Eco-Komorebi is a fashion and lifestyle website that works with environmentally concerned brands and designers. Our contents are focused on those initiatives that care about the origin and treatment of the materials, the useful life of their products and their recycling possibilities. This is, brands that worry about their ecological footprint. Furthermore, we are to a special degree interested in small-scale production processes, in which each item still keeps a craft dimension.

According to the United Nations (Oslo symposium, 1994), Sustainable consumption and production (SCP) is about “the use of services and related products, which respond to basic needs and bring a better quality of life while minimizing the use of natural resources and toxic materials as well as the emissions of waste and pollutants over the life cycle of the service or product so as not to jeopardize the needs of further generations.”

So, it is about time to start demanding a strongly committed environmental policy from all actors in society. Both companies and we individuals have a crucial responsibility to make a conscious use of the resources we have access to. Thus, we believe fashion and design reach their top expression when they are able to commercialise products that have been manufactured on an ecological basis. Here there is talk of unique creations who contribute to a fair market and help us to keep some optimistic thoughts when imagining the future.
