Timeless silk has been cherished since 2800 BCE. This luxury fabric symbolizes pride - preserving the rich diversity of the Indian culture and craftsmanship. Our one-of-a-kind up cycled vintage silk saris celebrate legacy; honoring the narrative of the past and inspiring new stories. A vibrant canvas for unique expression, your silk sari effortlessly elevates any outfit in celebration of life’s special moments. By up-cycling saris, we use zero new resources for fabric production.
CARING FOR SILK
Silk may be one of the strongest natural fibers, but it is delicate and needs to be cleaned with care. Hand wash in cold water with your favorite Eco-friendly liquid detergent. Do not leave silk sitting in water for an extended period of time. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water. Press in a dry towel to remove excess water. Hang to dry in the shade. To remove wrinkles, iron on low temperature. You may also take silk to an environmentally friendly dry cleaner.
It is best to store your silk garments by hanging them in a cool, dry place. Silk accessories can be kept folded in a drawer. All textiles are best kept out of direct sunlight to preserve fiber strength and color.
Beloved as one of the world's oldest textiles, linen is elegant and imbues casual sophistication to your wardrobe year-round. This comfortable, durable, high-quality textile is derived from the mighty flax plant fiber and gets softer with age. Linen is a naturally “green” fiber: it is biodegradable and does not require fertilizers or pesticides for growth. A perfect companion for a hot summer's day in the garden, or lounging around your home on a crisp fall evening.
CARING FOR LINEN
For a casual look, machine-wash cold. Immediately after washing, hang dry in the shade to prevent wrinkles. If a crisper look is desired, iron inside out while the garment is still slightly damp. Avoid high-temperature settings that can scorch linen, damaging the fiber and resulting in a shiny appearance.
Our durable and luxurious-to-touch cotton is grown without pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides – preserving the environment and the health of local communities. Compared to conventional cotton, certified organic cotton saves an average of 1,982 gallons of water during the creation of an average t-shirt. Best if worn while registering people to vote, riding a bike, planting a tree, or picking up trash.
CARING FOR COTTON
Wash cotton with similar colors for best results. Machine wash cold, tumble dry low for a relaxed look. Hang your cotton to line-dry in the shade or on a hanger to avoid wrinkles. If you’re like us and really hate ironing, line-dried textiles have a wonderful clean smell and a casual-cool lived in look.
