When you buy our handmade products, you lessen your carbon footprint on the Earth and help a child to continue his/her school education.
It is a reality that our consuming pattern in fast fashion made the fashion industry as the second highest environment pollutant! Our whole working model is sustainable, following the circular economy and conscious process of conserving energies.
All our products are consciously made by hand and with love. We collect scraps (textile waste/ plastic waste ) before it end up to dustbins and landfilll. After that, we sanitize our scraps,clean those, Sun dried and then we start sorting scraps according to the design concepts. We use minimal electricity, our machines are run by human, not by electricity and also our water usage is bare minimum. Our production yields literally "zero waste". The tiny scraps which are generated while we are making our products, are also reused strategically as fillers and other ways.
So far, we have saved 100,000 gms of textile scraps going to landfill and re-used them into beautiful designer products. We work in a slow fashion mode to produce low carbon footprint products.
Our products are handmade by a group of women who are brave to restart their lives amidst the crime and violence. The area where they live and where we work together, is an infamous tsunami settlement area of Chennai. This tsunami settlement, Kannaginagar is a violent place with gang wars and narcotics menace which made the lives of the women and their children in a difficult situation.There, in Kannaginagar, the common future of the children is to become juvenile!
Lily & The Wonder Women aims to support these women to have a sustainable decent livelihood and we are in constant efforts to send the children at school to avoid the inevitable crime path!
