Artisans from South Africa and India
The Bakhtiari collection was ethically made in South African and India. The embroidery on all of our pieces is done entirely by hand by talented embroiderers in Lucknow and Mumbai, India. We continue to value and champion hand-embroidery, which is sadly a dying art due to the increase in popularity of machine-embroidery.
The cotton used in the Bakhtiari collection is organic cotton that is traditionally handwoven, hand-loomed in one of the last remaining traditional mills of its kind in South India. The silks are sustainable, with OEKO-tex certification and cut and embroidered in India.
