Materials

We design beautiful clothes inspired by the colours, sights and sounds of India made from a myriad of brightly coloured fabrics including recycled sari silk, cotton, viscose and recycled acrylic fleece. Our style is bohemian festival fashion with a ethnic twist for an up to the minute look and style.

 

Sari silk is collected from villages and exchanged for household implements such as cooking pots then passed to material merchants where our manufacturers hand select the saris to turn them into a beautiful new item of clothing. This barter system has been a traditional method of recycling for hundreds of years in India and still thrives to this day.

 

Our fleece clothing and blankets are made from recycled acrylic wool which is very soft and warm and unlike sheep’s wool is not at all itchy. It is very lightweight so can be worn all year round.


All the cotton we use is ethically sourced and is hand dyed so should be washed separately in cool water. We recommend you add a teaspoon of salt and a teaspoon of vinegar to the wash to help set the dye when it is washed for the first time.

 

Most of our ranges of clothing will be supplied in mixed colours and designs this is because the sari silk is a recycled fabric so each upcycled item will be unique, the viscose items will have less variation but each product can have up to 10 variations in colour or pattern. The same for our fleece ranges.  When placing an order you are welcome to state preferences of colours and we will always try our best to accomodate you and send you out an order that you are happy with.

 

We look to foster long working relationships not just with our suppliers but with our customers too!
