FASHION WITH A CONSCIENCE

Vegan shoes, organic men styles and bamboo-framed sunglasses… LOL. Sounds hilarious, doesn’t it? But this a great concept and is in fact fashion with a conscience. In my quest for summer shoes that are made and packaged without plastic, I came across komodo.co.uk, a UK based company who have made sustainable fashion since 1988. Most of it is made with sustainable materials like organic cotton and with solid ethical values for both the production workers and the environment as far as I can tell. I bought the shoes in Stroud’s Brilliant Disguise shoe shop and it had a little label, tied on with a piece of hemp string, saying: for every pair of shoes sold we plant a bamboo shoot. How nice is that? The shoes are great – comfortable, hard wearing and funky. The soles are made from used car tyres. I will come back to this company for clothes and gifts. And definitely for a pair of bamboo sunglasses!
