PhilosophyMehera Shaw’s commitment is to a cradle-to-cradle approach to fashion. We believe sustainable fashion is only sustainable through quality design, which wears well over time and reflects the story of its production. We use sustainable fabrics such as handloom wool, ahimsa silk, certified organic cottons, artisan textiles, and upcycled textiles in every collection. We use only fair labour garment production and actively look for partnering with artisan textile projects supporting innovative development in upcycling, and micro social enterprise. Mehera Shaw believes that good design can and does go hand-in-hand with beautifully made, artisan textiles; that sustainability, small-scale production and good design are a good fit and the way of the future.
