At Komodo, we are dedicated to creating clothes that are sustainable and don’t have a negative impact on the environment. We are passionate about protecting and nurturing our planet, but we also love fashion and don’t believe the two need to be mutually exclusive. Why can’t we look great whilst fighting for the world we live in?!
The Komodo story grew from epic travel adventure story back in 1988.
Inspired by the culture and colours of Asia and passionate about creating an eclectic mix out of Eastern and Western design ideas, Komodo became the label to watch at fashion shows in London, Paris, Florence and Tokyo.
Joe Komodo says.. "It's a privilege of our civilization to dress up in comfort and style, but it's also the responsibility of todays fashion designers to make that style fairly and sustainable for those who work on it - otherwise, you can only pretend it's cool !"
Komodo has been a pioneer brand, promoting the use and development of Organic Cotton, Hemp, Bamboo, Tencel and other natural fibres since the early 90s. Equally important was the welfare of the suppliers and people who work in the small factory units that make our clothes. There needs to be loyalty and respect to make a good deal for all and we still visit our factories for at least 2 months+ each year to ensure that any problems are solved together.
Today we design beautiful collections in our studio with the best available eco fabrics and carefully tailored using traditional skills in clean and fair factories. We also try to fund good projects we believe in with sustainable support and we promote good practice to all those we can reach.

Komodo works closely with their factories to ensure all garments are produced in a safe working environment where all workers are guaranteed a fair wage.
Komodo's long standing relationships with partners in Kathmandu and Java support local communities and important social projects.
All suppliers work within the Komodo ethos to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and processes.
As a member of 1% for the Planet we are committed to protecting our only home. Through this initiative we donate to the Sumatran Orangutan Society who are restoring natural rainforests and eco systems, through the purchase and repurposing of palm oil plantations.
