Sustainable Fashion Brand Kotn Expands Into Women’s

Toronto-based e-commerce brand Kotn will launch its first women’s wear collection, made from ethically made Egyptian cotton today. The brand began as a men’s line, creating essential pieces that fit into a man’s daily routine. That same philosophy is being applied to women.
“The core items in your wardrobe should be well made and affordable because they are what you spend your life in,” said Mackenzie Yeates, cofounder of Kotn. “We designed these essentials with a classic cut to fit with your personal style.”
The 16-piece women’s collection will feature cotton T-shirts, tanks, turtlenecks, long-sleeves, sweatshirts and sweatpants. The cropped sweatshirt, for example, has a dropped shoulder and relaxed fit that is cut short to show off the waist, while the culotte sweatpants have cropped wide legs that are cut to sit high on one’s waist.
All of the colors are inspired by the region in Egypt where the Kotn farms and factories are located. The colors include kohl, white, dark navy blue, dark pomegranate, granite, mango, bluish green and a light blush pink. Retail prices range from $16 for underwear to $32 for an easy lightweight jersey crew T-shirt and goes up to $120 for the tunic sweatshirt.
