Jacket by Komodo
UK & USA

Checked Wool Cape Jacket – £96

Made from pure wool and recycled polyester, this three-quarter length sleeved doubled breasted cape is timeless and a little retro.

Komodo has pioneered the use of eco fabrics such as organic cotton, tencel, hemp, bamboo, and other natural or recycled materials in the UK since the early 1990s. They take the welfare of the workers in the factories that produce their clothing seriously, and the brand is an Ethical Fashion Forum Fellowship 500 member.

Fairly Traded

Fairly TradedKomodo produce their garments in medium-sized family-run factories in Kathmandu, Bali, and Nepal, many of which they have been working with since the brand was founded. They spend at least two months with each of the factories that they work with throughout the year, problem solving and growing together. They say that job satisfaction is high and people are treated with respect, given safe conditions in which to work, and fair wages. Most of the factories they work with have are SA8000 certified, or have been independently audited by organisations like GOTS. According to their code of conduct, all of their producers must be paid a living wage.
