Keya t-shirts have been sold and worn all over the world for more than 20 years, becoming one of the leading manufacturers and exporters of knit garments in Bangladesh. As one of the largest and fully integrated facilities in the world, Keya prides itself on both state-of-the-art equipment and a driving force of over 10,000 employees, whose quality assurance make our knitwear one of the world’s best.
Keya is committed to creating a safe, responsible and industry leading workplace for all of its employees, while also avoiding the employment of under-aged children at its facilities. Onsite there is an Effluent Treatment Plan (ETP) to treat all outgoing water and effluents, providing a healthier environment for the local area.
The core success of Keya comes from high quality production, timely shipment and fulfilment of orders. Thanks to our Quality Assurance and Industrial policies, these accomplishments have earned us a gold membership of the prestigious Bangladesh Germany Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BGCCI). Other certifications for quality and compliance include Öko-Tex®- Standard 100, WRAP, Organic Exchange Control Certificates, SEDEX, BSCI.
Keya Knit Composite exclusively produces ring-spun garments, assuring durability, better printability and outstanding quality and comfort. All of our cotton used to produce our garment is imported from USA and we then produce all of our yarn in-house, which allows our internal quality control to be of an international standard.
All Keya yarn is produced into ‘ringspun’ cotton; a process of continuously twisting together cotton fibres to make very fine cotton rope. The twisting action makes short cotton hairs stronger and softer. Ringspun cotton is a much lighter weight than regular cotton, though the fabric is softer and more durable.
We use exactly the same amount of cotton to knit a 180gsm t-shirt and a 130gsm t-shirt of the same size, however a ring-spun cotton t-shirt is lighter because of tighter yarn threads. Ring-spun cotton compacts the fabric so even though a regular cotton t-shirt may be heavier, it’s the ringspun process that creates the wonderfully light, soft and durable handle of Keya garments.
