The gracious fellows at Kapital and Kountry allowed me an exclusive look into their washing and sewing factory. The raccoon stands for their ability to wash anything, just like a frisky raccoon can eat anything. We were given a walk-through of the Kountry racoon’s adytum, and we witnessed the operose work that goes into their products.

Tumbling, and squeezing machines.

The Kountry line of Kapital is a washing wonderland. Their numinous-like products come from their technique, supplies, inventive design, and years of experience.

Washing machines

The various machines give each garment unique details. From stone-washing to softening to dyeing. They do it all.
