Our Ethics & Charity Partners

We are so very passionate about looking after our artisans and all of our staff that is why we are SEDEX certified (a certification that is consistently monitoring our company for ethical trading). You can read more about our ethics here.
what charities do you work with?
At the heart of Daughters of India, we believe supporting women to feel empowered is a key component of a positive future. This is why our goal has been supporting Indian women in the workplace and giving as much as possible to their local communities. With the help of your contributions, every Daughters of India purchase is not only preserving traditional craftsmanship, they are also donating directly to women empowerment initiatives in India through our charity partnerships. We have pledged an ongoing monthly donation of $10,000 to support Sewing the Seeds & Barakat Bundle reach their goals. You can read more about our Charity Partnerships here.
Do you use organic cotton?
Our cotton is produced conventionally in India. At this stage we do not use organic cotton for our garments. We use dyes which are low tox, AZO free so they do not contain any harmful, toxic or carcinogenic compounds. At present our manufactures use the highest grade cotton attainable, however we are aiming to produce all of our garments with certified organic cotton in the future.
Do you produce ranges?
Being a slow fashion label means we do not produce collections or ranges and our batches are made one at a time. This ensures our artisans can work comfortably at their leisure without pressure, as well as ensuring more care is put into crafting each garment individually.
Do you wholesale?
We are so thrilled that you are considering us for your beautiful business, however, we do not wholesale and sell exclusively online via our online boutique and in store at our DOI boutiques based in Northern NSW, Australia. This means less waste and more control over our eco-footprint. By not wholesaling it also creates a lot less pressure and intensity of workload on our making facility and the team.
Do you have stockists?
We sell our garments exclusively from our Boutiques in Northern NSW Australia, otherwise from our website.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY DAUGHTERS OF INDIA GARMENT?
The cotton fabric is very delicate and requires extra love and care. We recommend gentle hand washing, only when needed and line drying. Please avoid machine washing & drying to protect the delicate fabric of your pieces. You can read more about how to care for your DOI pieces in our Garment Care Guide.
HOW DO I SOFTEN THE FABRIC?
Each of our garments slightly vary in softness, due to the individual dye colour. We recommend gentle cold hand washing with a small amount of organic fabric softener while hand washing and then line drying, once completed your garments should soften. Please avoid machine washing & drying to protect the delicate fabric of your pieces.
