The Story

We turned to a rural women's artisan collective in Maheshwar, India, to create the perfect lightweight fabric for our summer suiting. These inspiring women are overcoming extreme poverty by exploring new modes of expression for a centuries-old hand weaving tradition and directing profits toward health benefits, access to microloans, and aid for their children's education. The organically grown cotton they use is sourced from local farmers, further supporting economic empowerment in the region. Learn more about their story here.
