Notes on ethical production
Since inception our focus has been on celebrating traditional hand-crafted textiles; collaborating with artisans and weavers continues to be our goal. This focus is a way of preserving and promoting culture and at the same time, the very nature of artisanal production is eco-friendly. As of 2019 we have partnered with an ethical garment workshop in New Delhi, India. abacaxi clothing is made in limited editions or made-to-order. Some custom pieces are made in our Brooklyn studio or in NYC’s garment district.
We use natural fibers- cotton khadi, linen, silk, and alpaca- which are better for your body and the environment, and love upcycling sari fabric, re-purposing tees, and using wastage fabric until the last drop. Online orders are shipped using 100% recycled poly mailers.
Our philosophy is to make exquisite pieces to keep with you for seasons, perhaps generations, to come. While conscious of the fact that sustainability has become a marketing buzzword in the fashion industry, we do strongly believe in the necessity of slow fashion.
