Our fabrics and process

We care a lot about the material we use to make our products, here is a bit of information about two of our most popular fabrics.

HAND SPUN KHADI COTTON
RECYCLED COTTON

 

Khadi cotton is a traditional cloth from India which is spun and woven by hand rather than by a powered machine. This means it carries a much lower carbon footprint. Production of one metre khadi fabric consumes just three litres of water against 55 litres consumed in a conventional textile mill.

Spinning khadi yarn and weaving khadi fabric is a family and communal activity and supports many local communities within India.

Recycled Cotton - We have found this brilliant team down in southern India who hand weave recycled cotton fabric. They shred post-industrial and post-consumer waste cotton, spin it into new yarn before hand weaving into the beautiful fabrics found within our new collection. We hope you love it as much as we do!
