Handcrafted in Karnataka
Celebrate the spirit of 'Handmade' by encouraging rural craft & investing on mindfully crafted utilitarian products.
We use 100% cotton & no synthetics. In pic: a cotton farmer in the Gadag district.
Harvested cotton is ginned, & then carded, drawn, & combed to get the roving cotton.
Ambara charaka, a mechanical tool, is used by the rural women folk of north Karnataka to spin the yarn.
If not natural-dyed, our yarn is Azo-free VAT dyed. In pic: our dyer in Gadag district.
Warping is one of the most important processes of "designing" the textile. In pic: a ready warp frame.
Ambara charaka handspun yarn is wound both on warp and weft bobbins.
Frame-loom is used to weave our fabric. In pic: a weaver on the loom in the Hubli district.
We use reactive dyes for our hand block printing process. Our printing unit is in Bengaluru.
The women folk of North Karnataka engage in quilting, locally called 'Kowdhi' in their free time.
The women artisans of Dharwad engage in our traditional "Kasuti" hand embroidery.
Our skilled tailors have been working with us for the last 15 years. We use non-electrical sewing machines.
Our thoughtfully designed packaging can be re-used & recycled at your home.
