Sustainability in fashion isn’t just a trend; it’s a mission for brands like KOMODO. This iconic brand has firmly rooted its principles in crafting clothes that minimise environmental impacts. Not only do they focus on the planet, but they also ensure their clothing is produced under fair labour conditions.
One of KOMODO’s standout features is their dedication to sustainable fabrics:
The distressing truth is that traditional cotton, a widely used fabric, is drenched in pesticides. Imagine a t-shirt, emblematic of casual wear, containing a quarter-pounder’s worth of toxic chemicals. Enter organic cotton: a pesticide-free alternative. KOMODO’s organic cotton stands as a testament to their commitment to the land, water, and people. As founder Joe Komodo quips, “Be Nice!”
Transforming plastic bottles into fashion? Yes, KOMODO uses recycled PET to make polyester fibre. While the brand’s heart beats for natural fibres, sometimes necessity demands innovation. Joe says with a playful tone, “I used to get wasted, now I recycle!
An award-winning eco-fiber, Tencel is produced from tree cellulose grown on wastelands. Efficient and biodegradable, this fabric feels as good as its eco credentials. While Tencel is similar to viscose, a popular material, its production process is notably more eco-friendly, setting it apart in the world of sustainable textiles. Joe Komodo’s mantra is, “Sell Tencel!”
