8 Indian Sustainable Clothing Options You Need to Try
Thanks to modern tech, it’s as easy to shop for clothing as it is to breathe. Right from latest styles, global brands to next-day deliveries, it's a real-life fairy tale for those of us who love to play dress-up.
But there is only a thin line that distinguishes sufficiency from squandering. What is the price of the clothing items we buy so nonchalantly? It’s certainly more than the money we pay for them.
It's time to look beyond the brand label and dig deep into details like where is the fabric sourced from, where is the item manufactured, did it cause any environmental damage and if so, how much?
To make it super easy for you, we’ve curated a list of 8 Indian sustainable clothing brands you can shop from absolutely guilt free:
