Taking responsibility for your daily choices is cool and even cooler if they lead to a more sustainable future. An easy and big way (two birds with one stone) you can make a difference is by choosing to invest in sustainable clothing. No, this doesn't mean ugly, boring clothes, at least not with The Cotton Staple. This homegrown brand is doing many things right but we're here for the fashion, especially their take on catering to modern tastes while staying rooted in Indian culture. Working with local artisans, their line of women and men's clothing has beautiful tunics, dresses and clean cut kurtas and shirts.
Men, for you we'd pick the Contrast Handblock Floral Shirt, perfect for your dayout and the Lotus Printed Blue Kurta, for a special occasion. Their Diagonal Placket Detail Long Kurtas in solid shades are also something you could opt for when grand events come calling. Ladies, you should check out the embroidered Tunics, Floral Midi Dresses and our fave, the Saffron Half & Half Saree.
More good news is that all Cotton Staple clothes use only vegetable dyes, and are eco-friendly made with organic, breathable cotton and mul mul. Zero waste is another philosophy they practice by using leftover fabric in kidswear or selling it to vendors who make cloth based products. Prices start at INR 1,100 upwards for adults.
