Het mooie eco-merk Komodo is terug bij Very Cherry! En hoe; prachtige items van duurzaam geproduceerde bio-materialen!

Komodo is een merk geïnspireerd door de kleuren en cultuur van Azië. Hierdoor is een eclectische mix van Oosters en westers design ontstaan. Naast mooie mode, is Komodo ook heel bewust bezig met productie en materiaal, en daardoor een van de meest duurzame merken in de modewereld!
De items zijn stuk voor stuk van duurzaam geproduceerde eco materialen gemaakt, zoals organisch katoen, hennep en Tencel. De kleding wordt geproduceerd in kleine fabriekjes in Azië waar gespecialiseerde kleermakers werken en waar het welzijn van de medewerkers goed in de gaten wordt gehouden.

De materialen die Komodo gebruikt;

  Cotton is the most pesticide dependent crop in the world. Every T-shirt uses a quarter-pounders worth of toxic chemicals.
Organic cotton uses non. It’s better for the land, the water and the people… All our Organic Cotton is GOTS certified
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.
Bamboo – Smooth and luxurious to the touch, bamboo fabric keeps you cool in high temperatures, while warming you when it’s cold. The fastest growing plant in the world, it thrives naturally without need of fertilizers or pesticides and needs very little water. It’s yeild is 10 times that of a cotton crop, which is great news for the soil too.
Rayon is made from sustainable tree cellulose – it is not synthetic !
Invented in Paris over 100 years ago, it’s name derives from a word meaning ‘Rays of Light’ because it’s so good at showing colours without needing hard dyes and softners.
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 –
Linen yarns come from Flax plants – it is a historically prestigious fabric taking many skills to process it.
It’s very breathable, ideal in warm weather and has a distinguished natural look and feel –
Tencel is an award winning Eco Fibre made from tree cellulose farmed on wasteland.
It is highly economical in its use of energy and natural resources, it is bio-degradable and it feels great.
Wool – All our wool products are 100% wool and carry WOOLMARK® certification, ensuring yarns meet with the highest quality standards. Komodo does not use man made substitues or blended yarns. Our wool yarns are also 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!
