The story and success of Danish menswear brand KnowledgeCotton Apparel began in 1969, when Jørgen Mørup, together with his father, opened a small textile company in the city of Herning. Since the beginning, the company has focused on sustainable principles. And at the end of the 1980s, Jørgen Mørup began working with organic cotton. In 2008, together with his son Mads Mørup, Jørgen Mørup founded KnowledgeCotton Apparel, a clothing line for men that uses eco-friendly textiles.
What makes organic cotton a better choice than conventional cotton? First of all, organic cotton doesn’t need chemical fertilizers and less water to grow. Secondly, when cotton is organically grown the land stays fertile for a much longer period of time than when conventional cotton is grown on that same field. Growing organic cotton has a positive effect on the lives, health and incomes of the farmers. And organic cotton is healthier for the wearer!
Recycled fabrics reduce the need for raw materials to create new clothes. It also cuts down demand for landfill space, as textiles take a huge part in landfill related problems. Nope! synthetic fibres do not decompose so we better re-use what is already there.
