José Hendo is an eco-sustainable fashion designer who fights against the customs of fast fashion and the throwaway culture it represents. She promotes the use of organic, eco- textiles and recycled materials to create unique – often avant-garde – garments and accessories for both women and men. She supports ethical values and the environment.
José integrates wholeheartedly the concept of ‘sustainable by design’ into her work, whether by material choices, a simplified production process, or even clever cutting techniques. Ultimately, the protection of environmental biodiversity is crucial to José, and her use of barkcloth has ensured that this message is conveyed through all her designs.
As founder of the José Hendo brand and Bark To The Roots initiative (B2TR, using Ugandan barkcloth) and supporter of the R3 Campaign (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), José has won multiple awards.
