The label hand-stitched into the bag features the geo-coordinates of the village in North-West Bangladesh where it’s made, the hand-embroidered name of the mother who made it, and the product’s unique number.

Every purchase comes with a unique story attached – and creates an opportunity for a mother in Bangladesh to provide for her children with dignity.

 

HOW IT'S MADE:

Our handmade textile rework the Bengali 'kantha' tradition of repurposing old cotton saris into ultra-soft blankets, in order to meet global safety standards, while retaining its circular principles.

Rather than using secondhand saris, we've partnered with a GOTS-certified Bangladeshi garments factory to breathe new life into what's known as 'deadstock cotton fabric, by upcycling it as the inside layers of our products. The outside layers are made from traditional handloom fabric, which is hand-woven, and then hand-dyed to our custom colour palette using Oeko-Tek Eco passport-certified dyes.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Our products have all been pre-washed multiple times, to ensure the fabric doesn't shrink and the colours don't run.

Protect the environment: Gentle wash at 30 degrees, with similar colours. Do not tumble dry or dry clean.
