As golf lovers, we can all agree one of the best parts of the game is being in nature, enjoying the beauty around us on each course we play. That’s why we are committed to taking any steps necessary to invest in our planet and make sustainable fashion a priority.
This Earth Month, we encourage you to do the same and pay attention to the impacts of your purchases by choosing brands that are committed to sustainability and eco-friendly practices. The good news is that when you choose KINONA, your dollars are working toward a more environmentally friendly fashion industry.
Sustainability is more than a passing fad for us. It’s woven into our company culture. At the core of the KINONA brand is a spirit of being vocal advocates for necessary change in sports fashion. One of our guiding principles as a business is that consumers have the power to bring about major change, especially in the realm of sustainability and environmental consciousness. We value that you want to spend your hard-earned income on ethical, earth-friendly attire.
While most of our competitors use 100% polyester, most of our Italian fabrics sourced from the women-owned company, Carvico, combine ECONYL® high quality regenerated nylon with lycra for superior fit, feel and performance.
Using ECONYL® in our products diverts materials bound for the landfill while also lowering the reliance on crude oil to create new nylon. In fact for every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw materials used, 70,000 barrels of crude oil are saved and over 65,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions are avoided.
Not only is ECONYL® reducing the global warming impact of nylon by up to 90% compared with standard nylon, but their fabrics carry the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 label. The label certifies that the fabric and dyes used in production are non-harmful to humans, meaning our collections are produced in a way that keeps our planet and her people safe.
This one-two punch means that we can give KINONA fans the eco-friendly golf attire they love without using non-renewable resources and without adding harmful or toxic substances to the environment.
The thoughtful design of KINONA goes beyond sustainability, too. We put our products through the ringer, incorporating feedback from pros and recreational golfers alike to ensure superior fit and performance on and off the course.
And we refuse to sacrifice fashion for function. Lead Designer Jarlath Mellett takes inspiration straight from the runway with a commitment to bring fun, chic, contemporary fashion to the fairway. All KINONA tops, bottoms, dresses, and accessories are constructed to ensure a comfortable, breathable, stylish fit.
When you choose KINONA, you’re doing more than simply updating your golf wardrobe. You’re supporting a sustainable women’s clothing brand that’s actively working to reduce the environmental impact of our fashion choices (and looking damn good while doing it)!
