Historically, these intricately embroidered textiles originate from Central Asia and were hand stitched by nomadic tribes in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan. They were used practically for warmth and shelter but their intricate design and mesmerizing beauty gained them more heroic stature and they were presented to grooms as a handmade gift from their bride.
The Suzani's that we are working with are made in the Rajasthan region of India from 100% cotton which is naturally dyed. The collaboration with the community in Rajasthan celebrates and supports their skills and their livelihoods.
100% RECYCLED POST CONSUMER WASTE & CLOSING THE LOOP
Closing the loop on our production process is one that keeps us endlessly motivated. Limiting the negative impact we have on our planet is critically important to us. We have been researching, exploring, experimenting, learning and have finally landed - on a closed loop system.
If we want fashion to be truly sustainable, we need to consider more than just the materials or the processes we use, we need to consider the waste, the bi-products, the distribution and so much more. The majority of our garment off-cut waste we upcycle but after using up what we can to create our Upcycled ranged, we are still left with smaller bits of waste. It's the use of these 'scraps' which we have collaborated with a local post consumer recycling company to recycle into the insulating inner for our Suzani Collection and in turn, meaning that we have a zero waste production process.

Designed + made in Cape Town in a factory full of love. What is love you say? Love is a comfortable working space, where needs are considered and met, where your employment looks to improve your quality of living and not simply sustain it, where you can laugh and play and look forward to your days work. And because we don't like to rush things, that love extends to each individual garment where the quality and finish is seen to with attention to detail and pride, making each piece stay with you for as long as possible. Love is life.
