A brief introduction to our team and values.
Kaapus means Cotton in Marathi.
Growing up in India; with its' vast and varying climate, there is truly no fabric superior to cotton. A perfect canvas for several regional handicraft and textile designs, cotton only gets softer and better with use.
More durable than most fabrics, cotton also is an excellent natural insulator: it stays cool in the summer and cozy in the winter.
Easy to wash and hypoallergenic, cotton is nature's gift to the planet and we are here to celebrate it in all its' glory.
We spent months searching for artisans that would sustainably help us handcraft our designs and bring them to life. Finally, we found an amazing group located in Jaipur, India and launched our first collection in November 2022. Once our designs are ready, we hand them over to our talented artisans; who dye, wash, hand print the patterns and ultimately sew and construct our ideas into real, tangible, unique pieces of art for you.
Every piece is made in small, conscious batches to ensure we don't waste. We also make upcycled products to help save excess fabric from wastage.
