Sustainability & Excellence

Sustainable and ethical fashion manufacturing has always been at our core. We started our business to promote manufacturing that supports local communities while reducing our impact on the environment.
Our Founding Principles
Sustainability, Community & Excellence

1. Sustainable Fashion Manufacturing


Since it’s inception, Knitwin Fashion has always been about producing fashion sustainably. The impact of fast fashion are rarely seen as much as in our hometown of Tirupur, Tamil Nadu.

Our fathers grew up here and remember a not so distant past of cleaner rivers and fresher air. We want to get that back for our children.

  1. Work exclusively with certified organic or sustainable fabrics.
  2. Work exclusively with certified spinners and weavers.
  3. Reduce and manage our waste -throw nothing, recycle everything.

2. Community


Inherited partly from the Tamil culture, we have a strong sense of community.

Most of our team members have been with us since our inception, over 20 years ago. We take care of our team and they take care of us.

However modern our machines and processes might get, fashion manufacturing remains a human affair.

It is our responsibility to shed light on the people behind our clothes and it is our responsibility to protect them from the often shameful working conditions of our industry

Sustainable fashion manufacturing goes hand in hand with ethics. We want to make fashion in respect of our planet and everyone in it. Fashion that works for the people that wear it and for the people that make it.

Our greatest pride comes from offering a safe and empowering working space to the people of our community.

If you’d like to know more about what are the working conditions in our factory, you can have a look at the ethical requirements of our gots certification here.

We are also adhering to the 10 Principles of Fair Trade by WFTO, as outlined below.

The most sustainable fashion is the one that lasts.

Sustainable fashion manufacturing, or fashion that lasts, requires excellence. Excellence in the fibres, the spinning, the weaving, the dyeing and the garmenting. This is why we only work with high quality materials.

We work with high-end brands in making garments designed to last.

As a result, our team members are proud of what they do, our impact on the earth is reduced and the people that wear our clothes truly appreciate them. Everybody wins.
