The dyeing shop is a key contributor to what the company calls its "Clean Clothes Project" in south India, clothes produced in a way that promotes clean rivers, oceans, soil and air.
Today, clothing made in India strikes a perfect balance between time-honored traditions and modern best practices.
With its skillful artistry and designs that draw inspiration from Indian customs as well as nature, Indian clothing made from traditional processes is some of the most fascinating in the world.
The talented team of artisans we employ work in a close-knit community, where they oversee the final steps needed to turn our fabric into clothing and accessories before they’re sent to the U.S.
Each Folkreligion product is cut, stitched, ironed, and tagged by these accomplished artisans.
