We are so happy to bring back another small run of water-friendly garments in collaboration with our lovely friends over at Deta! Deta creates knitted swimwear crafted from a fine gauge, water resistant yarn that dries quickly and won't lose its shape! Day to night, land to sea, the Anna One Piece will transition with ease.
All of Deta’s pieces are knitted in a family-owned factory in Downtown Los Angeles. Our knitting process stands in contrast to how most swimwear is produced. The usual method for swimwear is cut-and-sew - a process that is exactly what it sounds like, where pieces are cut from fabric and then sewn together via machine. Deta, on the other hand, knits pieces directly from just a single thread of yarn!Shop Swim
A few weeks ago we hosted our first fit clinic with four very gracious volunteers. What did we learn? That every single body is unique, that women with the same measurements didn't necessarily wear the same size, that every fit model's face lit up when they felt good in their clothes. You could see their posture shift, their confidence grow, and that feeling of "hey, I look damn good!" radiating off of them. And that is what we're working towards – that's the power of clothing that finds a home on a body, the power of body positivity in fashion.
With this year's more even keeled pace of creation, our goal is to be intentional about the fit of our clothing across all sizes. We know that it may be nearly impossible to create a product that works for everyone, but boy are we determined to do our very best anyways! To start out, our styles will be offered in sizes 2XS - 4XL (numeric sizes 0 - 20), and you can take a look at our Size Chart and How to Measure Guide in the new "Sizing" section of the website. We encourage you to refer to these charts to find your perfect fit!Shop the Spring Collection
The Everyday Pant
As in: we'll be wearing these pants every day. An update to the much loved Ali Pant, the Alva Pant features a slimmer leg as well as new lengths and added sizes, and now available in Black!

Cut from our all time favorite New Denim Workshop canvas this fabric is made from pre and post consumer textile waste, ground back into fiber to spin into new yarns to weave new up-cycled fabrics. These fibers are all natural, compostable and free of chemicals and dyes leaving an overall positive carbon footprint. ♻️Shop the Alva Pant
One of the most exciting parts of opening our Fort Greene shop is having the opportunity to support and share the work of other brands with similar values to Kordal.
This spring we're introducing the footwear brand About Arianne; a shoe brand that's been manufacturing in Spain for over ten years. By following no trends and respecting local craftsmanship and the environment, they produce comfortable shoes using the best Spanish materials and leathers.
About Arianne is female and LGBTIQ founded brand; Ariadna Guirado and Ernest Vidal. Back in 2010 they teamed up to create shoes they couldn’t find out there and share their passion for design. Ariadna is in charge of the product design and Ernest is the art director and brand manager. We share different backgrounds but the same love for fashion and shoes.Shop Here
In an effort to do some good, we are now offering reusable Face Mask Sets for personal use in order to help ensure that the highest grade medical masks are reserved for those on the front lines – the doctors, nurses, and medical aids risking their own safety for the safety of others. These masks are made from 100% cotton with our dear friends and longtime partners at The New Denim Project. Their facility in Guatemala allows them to make larger quantities, which means that we'll be able to offer over 3,000 masks! Our initial goal with this project was to provide the public with resources to protect ourselves, but because there are so many communities who are struggling we wanted to take it a step further.
We will be selling masks (sets of 3) for $20 each. We will then use the funds to first pay for manufacturing, packaging and shipping costs, and once that is covered (we'll need approximately 345 sales) we will take the remaining profits and donate them to the Citymeals on Wheels organization. A designated emergency responder for New York City's seniors, Citymeals is delivering 450,000 meals in response to the Coronvirus outbreak.Shop Face Masks
