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.
Linen is made from the flax plant and can grow without hardly any attention of chemicals and fertilizers, as long as water is available. It is said that bast fibers like linen grow well on land unsuitable for food production and may help to re-cultivate polluted soils.
