The clothing is made by Hibiscus Heroes, a favorite local (Auroville, India) designer of mine. The clothing is eco-friendly, ethically made, handmade fashion using plant-based fabrics and dyes. The pictures don’t really do the material justice as they are meticulously made. You can contact me for more details if you'd like as I know some of the pictures don't show the full piece.
The founder, Sowmya, spent 15 years in Europe designing for big fashion houses and returned to India to produce fashion she could feel good about from all angles. I have brought only one piece of each style (9 total) on this trip so once it is gone that will be it! I hope to bring more on future visits! Contact me to purchase while I'm in the US.

Plant based dyes for color.
Our clothes are naturally dyed & handcrafted, so there might be slight difference in texture or color. We celebrate this as it adds to the unique beauty of our products.
Machine wash COLD on a gentle program with similar colors
Do not soak or wring the garment, simply drip dry or squeeze gently
Important: dry only in the SHADE
Wash, dry and iron INSIDE-OUT
Use gentle or natural detergent ( pH Neutral soap)
Like all dyes, natural dyes fade with time. They give the garment a vintage look that we admire and celebrate.
As we use organic natural dyes we prewash our fabrics, but in a very rare case the color might bleed during the first wash, after that this should not happen anymore.
