Farm to Fashion

We advocate "Farm to Fashion" and value the process from procurement of raw materials to delivery to your hands.

Rather than the conventional division of labor in the apparel industry, where subcontracting and subcontracting are customary, Kapok Knot has built its own supply chain. We promise not to make choices based solely on short-term costs, but to make choices that will bring happiness to the people involved in the long-term.

From Indonesia's kapok farms and kapok research facilities, to the development of kapok sheets, product design, and sewing factories. We understand who is thinking, how they are involved, and how they are involved in creating the product, and we deliver it to our customers with our own hands.
By doing so, we will be able to provide products at low prices without imposing an undue burden on anyone.

The coat is complete! All that's left is to get it to everyone.
