Kowtow

Rated: Great

Camel Wool Bomber – Ships internationally from Australia

We love this classic camel long bomber coat, made from a blend of merino wool and recycled nylon. It features a raglan sleeve and fastens with natural corozo buttons, making it a timeless-yet-modern coat, perfect for both work and running errands. It runs a little over-sized so Kowtow recommends going a size down. Kowtow designs elegant, timeless womenswear, using organic, fair trade cotton, and non-toxic dyes.

The R Collective

Rated: Great

Murray Jacket – Ships internationally from Hong Kong

The R Collective’s womenswear collections are made by reusing rescued excess materials from leading luxury brands and reputable manufacturers. The brand uses a high-proportion of eco-friendly materials, which limits the amount of chemicals, water, and wastewater used in production. It also ensures the payment of a living wage in its supply chain, which is why we rated it ‘Great’! The Murray jacket is a limited-edition piece, created with an enormous labour of love, from deconstructing and unpicking robust uniforms—then cleaning, ironing, and meticulous pattern making.
