We create progressive textiles that are founded in nature. From indigenous Kala cotton to our Opsilk, our production methods offer designers environmentally friendly solutions that promote and protect traditional skills in rural areas for future generations. We working with brand partners to create and develop regenerative cotton farming systems that facilitates fair income distribution throughout the supply chain as well as supporting the traditional textile community that surrounds the farm.
