the products should be designed.

Our first product, KORI-D3O which is a new concept of back protectors that can be transformed into a back pack.

Thinking about the disaster in Bangladesh...

textile industry bangladesh

We're talking about that we manufacture our products in Sweden "with the environment impact and the living standards that we feel that we can stand for", and this may appear to be empty words but it is just examples like these that made us take this decision, the disaster in Bangladesh where over 1,100 textile workers lost their lives.. who would want to stand for that ..
We feel that we are too small to make the kind of demands that would give us full control of what happens in a factory on the other side of the globe, in a culture that we can not compare ourselves with and with a standard of living that makes these conditions considered to be ok ...
What is interesting in this discussion is that not even major companies, global companies such as H&M proves to have the strength (or desire) to achieve full control and take responsibility for their factories ...
When we want to visit our factory here in Sweden so we jump into the car and a few hours later, we sit and have a coffee discussing the production. It is an incredible security and a comfort, not the least that we feel safe with the laws and regulations in Sweden, but also our communication and close contact with production managers and seamstresses the credibility that we want to make us proud of our production and products!
Yes, our prices are higher than our competitors - but we also make sure to fill our products with a user value and a functional value that matches our pricing. In addition to this value, one should not extenuate the security of buying a product that is made with a standard of living that allows our factory workers to go to work each day without having to be concerned, either for themselves, their colleagues or their families.
KORI - Made in Sweden!
