We use certified organic cotton for our fabric and thread, the canvas and herringbone lining are both made in India. Organic cotton is better for the soil, the farmers and their families due to the damage that can be caused by chemicals used in conventional cotton production.
Our organic cotton supplier has a small charity called ‘Loom’. They “send small amounts of money to help with scholarships, health issues or improvements to buidings for the weavers”. For their main supplier in Kerala they “pay a little over the odds for the fabric to allow Genesh to reimburse the weavers at a higher rate than would be normal for weavers”. We’re pleased to be supporting a business who are taking such a proactive approach to improving the lives of organic cotton weavers.
