Behind the Seams

We’re super picky about who we work with because we believe quality products come from quality people who manage their farms, factories and facilities responsibly. We proudly partner with manufacturers who are aligned with our values, and rely on third-party certifications to verify our claims (GOTS and Fair Trade, to name a couple). Take a peek behind the seams to meet the people and places that make Knickey sustainable from the start.

Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India

The Knickey journey begins from the seed itself, at an organic farm in Gujarat, India, that grows non-GMO, certified organic cotton. Free from fungicides and toxic insecticides, the cotton is free to bloom naturally without intervention, and is handpicked at harvest – creating jobs for local communities and preventing high energy use from traditional machinery like combines.1

Erode, Tamil Nadu, India

Once baled, the cotton gets shipped south for the next step: ginning. In the ginning process, fibers are separated from the seeds to be cleaned and combed at a certified organic facility in Tamil Nadu.

Tirupur, Tamil Nadu, India

From there, the fibers are spun into spools of yarn at a certified spinner in the neighboring city, Tirupur. Once cleaned, combed and spun into yarn, the cotton is ready to be made into fabric.

Tirupur, Tamil Nadu, India

At another certified organic factory, yarns are knitted into bolts of fabric that get dyed and finished with Oeko-Tex Certified materials (read: dyestuffs free from harmful chemicals, bleach, and heavy metals). When the fabric is dyed, it’s cut and sewn into some of your everyday favorites, like the Knickey High-Rise Brief and the Low-Rise Thong in our core colorways.

Chelsea, NYC

Last, but not least, Knickeys are shipped to our HQ in the heart of Chelsea, NYC. From there, your orders are packaged and shipped, plastic-free directly to your door. Plus, from seed-to-you, the process is completely carbon neutral. We make it easy for you to be easy on the planet.
