Fair Trade Matters

October 19, 2021

Every company draws its strength from its team of employees.  Fair trade practices allow us to draw strength from transparent and equitable working relationships, from holding ourselves accountable to everyone we work with regardless of status. 

We are both a US brand and an artisan manufacturing company based in Jaipur, India. From our inception, we have been committed to fair trade labor standards and have put into place protocols to ensure we were able to achieve them.

Fashion Revolution - RELATIONSHIPS

April 17, 2021

Our relationships across the fair trade supply chain are what make fair trade so different from fast fashion.  Relationships form between raw materials suppliers, manufacturers and artisan producers, brands and end customers.  When each relationship along the supply chain is based on equitable, transparent, respectful communication and trading practices, everyone profits.  The supply chain becomes sustainable on a human level.

Fashion Revolution - WE ARE THE REVOLUTION

Fashion Revolution - WE ARE THE REVOLUTION

April 17, 2021

A revolution must inspire deep change, not just talk or virtue signalling. 

We need to work toward a system wherein workers have a voice and have agency in this revolution.

We all need to use our ‘voice’ wisely, respect those without a voice and work to form strong, supportive, sustainable relationships in our supply chains so that workers will be visible, heard and respected.  To collaborate, to see both sides, to learn, adjust, and work toward transparency.

Fashion Revolution - Steps

April 17, 2021

The theme for Fashion Revolution 2021 is ‘Rights, Relationships, Revolution’ which addresses larger issues in the fashion supply chain, particularly those of exploitation and inequality between brands/consumers in the Global North and workers in the Global South.  As a fair trade manufacturer (located in India) and brand (both in India and the US), we have spent years developing a vertical, fair trade company (we are guaranteed members of the WFTO, number 1047).  Our mission is to ensure fair trade practices, improve our sustainability profile and be a force for good in the fashion industry.

Women-led.  Leadership at Mehera Shaw

Women-led. Leadership at Mehera Shaw

March 07, 2021

As the co-owner and executive director of Mehera Shaw, I have often been asked what it’s like as a women, to run a fair trade, artisan manufacturing company based in India. . . . At the core of my own leadership style as a woman, is showing respect—for the individuals, their skills, their families, the context of their lives and the culture.  I find leadership is more about understanding every situation from another person’s perspective than telling people what to do.

We use a fit guide for each of our styles to provide more information about the fit that was intended.

Slim Fit: a close fit to the body. Regular Fit: a comfortable, relaxed fit with room around the body. Generous Fit: a very loose fit (such as in our oversized blouses) with lots of room around the body for ease of movement.

WASHCARE

All garments have been washed several times during the printing/dyeing and manufacturing process.  

CARE for 100% cotton

We recommend cold water machine wash (up to 30 degrees celsius) with a bio detergent and either tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade for all of our 100% cotton garments/homewares (except for quilts).  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.  

Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Cold water wash and low heat drying or line drying in the shade will increase the life of the garment, prolong the vibrancy of the colors and reduce energy use. Shrinkage on all cottons is minimal, approximately 3%.

Garments/homewares are dyed or printed using AZO free, low-impact, pigment or reactive dyes unless otherwise noted.  These dyes are color-fast, but care should still be taken to wash with like colors to retain the vibrancy of the colors.

CARE for 100% cotton quilts

For quilts with cotton fill, we recommend spot or light surface cleaning only with a damp cloth and mild detergent.  Eco-friendly dry cleaning is also recommended. 

CARE for herbal/vegetable dye items

Vegetable dyes are not colorfast and are specifically marked in the product description.  We strongly recommend that all vegetable dye products be washed once before use in a cold water wash with minimal detergent.  Wash separately. Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  Iron on reverse side.  Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Please keep in mind that indigo dye does continually fade over time.  This is the nature of true indigo dye and is not a defect, but rather a sign of the 'living' nature of the dye.

CARE for silk and cotton/silk

For our silk and cotton silk garments/homewares, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water (up to 30 degrees celsius) or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.  

Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.

Do not use bleach or stain remover.

Dry cleaning using an eco-friendly service is also recommended.

CARE for linen and cotton/linen

For our linen and cotton linen garments/homewares, we also recommend gentle cycle machine wash cold water (up to 30 degrees celsius) or delicate hand washing to increase the life of the garment and reduce the environmental footprint from energy use, detergents and water wastage.  

Tumble dry on low heat or line dry in shade.  

Iron on reverse side of garment following fabric settings.

Do not use bleach or stain remover.
