& Ethical

The definition of KUDEN’s ethical


“Ethical”
Directly meaning is moral action or thinking.
KUDEN practice proactively for our “Ethical”, considers deeply to nature and place and life of people support our produce.

Even the fast fashion brands, lead a mass-products and mass-disposal till now, say “We go to Ethical” for business, even if it’s a actually not ethical enough. It has a big self-contradiction.
