Eco-cotton, locally sourced, fabulously designed


Our fabrics are ethically and sustainably sourced from Chiang Mai. Our first collection is with Cotton, for our coming collections we will exclusively use only natural fibers, such as cotton, linen, silk, and hemp, which require fewer resources to produce, create less pollution, and decompose back into the earth much more quicker than synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon. We hope to work towards using certified fabrics  with every collection.

Our first “Weight-less Eco Collection” uses some handloom fabrics: spun and woven by hand locally, they utilize an age-old process that preserves traditional crafts, creates well-paying jobs in rural areas, and that is  not to mention just how unique, soft and beautiful the fabric itself is.

Our eco-white pieces use no dyes and have a minimal impact on the environment. Artistically it symbolizes our wish to remind urban woman to have simple mind and clutter free lives.

For our coloured ranges we use a combination of factory-dyed and hand-dyed fabrics in each collection. Our hand-dyed cotton fabrics are dyed using fiber-reactive dyes. They are designated as low impact due to their non-toxic ingredients and small water requirements.

We choose Chiang Mai to supply the eco cotton materials.  The slower approach to life, the calmness and respect to the land is what inspires us and wish to create our collections to share with urban, socially conscious women. Men and women in the past here wore clean white hand women cotton robes, they cultivated patience and respect towards the natural environment. From such a cultural lineage, this slower, patient approach can be felt, not only in the temples, but in all walks of life: laboratory researchers, factory workers or cotton farmers.

It is our sincere hope this attitude of life is woven into each cotton thread in the cloth you wear. To remind us all that our mind should remain soft, calm and pure which is the minimalism we so much needed in today’s busy urban world. Put it on, sit and move comfortably, knowing that you are safe and your integrity being authentic.
