Textile social enterprise sets up shop in Fife town with promise of ‘green’ jobs

Kalopsia Collective, which is run by husband and wife couple Adam Robertson and Nina Falk, has moved to premises in Dunfermline. Its expansion will create two jobs immediately, and another 15 machinist positions will be created over a longer period.

The 8,000 square foot premises will allow the social enterprise – a batch product manufacturer, focused on offering “sustainable and ethical alternatives” for clothing and accessories – to work with larger customers on orders on a larger scale.

Falk added: “We were also keen to move to Fife because of the area’s textile history and liked the connotation of creating new textile jobs in the area. That’s our hope – to immediately create two machinist jobs, then an additional couple, and build a team of 23 machinists over a longer period.

“Our move to Fife will open so many more doors. We look forward to growing our team, growing our offering, growing our revenue year on year whilst remaining sustainable.

The Fife Council Economic Development Team, under the InvestFife banner, worked closely with the company to ensure its move to Fife.

Councilor Altany Craik said: “Fife has a long association with the textile industry so it is extremely exciting to hear that Kalopsia Collective has chosen Dunfermline for their new home.

Kalopsia Collective is based in Leith.
