Brand Feature - Comazo
They might not be the thing on display, but they are the closest to you, your underthings. Ever been in that situation that would feel just right (or wouldn’t be as bad) if it weren’t for your uncomfortable choice of underwear? Too. Many. Times. The piece of clothing that is the most intimate also needs to be of the most clean and natural materials to vibe with your body. Thankfully there’s Comazo. Comazo offers attractive and well-made under garments, but there’s so much more.
Why Fair Trade Certified Underwear?
Comazo is committed to ethical standards and is fair trade certified, meaning, what you put on your bum has been put through rigorous social, environmental and economic standards. This means safe working conditions, environmental protection, sustainable livelihoods and allocated community development funds. Because every purchase matters in the lives of others and every piece of clothing, whether it be the sock behind the dryer or a once-in-a-lifetime green dress, has come from somewhere and has been made by someone.
Each underwear piece they produce bears the hallmark "Confidence in Textiles” which are textiles tested for harmful substances according to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. This guarantees that Comazo underwear contains no pollutants and will be well received by the largest organ in your body, your skin. Cotton fibers specifically are a fabulous choice for undergarments because they are fluffier than say flax fibers that make still natural but tougher fabrics for linen clothes. Comazo only uses organic cotton from controlled organic cultivation. This means it is grown without harmful chemicals, leaving the soil, air and water free from contaminates that cause harm. Organic cotton produces around 46% less CO2e compared to conventional cotton. It also uses far less water to grow since organic cotton growers typically utilize rain far more than irrigation. It is Comazo’s philosophy that the production of their underwear meets the highest social, human and environmental standards. We all want to hand over an intact environment to future generations to come and ethical clothing brands available in Australia, or wherever you call home, help push us in that direction. All of this happens without sacrificing comfort and quality.
Comazo places great emphasis on environmentally friendly production processes when selecting suppliers and partners for the company's production. “Effluents” or liquid waste & sewage discharged into a natural body of water, are controlled, pre-cleared and then fed into private or municipal purification plants. In 2009, at the headquarters in Albstadt, Germany, Comazo operationalised a heat recovery system which optimizes energy efficiency and results in the improvement of the CO2 balance. This is one of the world's most recently developed technologies for environmental protection.
In early 2009, Comazo became the first German underwear company to be Fairtrade-licensed. They launched into the market the first Fairtrade underwear collection made from 100% fair trade organic cotton under the brand label “comazo | earth”. You can shop this collection right here and be a part of this next generation movement of sustainable everyday items that fully satisfy your body’s need to like what it feels hugged onto it.
