Kimood’s K-loop collection represents a new take on fashion, looking to the future and the circular economy in a literal sense. The K-loop collection eliminates waste, “Nothing is created, everything is transformed” (Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier).
For each K-loop bag, we can certify the water and energy saved by recycling our cotton. With this collection, we are working towards an ecological reawakening to reverse the current environmental trend.
The K-loop collection allows recovery and reuse of materials at the production site as well as transformation of materials, such as PET* which is polluting our oceans. The fabrics used to make K-loop bags come from scrap materials generated during production of many KARIBAN BRANDS products.
When we recycle our cotton, we use a large portion of organic cotton as well as traditional cotton. This allows us to multiply the advantages of recycling because organic cotton already respects nature. The polyester recovered from PET* saves a lot of water and energy for an equivalent weight, thus reducing the carbon impact of the energy production cycle. Each garment is accompanied by its digital passport contained in the Blockchain codes to guarantee and certify the origin of the recycled materials. Use of scrap materials and transparency are the pillars of this sustainable and circular collection.

The tote bag that heralded the start of the K-loop project – KI5808
The cotton used to make this attractive bag comes from waste materials from t-shirt production for the Karibanbrand. The added polyester comes from recycled plastic bottles.
During the recycling process, we add tracers to the thread, i.e. electronic chips containing a Blockchain (storage and information transmission technology) which stores all the operations carried out on the thread.
With the cutting-edge Aware™ tracer technology, Kimood thus allows the end consumer to track the entire production process, with the guarantee of a product recycled according to best practice, with no possible modifications during the process.
