      • Handwoven Textiles

        The historical center of beautiful textiles is India which has a textile tradition going back at least 4,000 years on two vectors. One vector is handweaving, which the market valued for sensory qualities of airiness, softness and coolness on the skin. The other is India’s unparalleled command of natural plant dyes, refined pattern designs and sophisticated, sequenced techniques of printing, dyeing and binding color to cloth. These amazingly sophisticated heritage crafts are a standard in sustainable fashion.

        Hand-spun, hand-woven textiles are made without electricity or chemicals. These heritage fabrics have an incredible, visibly different, handloom texture with story and soul. Made in small quantities, by a single tailor, these are elevated, sustainable, fair-trade clothes.
