Komodo – green by nature
Name is not as important as the direction that fashion is moving in…. to create less harm. One of the pioneers in that arena is London-based Komodo. The Komodo team believes its a privilege of our civilisation for everyone to dress up with Style – but its also the responsibility of the Fashion Design team to make the style sustainable. It began over 20 years ago when founder Joe Komodo saw how manufacturing garments can and does pollute the environment and felt it was only common sense and common decency to make clothes with respect for mother nature and for the good people who actually do the hard job of patching all these cool garments together. Like for this Ashley Dress, a wrap-style dress with fabric flower embellishment made of 55% Hemp / 45% Organic Cotton. £ 60.00.
Komodo is proud to be celebrating 20 years in business, still in one piece, still independent and still working with many of the same family run factories in Bali and Kathmandu that they started out with at the end of the 80′s and early 90′s. It is the style of these long term partnerships and joint commitments to grow a brand and to find better ways to make more eco-friendly products in a stable and creative team that to Komodo means ‘sustainability’ and ‘fair business’. This super soft merino wool neck warmer, the Bee Warmer, is made of 100% Merino Wool. £ 30.00
This Cooper Coat is satin-lined, wool-mix brushed tweed coat with wool knit sleeve details. Wrap style with hidden press stud fastening. £ 130.00. All three (above) are made in Kathmandu, in a SA8000 factory. (SA8000 is a global social accountability standard for decent working conditions, developed and overseen by Social Accountability International). Ships everywhere, and offers free shipping on all orders over £ 150.00
