The Kowtow Parasol Hat lives up to the name; with its ultra-wide brim, this hat is sure to keep the summer sun's rays well away from your face. Constructed from sturdy denim fabric, carefully selected with the design in mind, the brim is neither too floppy nor too stiff, flexible enough to give it a variegated silhouette, but not so much that it loses its structure.
Kowtow's new seed to summer wardrobe is focussed on creating a Positive Impact. The clothes emit a positive practicality, punctuated by a bright colour palette that embodies the intention of 'looking up'. Kowtow contrasts a fresh, bold yellow colourway with a digital cloudy, blue sky to create an overall message to look at a 'bigger picture' ideal. Kowtow was recently awarded with B-Corp Certification, meaning they meet the highest standards of social and environmental impact. Their Fairtrade-certified garments are made in a responsible, transparent supply chain, using inks and dyes approved by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). While the choice to use just one fibre in textile production might seem restrictive to some designers, Kowtow finds freedom in limitations. This collection of knit and denim pieces are cohesive and imaginative, while easily fitting into a sustainable wardrobe model that values the longevity and versatility of clothing.
