OUR ETHOS

We want our customers to not only love our wonderful scarves, bags and cushions, but also be happy with the way they are produced, we want to be as transparent as possible  and to share our values with you.

 

All of our products are made with accredited fair trade working standards and practices.

Our specialist printmakers are a small family company in Kolkata, India, which has been running for three generations. The business employs skilled craftsmen and women in printing, weaving, and handwork, whose same families have worked with them since the business started in 1932.

 

We try to use sustainable materials where possible: silk and cashmere are both renewable materials with low environmental impact and can be recycled;  modal is a renewable, biodegradable fabric made from soft wood trees; our gift and postal boxes are made from recycled, sustainable materials. 

 

By using our own weavers our fabrics are woven to specific widths so cutting fabric to waste is minimised. We know that printing dyestuffs are harmful to the environment but by using digital printing there is less use of water and chemicals than traditional screen printing, the inks are AZO dye free, and there is no waste of fabric.

 

We are just starting and we are working on more ways of bringing beautiful products with minimal environmental impact.
