Keten was fortunate enough to be able to come into the apparel business with the guidance from a wide range of friends, family and 'older brother brands.' The people around Keten helped mentor us and show us not only how to design the products we dreamed of but also how to source quality materials and create relationships with responsible manufactures.
Keten takes manufacturing very seriously. We go well beyond typical supplier relationships, and consider everyone involved in the manufacturing process apart of our team. This type of relationship was able to be nourished quickly because of the previous relationships of our mentors.
We don’t take shortcuts or play geographic favorites, and as a result, we are currently purchasing materials from Canada, China, Pakistan and The United States. Currently most of our manufacturing takes place in Pakistan and China
