A weavers’ co-operative in north India established in 1944, produces our fine wool Kullu shawls, using traditional decorative designs with an elaborate design on the border of the shawl. This co-operative won a National Award from the Government of India for their excellent hand loom products. All their products carry the Handloom Mark introduced by the Indian government in 2009, to prove the authenticity of their products.

Our ethical producers in east India supply fine wool stoles. The aims of this organisation are to provide village based,livelihood opportunities and to work only with natural dyes.

Our smallest suppliers work with tribal communities such as the Jaunpuris and the Bhotias in Uttarakhand, northern India. They are skilled spinners, dyers and weavers, who for generations traded between India and Tibet. All their hand-woven products are environmentally friendly as they are made using only natural fibres and natural dyes.
