Earth Day Talk: Sustainability is Imaginable!

Thursday, April 22 is Earth Day

It’s an event that has become important more than ever before. We recognize our buying habits will continue to dictate the debate of our planet’s health and well-being. Where our products come from, who is behind them, and its impact on local and global environment plays an important role in this deliberation. Fair Trade principles emphasize the importance of environmental and human safety, welfare and happiness.

We are proud to do our little bit, by adhering to fair trade practices and to feature some of our most environmentally-friendly, reusable cloth napkins for Earth Day month!

Organic Cotton Napkins

Organic Cotton Napkins

We partnered with a local community to use indigenous organic cotton, to create napkins. This cotton is grown without synthetic pesticides, herbicides or insecticides, and is never genetically engineered. Natural, plant-dyes are used in creating this collection.

Flax Linen Napkins

Flax Linen Napkins

Linen is one of the most biodegradable and stylish fabrics in the textile home goods sector. It is strong, naturally moth resistant, and made from flax plant fibers. Flax grows naturally and requires no additional irrigation other than rainwater, making it one of the most eco-friendly fabrics. Our flax linen napkins are also woven by hand and made in small batches with incredibly low impacts to the environment, without modern machinery. The small amount of water that is used, is treated before its release back into the environment.
Kora Unbleached Cotton

Kora Unbleached Cotton Napkins 

Kora in Hindi means raw and unprocessed. This cotton uses no harsh chemical dyes and therefore requires a negligible amount of energy, resulting in a less harmful method of textile production. Dyed with low impact, azo-free dyes that are stamped by hand and made in assembly-free, small artisan workshops.

All projects are Earth-friendly, which entails they help disadvantaged handicraft artisan communities, aim to improve the socio-economic status of the community, practice mindfulness toward the environmentand above all, keep dying arts alive!
