Our supply chain.
Our traceability process begins with an organic cotton bud hand planted in the Ahmedabad region of India.
All of our cotton is hand planted and handpicked in natural carrying monsoon regions to avoid further irrigation and forced agriculture. The cotton is free from any genetically modified organisms or use of chemical fertilizers.*
80 billion square meters of excess fabric are sent to landfills each year (Reverse Resources). We ensure that 100% of all cotton planted and harvested by our producers is used sustainably. Any waste leftovers from cutting and dyeing go into rope production for local communities.
Renewable Energy & Water
All of our garments are produced using wind turbines and solar panel renewable energy.
Every year, the fashion industry uses 93 billion cubic meters of water - enough to the consumption needs of 5 million people. Our suppliers run on a controlled closed-loop purification system which uses treatment ponds, sand filtration, and reversed osmosis to convert any waste water into clean water, ensuring no damage to local water systems.
All of our cotton farms are in regions which receive sufficient monsoon rainfall to ensure that cotton growth is natural and no added water is needed. This drastically decreases the need for large-scale irrigation projects (which are associated with conventional cotton farming) that drain the lakes and rivers of local villages.
There is a large case of exploitation of garment workers in the fashion industry, especially in fast fashion, known as ‘sweatshop labour’. Our supplier goes through an independent audit by the Fair Wear Foundation, which improves fair labour conditions in the clothing industry and ensures our cotton farmers are treated humanely.
Embroidery of the final garments takes place in London and adheres to the highest UK working standards. All inks are phthalate free and vegan.
Our labels are 100% organic cotton & hand-stitched.
Our packaging is made from renewable materials, a natural vegan starch that is compostable and biodegradable. You can also reuse the packaging, but once you're done, be sure to recycle or throw the packaging into the compost! In addition, we don’t include any add ons (tissue paper, stickers) to purposefully reduce waste.
We work with carbon neutral shipping services and offset on top of that to ensure carbon negativity throughout our entire process.
We cannot solve the world’s transportation and energy security issues, but we can ensure that our own processes do not contribute to environmental damage, social injustice or climate change. To ensure we don’t miss any steps, we offset one-hundred-fold to even take account for your carbon footprint when you wash your Komorebi garments throughout its lifetime.
*Our cotton is 100% organic and follows the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), as well as being certified by the Fair Wear Foundation, Control Union and the Soil Association.
