"We are manufacturers and stockists of Organic Natural dyed clothing,bed linens, towels etc. We only work with Organic cotton, Organic Silks and Bamboo. We are a company which is working very hard in order to change the way things are done. Change in order to save our environment is very important and we are trying very hard to work for the same.Shift from Conventional clothing to Organic clothing is very important. Just by buying 1 Organic Garment or product people in-directly contribute to the green movement as making 1 Organic Garment saves more than 2000 litres of water and 15 kgs of chemicals, please refer to our website for more info on the same.
So our aim is not just to sell Organic clothing but to educate people regarding the same. Our website also has all details about our Organic cottons and Natural dyes we use. We use Herbal/Natural dyes which are received from Medicinal herbs making the complete process of making and dyeing the cloth Organic. Also because we use medicinal herbs for the dyeing the fabrics also have therapeutic value in them, they work wonderfully for Asthma,skin allergies etc. Thus its a wonderful product people get. they get an Organic product and the therapeutic value with it is a bonus."

From where do you draw your inspiration? Motivation? Ideas?

This was an amazing process to see, also they carry on Natural dyeing with herbs and plants. This added to the level of interest i build in for Natural products.Plus the changing world opinion on Organic products helped us move forward and get motivated to work with Organic textiles."
What are some challenges you currently face or have overcome in your career? Lessons learned?
