When Tony Tonnaer founded the Kings of Indigo company in 2011 the fashion world as a whole was at the incredible early stages of sustainability and use of organic fabrics. Thankfully come 2019 (and with the brains and push for sustainability by such brands as KOI) this has changed dramatically for the better.
Kings of Indigo positions itself as a pioneer in this ever-changing sustainable fashion world, innovating with materials and sustainable production methods, constantly exploring how to reduce the impact on the planet and people; every garment made with a conscious.

Since 2013 KOI has maintained its position as a sustainable brand, officially. In 2017, 90% of its production took place at monitored locations and 90% were even audited by the Fair Wear Foundation. One factory location being in Soliman, Tunisa where 41% of total production is made with its 80 employees; making jeans, denim jackets and shirts..which is no small feat!
