Every detail matters
We started Kalilo with a sustainability first approach. It's at the heart of our brand - deeply embedded in our philosophy, core values and vision, ensuring that sustainability will shape our brand going forward. We as a brand take responsibility and do our bit by being transparent and making sure that every time you choose Kalilo you feel confident, safe and guilt-free.
We love and are obsessed with natural fibres. We want to ensure that all our products are gentle on the environment and you. From products to packaging we use natural fibres as much as possible. Our packaging is minimal - no unnecessary paper, plastic or synthetic material and is focused on re-usability.
A well-made, high quality product will be loved, cared for and used to its fullest - promoting less use of resources. After-all, less is more and quality always wins over quantity, doesn't it? We at Kalilo strongly believe that long use-reuse and not short use-throw-recycle has to be the way going forward.
Our products are handmade using the finest and the purest natural fibres - no compromise on the quality and made to last. They are classic, pragmatic and minimalist - made to endure fashion waves for years to come. They are made with lots of love and care - we want you to love, cherish and enjoy our products every-time and for a long time.
You will get your Kalilo product neatly packed in a dust bag made from GOTS and fairtrade certified cotton (BIDBI) or a heavy tote bag (bigger items) made from locally sourced canvas cotton in Nepal which you can re-use many times.
We believe that sustainability is not only limited to the materials we use or the processes involved. Knowing how/where the materials are sourced from or if any nasty chemicals were used during processing are just a small part of a much bigger story.
Labels and tags
We are completely moving away from clothing labels made from un-certified cotton or virgin polyester. All our new apparels and accessories (excluding remaining stock) will have care label, size label and neck label made from recycled polyester that is free from harmful substances. All the labels including hang label are made within EU (keeping it local to the region where we are based) and attached by hand to our apparels and accessories with a lot of love in Sweden.
- Our care labels are made in Germany (DORTEX) using OEKO-TEX 100 certified recycled polyester (rPET - read more about rPET here)
