“The word KOKLER has a very strong symbolic signification for us because we want to develop clothing inspired from tradition aware of numerous culture composing our social world. Our methodology is based on tradition, authenticity, intercultural thinking, high end materials and respect of who realizes and produces the piece of clothing. Our ambition is to combine those characteristics with subtle design building on the latest technical development in textile.”
