My name is Jessica and I had an idea!
My goal was to make a modern fashion brand that is both sustainable and stylish. To create products that looked great and supported both the needs of busy lifestyles and the environment.
I use cellulose fibre material derived from mulberry trees, which are strong and durable. It’s unique because it can be washed, reshaped, reused, dyed and stitched.
I wanted to create a brand that represents my values -cruelty free and environmentally friendly. All components of my bags are either biodegradable or recyclable.
I Personally make and design every product myself, here in the UK.
Kōzo is the Japanese word for mulberry bark, long used for artisan paper and cloth making.
Kōzo paper is made from cellulose fibres which are all natural plant fibres that are FSC certified. All dyes used are natural and non- toxic to the environment. The material it strong and highly tear and water resistant making it extremely durable. It can be washed by hand or on a delicate machine wash with or without detergent. When wet it very easy to mold to the perfect shape and then stiffens when fully dried.
Why choose kōzo?
Because it’s a small business in the UK using only environmentally friendly, biodegradable or reusable meterials. Each and every bag is made by hand and completely unique. Every design is made to fit your every day needs and lifestyles. No mass production, no plastic, no cruelty towards animals or people.
SUPPORT SMALL UK BUSINESSES
By cutting down on mass-produced products, giving the independant makers a chance.
