This week, we all joyfully celebrated World Environment Day and many individuals and brands doing conscious work were celebrated. In India especially, there is a steep rise in designers and artists choosing to make sustainability the pillar of their labels. Here are some brands and designers you should be looking out for!
- Korra Jeans
With a beautiful studio and workshop in Delhi, Korra Jeans brings you the best in denim for men and women, created from raw or recycled materials. What’s better is that everything is sourced locally and they stay accountable every step of their manufacturing process.
- Viange Vintage
This jewellery company has been around since 2011, but with the vintage trend on the up, Viange Vintage has gotten more eyes on their luxury vintage pieces. After all, old is gold!
- IT by Amit Aggarwal
Amit Aggarwal’s sustainable spinoff label utilizes industrial waste like plastic and old CDs, and saree scraps to create beautiful couture clothing. Designers like Amit can really set an example for many others to do the same!
This 100% organic brand has been around since 1997 and works with communities of farmers and weavers as well. The company puts a big focus on cutting environmental costs, so not only do they use organic materials but they allow that same idea of consciousness to empower local communities.
- No Nasties
This Goa based brand uses only organic cotton that is Fair Trade, which protects our farmers and weavers. Clothing that is not made by compromising ethical standards is something we hope we see more of across India!
