Cotton is the most pesticide dependent crop in the world. Every T-shirt uses a quarter-pounders worth of toxic chemicals. Organic cotton uses none. It's better for the land, the water and the people. That's why all of our Organic Cotton is GOTS certified - Joe Komodo says... Be Nice !
Recycled PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is the material used to make plastic drinks bottles. We recycle this to make polyester fibre used in our collections. While we always strive to use natural fibers sometimes its necessary to use something man-made. - Joe Komodo says… I used to get wasted, now I recycle!

Smooth and luxurious to the touch, bamboo fabric keeps you cool in high temperatures and warms 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 yield is 10 times that of a cotton crop, which is great news for the soil too.- Joe Komodo says... Grow baby grow !
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 softeners. - Joe Komodo says... Shine On !
Hemp fibre comes from the cannabis sativa plant which grows densely and swiftly in poor soil to a height of up to 4 metres! By capturing very high levels of carbon dioxide, it produces a yield 3 to 4 times more than most substitutes, such as cotton, without the need of agro-chemicals. It is also the most useful plant on the planet, used in over 25,000 products worldwide! What's more, all of our Hemp fabrics are GOTS certified. Joe Komodo says... Hemp Works !
Komodo wool is 100% pure and is sourced from countries that do not practice Mulesing. We do not use man made substitutes or blended yarns.
Please note however, our wool is not currently certified organic - this is something we are working on and hope to have in production in the very near future!
Our wool garments are often hand knitted and always hand finished. This means every piece can have minor variations which is a sign of it's individuality.... not an imperfection! - Joe Komodo says... Vive la difference
