harm to the environment that is created as a result of fashion production.

Our timeless garments are produced together with our process partners to be part of 2% of the industry that participate in the honest production process. Together we ensure that the KALITA brand is ethical and all aspects of the business is treated with respect and compassion, with a focus on our materials impact being less harmful to the environment.

Our environmentally conscious collections are created to be worn many times, over many years, so have less impact than garments that are used once to then be quickly discarded ending up in landfill. We use low impact Azo free dyes with higher absorption rates which minimize the grey water run-off during production and avoids pollution of natural waterways and local eco systems.

 

 

Everything we do at KALITA is with purpose. Even our packaging has been produced with longevity in mind. Each KALITA garment is housed in a beautiful muslin bag that can be reused for shoes or sundries. KALITA tags are made from FSC certified forests or post-consumer waste approved mixed recycled paper or fabric. We have also introduced Carbon off setting deliveries, so all KALITA deliveries are carbon neutral.

We are committed to embracing real changes in the systems production chain, reducing waste, finding alternatives to plastic, protecting small sustainable businesses and innovating and researching cleaner, less planet harmful technologies.

Our passion and search to produce products that are aimed towards greater ecological integrity and social justice is never complete. We will continue searching and implement initiatives to ensure sustainability; environmental concerns are at the forefront of everything that we do.

 

 

Each year we aim to support a cause close to our hearts by donating 10 percent of proceeds of selected styles to a philanthropic cause.
