The brothers Vankar Dinesh and Vankar Naran Valji are hand loom 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 their hand woven fabrics. We cherish a long term collaboration where we together will produce handwoven fabrics in organic kala cotton, always dyed with natural dyes. It is a long chain from cotton farmers, spinners and finally weavers and by producing our handwoven organic kala cotton fabrics we support the whole chain! We always try to find sustainable solutions and we never over produce any fabrics. The lead times can therefore be long and the fabrics can also be out of stock at time to time. Fabrics are sold directly by us, stay tuned!
The "handloom project" is a joint collaboration in between Linda Zetterman and Sara Carlsson and the brothers Dinesh and Naran Valji in Jamthada,Kutch, India. You can read more about our vision at "BOOM CRAFT STUDIO".

Support the Artisans
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 most of us can imagine.
We are therefore very glad that we can provide orders and continue our collaboration with Dinesh and Naran Valji in Jamthada.
As a customer you can support several organisations that can help to provide income to crafts people all over India and other countries.
