THE K-LOOP PROJECT

Is the "closing of the loop", or the "circular economy" in marketing terms.
Part of an approach focusing on the environment and traceability, "K-loop" revolves around the use of recycled materials and the option for the end consumer to transparently track each step in a product’s creation. The main idea behind the K-loop project is waste reduction, recycling and reusing: "Nothing is lost, nothing is created: everything is transformed" (Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier). This promising project has launched two collections: "K-loop" and "K-loop tracking".

Matteo Borri
The essence of K-loop is the circular economy. We save energy, water and waste because there are no leftovers. No waste: we take pride in how and where we produce our product. We are proud to be "green" by nature.
Matteo Borri

The K-loop collection

Moving towards a circular economy


The K-loop collection by Kimood and K-up represents a new take on fashion, looking to the future and the circular economy in a literal sense.
The K-loop products are manufactured from scrap materials recovered during the production of KARIBAN BRANDS organic cotton pieces.
