How it´s made
Kupong is an Oslo based clothing brand with a love for knitwear and sustainable fashion.
Kupong do not not follow seasons, but design timeless garments that can be used in an everyday wardrobe. We use mostly natural materials that are suitable for a Nordic climate, and wool that can be used all year round.
We wish to build a brand with a good production line that makes unique quality products. Each style is carefully designed with consideration for the environment and developed to leave less footprint. The Uniform Collection is the core of our brand, and consist of timeless quality knitwear to wear all day, every day.
Each style is carefully designed and developed in Norway. This is Kupongs ultimate staple wear made Nordic living.
Our productions are small, some on demand - and always designed to make quality last.
All styles are named after beloved TV characters, icons and artists from the 90's.
The Uniform Collection is designed in Norway and produced in Europe and China.
We see a tendency and a demand for hand knitted garments that are distinctive with an anchorage in fashion. Kupong uses traditional knitting techniques in developing the products, but the look and style is contemporary and upbeat.
Knitting is a part of our traditional heritage. We work with women all over Norway. The knitters are widely spread from Oslo in the east throughout the south, the west and as far as Bodø in the north. They are students, doctors, retirees and women working from home.
Knitting takes time and effort. We would like to communicate the whole story, also the production of the garments.
Each style has a personal signature of the woman who knitted it. All the garments are knitted in yarn from Sandnes Garn.
The Capsule Collection is produced in India in collaboration with KOCO Global. KOCO stands for Knit One garment Change One life. These are knitting hubs of women from rural parts of India. In their village girls do not receive an education. Girls become women with no employment prospects other than seasonal labour work, depending on their father or husband for financial security.
By bringing women together to work outside their home and away from domestic duties and earning a stable income, KOCO is part of transforming lives.
