Komrads contributes to the Fashion Revolution

Fashion Revolution Week 2020 is still upon us. Today especially, we take a moment to remember the tragic event at the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh, exactly 7 years ago. Every year Fashion Revolution inspires thousands of brands around the world, including Komrads, to be transparent. Year after year Komrads contributes to the Fashion Revolution.

Komrads APL: a genuine solution to the problem

To this day, there are still myriad problems that continue to afflict our planet. Many of those are connected to the fashion industry. However, Komrads APL is here to provide a genuine solution to these problems.


Being transparent about ‘composition’ is one of this years themes of the Fashion Revolution Week. So they launched the hashtag #WhatsInMyClothes. Therefore, at Komrads we fully disclose what our sneakers are made of:

We make the upper entirely with eco apple leather ( – Yes, it’s vegan!)

The sole contains 100% recycled pure rubber.

We create the lining with recycled PET bottles & cotton

Lastly, ArneTech (our insole producer) makes the insole out of recycled carbon

As it’s Fashion Revolution Week 2020 you can enjoy 20% off when buying a pair of APL’s.

Using the unused to make something new

Sneakers made of apple leather? We know, crazy right? We use waste from the apple juice Industry. Frumat, our apple leather producer, develops this waste (apple peel and core) into a new raw material, an ecological alternative to leather.
