Our yarn spinner has always placed great importance and emphasis on being ethical and socially responsible, with a true commitment to environmental protection, animal welfare and sustainability.
They have full understanding of responsible cashmere production from farming to the final product.
This ensures that each of our garments will be kind to your skin and to nature, this includes our yarns and our buttons, we additionally offer a completely dye-free Home Wear collection.
The non-toxic dyes we use are approved and certified to an Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, reducing negative chemical impact during the production process, and certifying that they are safe to wear.
Our yarn supplier and garment factory both have ISO14001 certification. This is a voluntary and internationally agreed and recognised standard for Environmental Management systems. Which improves resource efficiency, reduces waste and improves overall environmental impact.
From our biodegradable corn bags to our paper parcel tape we are using more ecological alternatives to plastic to ensure Kopila doesn’t upset the harmony of nature.
Our handmade lokta tissue paper supports the tradition of handmade paper in Nepal creating important job opportunities in the local communities. The paper is made from the bark of the lokta tree which is a sustainable resource.
All paper labelling used by Kopila is FSC certified. This guarantees that the raw material has been sourced in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
All our garment labels are organic cotton and GOTS certified. This standard sets requirements for both ecological and labour conditions. The cotton has been grown following organic principles that help maintain soil health without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilisers.

We believe in paying the true cost for a garment and that we need to buy less and buy well. We need to understand, as consumers, the true cost of a garment made with conscience. Rather than offering seasonal markdowns for excess stock we will only make small batches and will archive any stock remaining each season - always available to buy at full price through the archive section on our website. We believe our garments transcend the seasons and will look contemporary for years to come so will only offer your garment at its true cost.
