Cloth & Co. was founded through the shared passion and commitment for positive environmental and social change of mother Caroline, and daughter Daisy.
Caroline grew up with textiles, with two generations in the trade. In 2007 she shared her love of India with Daisy on a journey through India working with the women in the villages outside Jaipur on a block-printing project designed to empower and create long-term livelihood opportunities.
Over the next 7 years, Caroline and Daisy connected with other women’s cooperatives and saw how teaching skills and giving guidance on creating marketable products could fundamentally change lives.
In 2014, Cloth & Co. was founded. Through their experiences Caroline, the creative mind behind the brand and Daisy, graduate of a Masters of International Business, were inspired to apply their skills to a business that would combine working in the communities and making a positive impact, where everything that was created would have a purpose and change people’s lives.
Cloth & Co. was founded on the basis of providing dignified employment and creating quality products that were designed for the international market and are as sustainable as possible. Most of what we do is instinctive. We never even considered using synthetic fibres or faceless factories, we wanted to enjoy working with the people behind the products and of course wanted to ensure they were paid a living wage and benefits to support women and their children’s health and education. We are always looking for better ways to do things, it's more of a personal challenge where we invest in finding the best materials and processes that will enrich the lives of the people we work with and have a minimal impact on the environment.
In this way we can support our communities and help to sustain our business model to the benefit of people and the planet. Which is why we say Cloth & Co. is MADE FOR GOOD
