ECO KREL

From our Yarn to our techniques, KREL has always been sustainable. 

Eco KREL

KREL Tropical Knitwear is a completely sustainable company. We are eco-friendly in every way a fashion brand can be.

1. ON DEMAND & CUSTOM MADE
All of our products are made to order. Whether a boutique or private client, each piece is produced individually.

2. GREEN & CLEAN 
We keep things safe for the environment. Once each piece is produced, we hand wash them using minimal water consumption with environmentally friendly detergents and hang wash in the Miami air.

3. HIGH QUALITY & TIMELESS DESIGN
We use the highest quality materials. We design and knit with precision. Our design process allows us to maximize our time and most pieces are designed as one piece of fabric. KREL has changed and grown, with these changes our clients have evolved into collectors.

4. FAIR & ETHICAL
Everyone that has a hand in the production of KREL Tropical Knitwear is paid a livable wage and the yarns that we use are sourced ethically.

5. REPAIR, REDESIGN & UPCYCLE
We repair AND teach you how to repair your knits as part of our experiences. Here you can schedule time with us to teach you basic techniques to mend your clothing so that it lasts you longer.
We also redesign and up-cycle every yarn, scrap and garment that doesn't make the cut into something that does. From dolls to installations, every yarn finds a way to be used. 
6. RENT, LEASE & SWAP
We work with stylists and often loan pieces for creative productions. We trade for modeling as part of our Krel Coin Campaign.

7. SECONDHAND & VINTAGE
We buy vintage and mill-end yarn from other periods of time in order to do capsule collections, one-of-one pieces or test out patterns during development that gets made into KREL Lab.
