Slowly, ethically hand-crafted

We practise slow, handmade fashion. This is the essence of everything at Daughters of India. We release one product at a time when it is complete. This ensures the artisans are free to manage their own hours without production deadlines, providing flexibility to enjoy life at a slower pace.

We support the art of hand block printing and sustainably handmade garments that utilise tradition and ritual through ancient practice. Our aim is to bridge the gap between artisan and consumer, our connection with one another, and the Earth.
