We also understand that finding ways to live more sustainably can be difficult and often, when we try to act more responsibly it seems to limit our choice. That’s why at Komodo we've been creating and perfecting our range of affordable, on trend eco fashion for 30 years.
It’s a privilege of our society to dress in comfort and style. It is the responsibility of designers to make that style fairly and sustainable for those who work on it.
Our small but efficient team are based in north London, designing collections with just the right balance of contemporary and timeless style. Sourcing the finest quality natural fibres and innovative eco fabrics, to provide a tangible alternative to the culture of fast fashion that has become so prevalent today.
We trade fairly with factories in Nepal, China, Indonesia and Turkey which, our designers visit regularly and work closely with the myriad of talented people who bring their ideas to life.
The clothes we produce are high quality, easy fitting wardrobe essentials, that are sure to become firm favourites you will want to wear again and again and again...
Along the way we have supported numerous environmental and social projects at home and in the countries where we manufacture. From sheltering London's homeless to building schools high in the Himalayas and reforestation programs on the side of volcanos.

Hemp fibre comes from the cannabis sativa plant which grows densly and swiftly in poor soil to a height of 4 meters giving a yield 3 to 4 times more than most substitues (like cotton) without the need of agro-chemicals. The plants do this by capturing very high levels of carbon dioxide. It is also the most useful plant on the planet. All our Hemp fabrics are GOTS certified .
Joe Komodo says... Hemp Works !
Bamboo - Smooth and luxurious to the touch, bamboo fabric keeps you cool in high temperatures, while warming you when it's cold.

Eco Cashmereis fibre obtained from cashmere goats.Common usage defines the fiber as wool but it is finer and softer than sheep's wool. Cashmere is finer, stronger, lighter, softer, and more insulating than sheep wool.
Soya fibre is made from the waste that comes from Soya bean cake after Tofu and other foods are made,
it's the only plant protein fibre, so it's healthy to wear. It dyes, washes and dries more easily than other
natural fabrics and it doesn't shrink or crease.
Joe Komodo says... Try it, you'll feel delicious !
Recycled Rubber is what we use for the sole units of our shoes. For every 2 pairs of Komodo's we save another old tyre, from the landfill or the bonfire. Makes you wonder who's wearing the other half of this one - whoever it is, might be your sole mate!
Joe Komodo says... Eat, Pray, Love - Go for a walk!
Wool - Komodo does not use man made substitues or blended yarns. Our wool yarns are certified from non-mulesd sources. Some of our wool garments are hand knitted and always hand finished, this means every piece can have minor variations, which we see as a sign of it's individuality.... not an imperfection!
Joe Komodo says... Vive la difference!
Recycled PET(Polyethylene Terephthalate) is the material used in plastic drinks bottles and what we use to make recycled polyester fibre used in our collections. While we always strive to use natural fibres sometimes it is necessary to make use of something man made. Typically this will as a blend in woven fabrics.
