José Hendo

Jose Hendo takes a fresh approach to fashion design, challenging fast fashion and the throwaway culture. The label is passionately conscious of the times and is inspired by the world around us.

It uses eco-friendly fabrics as much as possible, creating unique one-off pieces, from organic barkcloth, cotton, hemp, bamboo, upcycling used garments.

It supports ethical trading, fair working conditions and raising awareness about environmental issues especially those concerning the fashion industry.
