Our vision was to bring a new wave of sophistication to the ubiquitous ‘weed’ and sustainable fibre HEMP with the launch of our Summer Capsule Collection of relaxed but elegant silhouettes that can be worn from day to night.
The introduction of hemp amplifies Cloth & Co’s reason for being; to create positive environmental and social change for some of the world’s most vulnerable people using the vehicle of elevated essentials made in an ethical and sustainable way, employing a zero exploitation business model built on delivering positive social outcomes and, in the case of HEMP, a truly positive environmental impact.
Cloth & Co’s 100% Hemp Collection launching for SS22/23 has a luxurious hand feel much like a fine quality linen. To amplify the eco-friendly qualities of the collection, the fabric is dyed with natural dyes using locally foraged plant materials and minerals by renowned master dyer Kishor Bhai in central India. Like linen, hemp moves easily with the body, is breathable and easy to wear across different seasons. Hemp wrinkles less and softens quickly with each wash and wear.
All of the garments are individually tailored by partner stitching unit in New Delhi, providing employment opportunities for young women survivors of trafficking who had experienced sexual exploitation and abuse and are now getting dignified work under supportive conditions, skills acquisition and a viable career pathway that allows her to rise as she develops professionally; in this way Cloth & Co. is able to help set her on a positive life trajectory.
Our collection features eight elevated wardrobe essentials in three neutral colours, Iron, Walnut & White.
We hope you love this new collection as much as we do!
