The Environmental Benefits of Handloom Fabrics
Thursday, March 8
1pm EST / 10am PST / 6pm GMT
The age-old tradition of handloom fabrics has supported millions of livelihoods for thousands of years. Yet not only does using handwoven, or khadi, materials in your collection save lives - it also reduces the environmental footprint of your designs.
In this session of The Academy, founder of Indigo Handloom Smita Paul will share more about the eco-friendly attributes of India's handwoven textiles, and the range of designs available in handloom.
All registered attendees will receive a link to access the webinar.
