For us, our clothes are a representation of who we are. We express our style/values through the clothes we wear and they hold memories of our journeys. When we went looking for a supplier for our first clothing line, we wanted to find someone that believed in those same values. Someone who believes in a better way of doing fashion for the environment and the people living in it!

Who are they?

Bengaluru is a small fashion boutique located in Bengaluru, India. They made a choice, from the beginning, to involve sustainable attributes to all aspects of their business.

Eco Principles

85% of all their fabrics are derived from sustainable resources and the other 15% come from high quality deadstock fabric! We chose to work with organic cotton, linen, eri (peace) silk, Lyocell (Tencel in this case) and deadstock.

All organic cotton is sourced from GOTS certified units in Gujarat and all dyes used in the making of their fabrics are azo-free and contain no plastisol's (PVC). One of our jackets is block printed using natural dyes!

Besides the physical production of their garments, they have also brought sustainability measures to other aspects of their business.

  • All fabric rolls are delivered plastic free. They use old plastic slips from 3 years ago to store the new rolls. 
  • All fabric scraps are sent to a local NGO that helps empower women through job creation.
  • No artificial light is needed during daytime hours because the studio is well lit using natural light. No air conditioning is need as the studio is extremely well ventilated!
  • All packaging is current derived from recycled materials. They are working with a new company to replace all their packaging with "a new age material".

Ethically Made

We love their devotion to traditional craft! In many cases, they chose to work with hands instead of machines which, gave their clothes a personal touch that we love here at Soluna! Many other their garments are hand woven and a few incorporate hand block printing! 

All employees receive a living wage and all employees have access to free training sessions where they can learn/advance their career opportunities. They also pride themselves on giving precedence to the physical and mental health of their employees.

Their goal is to be inclusive, fair and responsible. 

As mentioned above, all employees at their organic cotton units are GOTS certified!
