Kala cotton is one of the signature materials at ABIS.
It is a 100% rain fed crop and is grown naturally in the arid regions of Kutch, Rajasthan. Local farming communities cultivate the crop without the use of any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. This type of cotton is water efficient and has minimum carbon footprint.
We source our kala cotton directly
from the farmers of Kutch.
This creates the cotton yarn which is then hand dyed using natural dyes, typically by the Khatri community who are traditional dyers.
Once the yarn is dyed and ready, it is then prepared to be woven by hand on pit looms.
in a small way through our 'weave to wardrobe' initiatve.
