The Upasana design studio is located in Auroville in South India. Everyone who works there has a voice in business operations.

Sustainable and social

At Upasana, designing sustainable collections is a way to contribute to a cleaner environment and to support local textile workers financially and economically.

Social projects

The employees of Upasana are not only concerned with fashion. The projects they set up are just as important. For example:

  • an educational program for cotton farmers who want to switch to organic cultivation;
  • employment provision for female craftsmen who have lost everything due to major flooding;
  • working together with hand weavers who will be put under pressure by factory production.

Upasana also regularly organizes exhibitions, workshops and lectures on sustainable working in the fashion industry.
