Novel Supply Co.

Kaya Dorey, is the founder of NOVEL SUPPLY CO. a sustainable apparel line made in her hometown of Vancouver, BC, Canada. Learning about textiles waste and synthetic fabrics that don’t biodegrade is what prompted Kaya to create a clothing option that was made from natural and organic fabrics. As the 2017 recipient of the Young Champion of the Earth prize by the UNEP and Coverstro, she is striving to create a zero waste, closed-loop model that takes responsibility for the products she is making. She also believes that automated textiles manufacturing has the ability to shift the industry to one that is more ethical, affordable and sustainable.
