Kromagnon is a sustainable and Eco-friendly high street label featuring both menswear and womenswear. They are based out of New York City with Kristen Luong at helm as the owner and creative director, “KROMAGNON’s mission is to prove that sustainable and Eco-friendly clothing can be trendy, fashionable and amazing.” Let me just tell you that it is everything they promised and much more.
Kristen graduated from the menswear design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology, FIT, in 2013. It was while her time at FIT that she was introduced to sustainable fashion and ignited her passion for Eco-friendly fashion. Kristen continually attends trade shows in search for Eco-friendly material and innovations within the industry.
“We source earth friendly materials that are renewable, organic, natural and biodegradable. Most of the fabrics we use are hemp blends with other sustainable fibers such as tencel, peace silks, organic cotton, and recycled water bottles (PET). The yarns we use in our sweaters are natural yarn made from virgin wool that have not been dyed or treated with harsh chemicals. We work with global artisans for hand crafted fabrics and prints that use only natural or low impact dyes. Some of our prints are done with bleach in a color reductive process while others use natural dyes and pigments such as indigo, rubia, and copper to create luminous color effects. We prefer to use buttons and trims that are made of cotton, paper, corozo nut, wood, coconut, and other biodegradable materials. Our clothes are ethically and locally produced in New York City.” learn more here.
