Cloth & Co. have partnered with the Peoli women who do hand knits based in Almora located at the southern edge of the Kumaon Hills of the Himalayan Range in Uttarakhand, North India. We have developed this partnership as our guiding principles are so aligned with Peoli’s which are based on a conscious effort towards conservation of natural resources and leaving a light carbon footprint in the process.
Our jumpers are hand knitted from Indigenous Cotton and naturally dyed using Walnut Shells.
Sadly, the wonderful women artisans in Almora have been hit with a second wave of COVID-19. With meagre savings and limited information and access to healthcare, it breaks our heart to see women artisans of the region struggle now to bring in money and put food onto their families' plates.
To help play our part, we will be donating 10% of all knit sales back to the wonderful Peoli women, to provide them with necessary medical supplies and reduce wage loss incurred during this time.
Cloth & Co is a humbling social enterprise using ethical fashion to partner with women’s cooperatives throughout India and Asia to empower women across the world.
Their products are made from GOTS certified organic cotton, handwoven linen and some silk. Further, they are made in SA8000 approved factories to ensure that they abide by ethical fashion principles.
100% of their profits go towards empowering women and that is something we can all support!
