Zenana Women is about sustainable textiles, a social enterprise partnership between workers in India and designers everywhere. We form the link between small, emerging and limited edition labels and the workshop in India that manufactures for them. Designers of both fashion and homewares partner with us to develop new lines made with pride in their fairness to both the workers who produce them and the environment that sustains us all. From the experienced designer starting her own label, to those coming to fashion or homewares from other careers, from retailers creating labels for their stores to the time-poor young mum passionate about the environment and wanting to create a sustainable product on a shoestring budget, our partners are diverse in their experience and ambitions. New, inexperienced or start-up designers are those we want to encourage, to bring their vision of socially and environmentally sustainable textiles to reality.
We work beside women from the slums of a small city in India towards reducing their burden of poverty through stable employment and training in a secure working environment. We’re proud to be endorsed as a Fair Trader of Australia.
Our own fashion label, Zenana, features the lovely hand-done embroidery of our region on beautiful hand-woven cotton fabrics.
