Welcome to Komana’s World!
We love creating fun and individual clothing and textiles with bold, quirky and unique prints that tell a story, whilst carefully choosing organic and fairly traded materials and ethical production ways for the canvas of our ideas.
Our fascination with tribal art and folklore, pretty much all things out of the ordinary, the visionary world of artists, musicians and the wonders of nature serve as our never ending design inspiration.
We develop our print designs in rather old fashioned method, working with collage, free hand drawing and paint brushing. We then print our textiles with silkscreens, and manufacture with much love in London, and newly also Jaipur, India.
We hope to be able to create desirable objects and give our customers the pleasure to own something new and beautiful whilst also giving something back to our incredible planet. We are proud that for every KOMANA garment sold, we are planting a tree Niger, Africa! Thanks to Tree Nation, the planting community united against climate change, who are growing our KOMANA Forest!
KOMANA was founded by Swiss sisters Nina, a seamstress, and Livia Henne, a print designer trained at Central St. Martins in London and is currently run by Livia and her small team in London.
Sustainable and ethical production
The KOMANA collections are crafted using the finest, certified organic fabrics. The team spends a great deal of attention finding comfortable, unique and modern materials that are mostly fairly traded, and always certified organic.
We strongly believe in a fair living wage for all people involved in our production - from the workers field to the seamstresses! Non hazardous dyes are being used in the printroom, and any waste of paint is avoided, making sure noone is suffering along the whole supply chain!
Waste reduction during production is ongoing with an upcycling project in place using cut offs.
We have recently extended one arm of our production to Jaipur in India, where we work with a Fair Trade Federation accredited manufacturer who supports artisan based textile craft (such as wood block printing) and source local, organic and fairly traded fabrics.
