We strongly believe that sustainability starts a long way prior to the stitching process and a good design should keep in mind the whole lifecycle of each garment.
By working closely with artisans and partner organizations in rural India, our brand focuses on creating a transparent supply-chain, where men and nature are harmonically integrated.
Meet the makers and find out how fashion can be a real catalyzer of big changes:
Deep in the heart of idyllic Loharghat Forest in Assam, our partner 7Weaves shows how a piece of cloth can help conserve biodiversity, empower women and bring economic freedom.
From the wild silk cocoon to the dye-yielding plants, everything is grown and harvested by indigenous communities using only native natural resources. Indigo, madder root, turmeric, lac and a wide range of plants that grow abundantly in the forest are used to create the most mesmerizing colors.
Assamese communities have been cultivating Eri silk for centuries and 7Weaves found a way to use the knowledge and creativity that have been passed down through generations to create the world’s most sustainable fabric.
Based on a green textile infrastructure, the entire production is completed by forest communities using low impact techniques. In order to preserve the Indo-Burma biodiversity, 7Weaves created a unique model based on the principles of ecological economy, increasing environmental protection altogether with production. Sustainable luxury at its finest.
