From inception, COMMAS has been committed to conducting business responsibly, positively impacting both the environment and the communities in which we operate.
An appreciation for the natural world is key to COMMAS. We are committed to protecting the environment and taking action wherever possible to protect the natural world.
Our approach to sustainability is anchored in thoughtful, timeless design, ethical manufacturing, and sustainable textiles.
50% of the collections are handcrafted in Australia by skilled artisans, while the rest of our collections are made with ethical manufacturing partners in Portugal, Italy and China. Our fabrics are sourced from family-owned mills across Europe and Japan. One, in particular, has been in operation since 1839, where traditional fabric weaving techniques have been passed down through multiple generations.
Working with mills who are at the forefront of textile innovation is important to us, our swimwear is comprised of recycled polyamide from Europe, and our organic cotton is grown in Australia. Our luxury zips and hardware are created through the use of modern technology and materials, to ensure the strongest and best quality, made to last a lifetime.
We believe the way to be a modern business is to truly understand the impact we have on the environment. We make decisions to put sustainable actions in place to create a business that works with the environment, rather than against it. We currently offset carbon emissions for all freight and flights and are working to achieving net-zero emissions for our small facility.
Improving the quality of human life is fundamental to everything we do at COMMAS. Our social sustainability approach incorporates processes and structures that meet the needs of our community and also aims to support the ability of future generations to maintain a healthy and progressive community. This includes respecting human rights in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights, health and safety for all employees and collaborators, inclusion and diversity, and women’s empowerment in both our business and the businesses we choose to partner with.
Sustainability lies at the heart of COMMAS, and we are committed to the ongoing journey of creating a thoroughly responsible business.
