Material waste from the East Coast of Sri Lanka is collected, carefully cleaned and crafted into our pieces in a beautiful workshop by local social enterprise, Rice + Carry, located in the small east coast town of Komari.
The recycled Hessian and plastic rice bags are then teamed with natural, fair trade certificated fabric by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO), made by a handlooming group also located on the east coast of Sri Lanka in Batticola.
Our family owned natural dye studio is located in a small town of East Bali and supports a network of over 30 local artisans and 70 weavers from Java, Lombok and Bali. They harness the tradition of creating earthy tones using local plants, leaves and roots from their own garden and apply it to sustainably sourced organic cotton / linen and ramie fabrics, teaming them with raw coconut buttons. Following our slow made principals, our pattern maker is thorough in making sure material wastage is minimal and all scraps are collected and up cycled into new materials.
