At VAAI we believe that the fashion we bring to you should be produced in a socially responsible manner that favours the planet and its people. Here's what we are doing to make sure that you can purchase a beautiful VAAI garment with a clear conscience.
The collections are kept small and prduced in limited runs. This way all pieces are sold with no leftover of garments after the season is over. No wastage. Slow fashion is about consuming and creating fashion consciously. Making beautiful, well-made and lasting clothing (as compared to fast fashion). We endeavour to design styles and use fabrics that are transeasonal, meaning they can be used all year around.
Over two thirds of our collection are produced using natural fabrics including silks, cottons, GOTS certified organic cotton and linens. For example our AW18 collection used the "Silk of Peace" also known as Errandi silk, a signature fabric from Assam, India that allows the silkworm to undergo its natural life cycle.
The designer works closely with two small production units in Delhi, India. Both units are composed of local people & artisans that are paid a fair wage. The producers enjoy good working conditions, with regular breaks, good lighting and facilities. Overtime is paid where necessary.
We continue to implement new strategies to be socially responsible, with yearly goals. As the business continues to grow, we want to be more traceable, use natural and AZO-free dyes, reduce our carbon footprint further. We work closely with our production units to ensure that fabric waste is kept to a minimum.
