Khadi Dune Robe | iron grey stripes

SKU: Du-khadi-2
$95.00Price

This robe is the result of a lengthy process, whereby cotton fibres are carefully hand spun and hand woven by rural Bengali weavers.This lightly textured fabric is known as khadi and maintains the intrinsic properties of cotton normally damaged during the machine-spinning process. It will continue to get softer with wear. Any variations or irregularities are part of the design and inherent to the production process. 

 

On sustainability:

 

- Eco: khadi is ecologically superior; entirely hand made processes mean this item is eco-friendly. All materials are natural and thus bio-degradable.

 

- Ethical: yarn spinning is done by members of KVI, a government-supported non-profit organisation providing rural artisans with regular work. natural dying is done by a master dyer under the auspices of Khamir, an NGO supporting local crafts in Kutch. Weaving is completed by a for-profit family-run company ensuring weavers get full-year employment and fair wages. Garments are stitched in our Delhi workshop where workers receive well above the minimum wage and enjoy flexible, safe and comfortable working conditions.
