Logistics Planner - Permanent Part Time, 20-25 hours per week

Who We Are

Founded by Gosia Piatek in 2006, Kowtow is a seed-to-garment brand, with collections made exclusively from 100% Fair Trade certified organic cotton.

Gosia believes that clothing is a vessel for a much bigger concept towards a healthier planet and a fairer world. Determined to create a positive environmental contribution, Kowtow works with nature to provide people with a natural and circular clothing solution.

“The limitations of our ethos keeps us innovative. We don’t compromise on design, and embrace restrictions. This gives our garments a strong minimal identity, and we believe the simplicity of our clothing is the first step toward circularity.”

– Gosia Piatek, Kowtow Founder & Creative Director
