Belle Khadi

Belle Khadi features cooperative fabrics like tusser silk, ikkat and Matpalli cotton, hand woven in villages in Eastern India. During India’s struggle for independence, freedom fighters wore khadi – a Hindi word for hand-made -- woven from homespun yarn to boycott colonial textiles. Wearing cooperative textiles helps support local economies and keeps these indigenous art forms alive.

Bengali Girl

Bengali Girl is an ode to the ageless elegance and ancient textiles of West Bengal, India. It recalls the feminine, modern glamour of 1950s black-and-white Bollywood cinema, and infuses it with colors inspired by nature’s bountiful landscape. Bengali weavers have been hand-weaving the silks and linens featured in this collection for centuries. The production of "garad" silk was at a standstill prior to the launch of Bengali Girl in 2006. Buying cooperative silks and cotton support age old traditions and help further their development.

Ticket to Ikkat

Ticket to Ikkat: Travel to India by way of Ikkat, an ancient weaving technique with multiple avatars all throughout Asia. This collection of dresses features the saris of Orissa, India, home to a 2000 year-old history of Ikkat weaving. The woven motifs of the fabrics feature the ubiquitous triangular temple borders, and the bhomkai chakras, an homage to the great Sun temple of Konark. All dresses are made of 100% silk and/or cotton and have been sourced from textile cooperatives outside Bhubhaneshwar.  These weaving centers ensure the survival of this ancient tradition and support the artisans who pass the torch of their craft from one generation to the next.
