Since 1988, Komodo has been making clothing from sustainable fabrics and has been dedicated to supporting charitable social projects in the communities they work with.
The Komodo Story
The brand was founded by a group of friends travelling together, 'a brand born out of a backpack', who were inspired by the amazing talent and people they met on their adventure. Komodo blends colourful and interesting high-quality fabrics with English styles, supporting traditional fabric making and innovation, while maintaining the highest ethical standards and supporting projects with their suppliers around the world.
Komodo's Sustainability Story
Since the beginning Komodo's business ethics have always been a priority, and so they maintain close relationships with the factories that they support, visiting frequently to maintain quality and ensure fair working conditions.
They also have a long history of supporting charities and social projects that have crossed the path of founder Mark Bloom (aka Joe Komodo) over the years, raising both awareness and funds which enable these organisations to continue their important work. Through their 1% for the Planet membership, they are helping the Sumatran Orangutan Society to restore rainforests. They also support the Tibet Relief Fund, and Sunrise Orphanage Kathmandu, supporting Tibetan and Nepali communities.
Aside from their excellent social projects and relationships with their suppliers, Komodo uses a range of sustainable fabrics for their collections and are wholly committed to having a positive impact.
Why they're a Beagle Eco Hero

They are extremely transparent about the working conditions of their factories, which you can read all about. They also minimise their environmental impact through the use of sustainable fabrics, such as organic cotton, recycled PET, hemp, Tencel, and more. They're a long-standing ethical brand, who makes a tangible difference to the lives of the people they work with, and are remarkable in their dedication and transparency. They have accomplished this while still offering a range of beautiful, high quality garments, and their accomplishments with their charity partners is what makes them an Eco-Hero!
