What Makes It Awesome
The fate of the usual textile waste is usually a landfill where it’s incinerated. To try and reduce mindless disposal of this waste (and counter the environmental problems that come from burning the fabric), Tanushri Singhal founded Chindi.
Their collection is mostly solid-coloured products, which include slings, hold-alls and more. Each of these pieces is handmade and perfect for any casual setting.
The Chindi Women’s Centre is run out of Mankhurd, Mumbai and serves as a support base, mentoring facility and creativity launchpad for the women who make these upcycled pieces. The short-term goal at Chindi is to provide a happy, fair and satisfying work environment to these craftswomen.
