THE DESIGNER STORY
We started with the aim to reduce and reuse waste produced by our parent company Shivam International- a company that manufactures garments and exports them. And in the process of upcycling what we receive from the company, we utilize crafts that are indigenous to India. We started with our focus on handloom weaving, specifically on rag rug weaving. We enjoy perceiving crafts that would be considered “lowbrow” by larger populous through the lens of quality and design. This for us is an act of rebellion against “conventional luxury norms” a fact that amuses us on this zero waste journey. Introducing and inculcating quality and design within a traditional craft also allows the craftspeople to fetch a fair wage and not just a minimum wage.
Women throughout history who have dared to foster independent thinking have been accused to be under the influence of the moon. ‘MoonWash’ celebrates these personalities from yesterday, today and tomorrow. MoonWash is a celebration of these independent thinkers, change-makers, our inspiration, who paved the way for us to exist. MoonWash is a celebration of moonwashed people. MoonWash is a celebration of you.
