The Artisans

These products are made by rural men and women who find viable employment through a selfsufficient and environmentally sustainable supply chain in the villages where they live. In a region where small farms are many families' only source of income, being involved in activities like spinning, dyeing and weaving help sustain rural livelihoods during the offseason. Cocoonrearing in former wasteland has given local farmers an additional source of income and involved other members of the family related activities such as vermicomposting and production of organic manure.

The Avani Story

Nestled in the Himalayas of Kumaon, Avani is a small community built on the principles of sustainability, local empowerment and rural development through the creation of livelihoods. Fusing traditional techniques with sustainable technologies, Avani's farmers and artisans produce exquisite, oneofakind textiles. All the products are made using 100% natural materials, including plantderived dyes, sustainably harvested indigo, and locallyproduced silk and wool. 

Your Impact

The entire process of producing this textile is a closed cycle and leaves close to zero carbon footprint. Care is taken at each stage to make the process environment friendly through the adoption of locally available, natural materials, plantbased dyes, clean energy, and hand spinning and weaving. Your purchase supports sustainable, conservationbased livelihood generation for rural communities that are suitable to the contexts in which they live.

Why we like it

Soft, warm and elegant, this is an accessory that will make the perfect gift. We also love that the entire process of producing this stole respects the principles of sustainability. From the natural dyes to the use of solarpowered spinning wheels and recycling of used water, it leaves close to zero carbon footprint.

Maya says

As a lover of natural fibres, I love this exquisitely handwoven shawl. It is incomparable in its softness and warmth. Besides its great looks, there's also the feelgood factor of knowing that it is made sustainably, provides employment to indigenous people and aids development in the Himalayan region.
