Respect is at the heart of the women’s brand Kowtow. The New Zealand brand’s name aptly comes from the Chinese act (kau tau in Cantonese) of showing deep respect for someone by bowing so low that one’s head touches the ground. Created in 2007 by Gosia Piatek, Kowtow ethically makes understated, minimalist women’s clothes using environmentally-friendly, organic and sustainable fabrics. A stalwart in ethical green fashion, the brand uses clever cuts and inspired takes on volume to create subtly feminine, subtly androgynous women’s wear. Elegant and authentic, we just know you will admire Kowtow's pieces as much as we do. Discover more from Kowtow online.
