Honest denim
Made for life

KnowledgeCotton Apparel denim should appeal to everyone who cares about what they wear. And it really makes a huge difference to the farmers and their families growing organic cotton. To the workers in the textile industry. To our planet. And not least, to the denim wearers own skin.

Our Honest denim line is based on a clean, casual and fashionable premium quality in which the wearer puts their own personal touch. All denim contains premium selvage from organic cotton with a built-in stretch function that gives the garment an extremely smooth and comfortable fit.

So, what makes KnowledgeCotton Apparel denim unique? Throughout the entire production and supply chain we have managed to produce a clean and honest product. The material used is 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, which means that the cotton has been grown on fields without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and defoliants. All manufacturing is GOTS certified, ensuring good working conditions and minimum environmental impact. The hi-tech vacuum manufacturing process has reduced water consumption to a minimum. Clean organic dye techniques are used and no chemicals are present in any of the washes, whereas the built-in lycra stretch effect comes from recycled materials.

Protected by nature

Use KnowledgeCotton Apparel highly functional DWR Wax Coating to adapt water repellency and breathability of your Nordic Legacy garment to suit your specific activity needs.

Apply DWR Wax Coating on areas of your Nordic Legacy garment that need extra protection from wind and rain, such as front, shoulder and hood areas on jackets and lower leg area on pants. More wax will increase weather protection while less wax makes the garment cooler and more breathable. By adapting the impregnation properties you can customize your garment to suit the activity of your choice. Re-apply or remove wax to adapt the garment to various conditions.

The DWR Wax Coating will add a classic outdoor feel to the garment surface. Note that DWR Wax Coating will make your Nordic Legacy garment Durably Water Repellent.

KnowledgeCotton Apparel DWR Wax Coating is made from a carefully balanced mixture of beeswax and paraffin. It is non toxic and contains no chemical additives or harmful substances.
