Founder of a sustainable apparel brand in Vancouver, BC. UN Young Champion of the Earth award recipient. Lover of the planet. People, planet, prosperity. Board Member. Solopreneur. Sustainable fashion advocate. Mountain dweller.
I have extensive knowledge in sourcing fabrics, product development, manufacturing, the circular economy, applying for funding, crowdfunding and marketing. As the founder of a sustainable apparel brand called NOVEL SUPPLY CO. and recipient of the UN Young Champions of the Earth prize, I want to help others navigate the complex world of sustainable fashion so that we can create a bigger impact collectively.
Why re-invent the wheel and do all this research yourself? Kaya’s extensive knowledge about the textile industry & sustainable fabric production & manufacturing here in Vancouver is a one stop shop. Best money spent on myself in awhile. 15 min chat with Kaya saved me months of research , Q&A and money.
Kaya is incredibly knowledgeable in topics like clothing startups, Vancouver local markets and the importance of maintaining tight expenses when starting a business. Her expertise spans many years, and her cadour is refreshing. Our call acted as a great brainstorm and "kick-in-the-butt" to get going on certain tasks I'd be pushing aside, and I learned a lot from her. Thanks for the great advice Kaya, will definitely book again!
Kaya was extremely helpful, honest and offered great suggestions and solutions to my questions. She is very knowledgable in the business and gave me many tips and pointers of industry standards that I previously had no knowledge of. As someone starting a business for the first time, it is always beneficial to hear from successful, likeminded individuals who are happy to share their knowledge and help you grow as a business. Kaya did exactly this and I would recommend her to anyone!
Kaya was an incredibly helpful person to connect with at this stage in my business journey. As someone who has built a successful, sustainable fashion brand, she's extremely knowledgeable about both the fashion industry and how to operate ethically and sustainably. She was so generous with her time, resources, and ideas, and gave me so much information to unpack and take away from this call. I would highly recommend Kaya to anyone interested in fashion, sustainability, or growing a brand online!
