We have close relationships with the people making our products, from sourcing partners and factories to artisan communities. The bonds we are forming have resulted in creating garments of the highest quality and have also allowed us to contribute towards sustaining and preserving artisanal traditions that may otherwise be lost.
MEET THE MAKERS
We work with KGS Intl, a factory in India that has been in business for over 25 years. Many of the workers have been committed employees that entire time. During the pandemic, when the factory was in danger of closing, three of those employees—Kamluddin, George, and Sunil—decided to pool together personal funds to purchase the factory in 2021. Their extensive industry knowledge and prior relationships with buyers have enabled them to slowly grow their business while still operating as a small, worker-owned factory.
In addition to our factory partners in Delhi, we also work with Khamir, a non-profit organization that represents artisans in the Kachchh (Kutch) region of northern India. All of the 100% hand-spun, hand-woven organic Kala cotton that we use comes directly from our partners at Khamir. We are currently in the process of developing relationships with makers throughout India and beyond to design upcoming collections. It is through these partnerships that we are able to bring our blend of modern design + ancient textile arts to you — our community.
PRESERVING ANCIENT CRAFT
Our roots as a brand are in the artisanal traditions passed down through the ages, from batik and block printing to beading, embroidery, and natural dyeing. We recognize and honor the artisans, weavers, tailors, and textile artists we work with because it is through their exceptional craftsmanship that their stories endure—preserving their ancient techniques for the next generation of makers.
