Our Founder and CEO Marianne was just a regular shopper on the High Street in London, when she heard about a factory collapsing in Bangladesh. She became fascinated by a question: who made my clothes? Marianne set out to do whatever she could to find an answer.

She interviewed 100+ other consumers and interviewed top experts and leaders in the field, reaching 3m+ readers of some of the biggest media outlets.

She ended up working at a factory in China, making 2,000+ trousers a day. This allowed her to finally relate to the worker experience and get trust with managers to share openly with her. 

Experts in manufacturing and trade joined as investors, and Kno Global was born!

The KNO Global team is diverse and multicultural, with an empathetic understanding of the needs of our diverse users and customers. 

Our team is supported by advisors and investors who have 50+ combined years of experience in manufacturing and technology. 

The product has been developed with support from our investors and grants.
