Ethical meets ecommerce as Komodo chases the social shopping dragon Monday 12 December 2011 PDF Print Ethical fashion brand Komodo is pushing its eco-friendly message to a whole new online market of environmentally and socially conscious customers, thanks to the innovative social shopping platform Gloople. Komodo seamlessly combine sustainable production with cutting edge fashion, using natural and eco-friendly fibres like organic cotton, hemp and 100% pure wool to produce high quality clothing and accessories for women and men, which are sold worldwide – and now online. Its products are inspired by fun, travel and of course, fair trade. Komodo’s Kathmandu factory is currently the only facility in Nepal to achieve SA8000 certification, the internationally recognised standard for human rights in the workplace. They continue to work closely with the Made-By organisation as they strive to improve their other manufacturing facilities so that they might also be award such certification. Named after the large dragon-like lizard that tried to eat founder Joe (now known as ‘Joe Komodo’) during his halcyon days of backpacking across the world, Komodo has been going strong for over two decades and has seen many changes in the fashion world since it first started out in 1988, when Joe roped in some old Bristol friends to realise his dream. In 2011, ethics met ecommerce when Komodo partnered with industry-lauded Gloople, the easy-to-use and completely customisable ecommerce platform that gives small and niche businesses the impact of a big brand.
