The brothers Vankar Dinesh and Vankar Naran Valji are weavers since generations back. They work and live in the village of Jamthada in Kutch, India. Our cooperation takes place completely without intermediaries and we pay reasonable prices for the hand woven fabrics. We cherish a long term collaboration where we will produce fabrics in organic kala cotton dyed with natural dyes. It´s a long chain from cotton farmers, spinners and finally weavers. You will support the whole chain when you order those hand woven organic fabrics through us! We aim to work in a sustainable way in the whole chain and will never over produce fabrics. Therefore the lead-times can be longer and the fabric will also be out of stock at time to time.
The "handloom project" is a joint collaboration in between Linda Zetterman and Sara Carlsson and Dinesh and Naran Valji in Kutch.
Stay tuned, updates will follow…
Pop Up store and web page will be released in 2021!
During this period of global crisis and precariousness, many artisans also needs support to maintain their livelihood. The situation in India is very difficult, total loc down of the country means no income for millions of people without any possibilties to get support from the government.
The effect of the quarantaine is even worse than we can imagine. We are happy that we can provide orders and continue our collaboration in a slow and sustainable way. As a customer you can support several organisations that can provide income to crafts people all over India!
