At VAAI we believe that the fashion we bring to you should be produced ethically and sustainably. 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. 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)
A third of our collections are produced using ethical and/or natural fabrics. For example our AW18 collection used the "Silk of Peace" also known as Errandi silk, a signature fabric from Assam, India. This silks most meaningful aspect is that its production is non-violent and avoids killing of silkworms. The fibre is extracted from open-mouthed cacoons where silkworms are allowed to grow into moths. Hence no silkworm is killed in the silk production processes.
Supporting Small Production Units and Local People
The designer works closely with two small production units in Delhi, India. Both units are composed of local people & artisans and their families. The producers enjoy good working conditions, with regular breaks, good lighting and facilities. Overtime is paid where necessary.
