Indian cotton is rare. Indigenous cotton species of India are almost completely displaced by the American species. Via India supports designers who work with farmers who grow these old, indigenous cotton species.
Manual spinning and weaving is called khadi in India. An expression that symbolizes India's independence. In the 1930s, Mahatma Gandhi began to spin and weave his own clothes. Many politicians followed his example. It was an economic strategy to send a signal to the British who flooded the Indian market with their own textiles.
Khadi is the opposite of fast fashion. If you buy clothes from khadi, you help local hand spinners and weavers. They work in freedom, get respect for their skills and get paid properly.
The blue dress is dyed with vegetable indigo, without the use of polluting substances. Indigo can turn out to be deep blue, light blue or even green. It depends on how long the fabric is dipped in the indigo substance.
