KAPAS - HARVEST Ochre
Harvest is a symbol of abundance, our connection to the soil. It all started with a sketch. We were mapping our regenerative cotton farm with the Ibus when I noticed how they use these dots to illustrate the cotton plants. They decided to Batik it into a fabric, a constellation of blooming flowers seen from the sky.
GROWN TO HEAL THE PLANET
Each KAPAS piece was grown in our regenerative farm. For 2 years now, we've been working with indigenous women farmers to grow cotton and natural dyes with regenerative methods. From sourcing non-GMO seeds to completely eliminating chemical fertilizer and pesticides to heal the soil.
ETHICALLY HANDCRAFTED BY MOTHERS
After the harvest, the Ibus come together to de-seed and spin each flower into threads before being woven by hand on a backstrap loom. Each takes 6 months to craft, from farm to fabric. Each color dyed with plants grown in the farm to support biodiversity, so that when you wear it, you become part of the healing journey.
