Organic cotton

Kowtow's organic cotton is organically farmed and free from genetically modified seeds, to benefit the soil, cotton and farmers. Crops are rain-fed and hand-picked. Organic farming is achieved through companion planting, crop rotation and on-site green waste composting to curb the use of chemicals harmful to farmers and their families and communities.

Fair Trade

Fair trade empowers farmers to negotiate with buyers to secure better prices for their cotton. Each season, certified farmer groups receive a premium to be spent on community projects such as medical costs, irrigation schemes to preserve rainwater, books and clothing for school children, farmer education, training and upgrades.

Sustainability

Kowtow works with sustainably recognised accredited suppliers, not only for its cotton, but also for the brand's trims, labels, tags, packaging, paper and shipping.

Printing & Dyeing

Kowtow's ethical organic cotton prints and fabrics use Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)-approved inks and dyes, which are free from chlorine bleach, toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde and aromatic solvents. Kowtow uses GOTS-approved washes for its ethical organic cotton garments, from lightweight jersey to denim. GOTS ensures sustainable use and treatment of water used in these processes.

  • Cold machine wash, inside out
  • Wash like colours together
  • Do not bleach
  • Line dry in shade or low tumble dry
  • Medium iron on reverse side
  • Drycleanable (F)

Kowtow collections are made from organic, renewable, biodegradable and regenerated fibres.

The label is entirely committed to fair trade production and designs with longevity in mind.

All Kowtow garments are made at SA8000-accredited factories in India.

Oversized, poor fit

I am usually a size 8 in tops and bought an XS in this shirt. My bust and waist measurements were borderline between XS and S in the size guide.

The Pros: lovely feeling material (albeit on the thinner side), great neckline, beautiful hemp buttons

The Cons: Oversized - billowy front and back, very long overall length. Despite being oversized, the shirt still gapes badly at the chest area with any arm movement (I wear a size 10C/D bra). Shoulders also sit a little wide and sleeve length is slightly too long. I think the XXS would have been a better fit for me. The length and cut of this shirt make it difficult to pair with other clothing items - pants / skirts need to have a wide leg / loose fit to conceal all the tucked-in fabric.

Overall this shirt might work for you if you are tall, want an oversized shirt, or size down (if you have a smaller chest). Definitely recommend trying on before buying.

It's okay.

Classic shirt, great company values, but fabric is quite thin for the price, which is the main let down. Runs a little large and is a longer shirt than what is standard - great for the taller size S, not so much for the shorter ones like me.

Clean and crisp

Great classic, crisp white shirt. It is very long and I did size up to a medium as I wanted a slightly looser fit, but in hindsight probably didn't need to as I feel the sizing runs quite large.
