GRASSROOTS WORK

 

As connoisseurs of cultural traditions of arts, crafts, and design, we believe in working at the grassroots with authentic, high-skilled artisans, employed and empowered at their home ateliers, united to their local craft ecology. At the same time, safe and warm with their families.

 

We manage our in-house artisanal supply chains. We collaborate with existing artisanal supply chains. We also work with specialized tech skills or mills and add our expertise to ongoing research on innovations in sustainable textiles. We work across supply chains to create one-of-a-kind materials.

 

Our vast slew of offerings in sustainable textiles and textile crafts offer our clients the creative freedom to source or develop raw materials as a combination of multiple artisanal techniques without worrying about logistics & production details.
