LES INDIENNES

In 2002, Mary Mulcahy had a vision of naturally dyed cotton with airy patterns of big, single-colored motifs. Unable to locate something similar on the market, she decided to create her own. In a tiny village in southern India, she found a craftsman named Srinivas, who is one of very few craftsmen who still practice the ancient art of kalamkari, a complex printing method. The production of the brandโ€™s fabric uses no electricity, does not cause pollution, and does not disrupt the traditional lifestyle of the village where it is made. Les Indiennes provides fair-trade employment for more than 50 families, raising the standard of living for the entire community, all the while leaving no environmental or social footprint.
