Fast fashion is irksome because of the way it eliminates the artisans. In a world where machines are increasingly taking over, and convenience is the thumb rule, factors like sustainability, originality and cultural preservation is a miss. Tribe of Textiles (ToT), a combination of original hand-woven textile retailer and a medium to spread awareness about indigenous practices, is attempting to set this right by working directly with the artisans and maintaining fair trade practices.
Started by Aditi Dash, ToT got initiated thanks to her own choice of wearing clothes stitched out of beautiful and ingenuine textiles. Standing tall and firm against mass production that’s both cruel to the environment and the workers, she chooses to invest in things that have more meaning, more value, and is a part of the rich heritage. And this is the thought she wishes to spread as far and wide as possible.
