A lovely person called Suneeta has sent me the link to her website www.suneeta-womens-clothing.com
She is recycling vintage fabrics to create new designs.
“Vintage Fabrics….Indian Inspiration
Suneeta’s fabrics are sourced from India, recycling units and charities. Wherever possible she also uses recycled trimmings, lining fabrics and fastenings taken from other garments.
The other great thing about her business is that 10 pounds from each item sold also goes towards helping children ragpickers and their families in India. Well done Suneeta!
PS. She will also deliver world-wide.
I’m so excited to come across this unique eco friendly clothing label in India. Here is how they describe their company:
“Indigreen is a fusion of art, high fashion, eco friendly values, fair trade ethics and a heavy dose of Bollywood & Indian kitsch”.
The company was started by designer Nidhi S and entrepreneur Gaurav G. They are committed environmentalists having worked on campaigns to address climate change. Their business is:
- 100% eco friendly using certified organic cotton, bamboo and hand woven organic khadhi.
- Their artists receive a proper artist fee and their employees receive 4x the going rate in the local area.
- They use 100% safe high quality, non toxic, eco friendly paints
- They give back at least 10% of their profits to Local Indian NGOs working on sustainable development.
I just love their ideas, designs and the artwork!
