HMade Collective, represents a comprehensive approach to contribute to the beliefs and motives of the ethical fashion industry — a hope that fashion need not come at a negative price. We value the delicate balance of our environment and admire the expertise of artisanal hands, of traditional craftsmanship, who have retained their artistic heritage, in these skills, through generations.
We take a step away from the conventional norms of modern fashion, towards sustainable designing, that would help you to build your timeless, ethical closet, without compromising on your personal style. By making conscious decisions about who we work with, we aim to develop a culture of sustainability, while ensuring we reduce the environmental impact with habits of conscious consumption. Our micro ecosystem, is productively focussed on growing each other as a community, right from our organic, handwoven textile artisans to the tanneries supplying us with ethically sourced, vegetable-tanned leathers & our pattern masters.
Our products are designed in Paris & handcrafted by pattern masters and tailors in Mumbai and artisans from Jodhpur, with each product being mindfully designed to adhere to not just our creative vision but also enhance the specific, existing skills of our artisans. We are delighted to say that HMade Collective products are made in safe environments, with fair wages paid to our artisans, training them with newer design capacities and ensuring our designs make you feel good about your purchasing choices.
Furthermore, we aim to achieve a significantly circular model by incentivizing our consumers to return their HMade Collective purchases, which can again be either upcycled into another product or refurbished for sale again. We also make our own packaging, from the textile trash our garments generate, in order to limit our consumption of added materials. Read more about our Sustainable Development Efforts here.
