“In our current reality, climate change, fueled by fashion waste and other human-made pollution, intertwines with our health. The choices we make in our lifestyle can be the key to avoiding these disruptions.
Increased respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, injuries, and premature deaths related to extreme weather events, shifts in the prevalence and distribution of food- and water-borne illnesses, and other infectious diseases are among the health threats we face. However, we can mitigate these challenges by making conscious choices, starting with opting for environmentally friendly clothing.
Choosing garments that prioritize the environment not only contributes to averting climate change but also safeguards our health. The connection between the two is undeniable, and a conscious lifestyle can be a powerful tool in addressing these interconnected issues.
Rest assured, our products meet the highest standards of quality. Certified by esteemed organizations such as the Textiles Committee, Weavers Service Centre, India Handloom Brand, and the Ministry of Textiles in the Government of Odisha, India, our clothing undergoes thorough assessments. These certifications provide detailed information about the physical, structural, and performance properties of our fabrics.
It’s not just about fashion; it’s a commitment to a sustainable and healthy future. Together, through conscious choices and certified quality, we can regenerate not just our clothing but also our environment and well-being.”
“Exquisitely handcrafted to sartorial perfection, our garments are born from the marriage of premium-quality upcycled crepe bandages and the finest cotton fabric woven by hand in tie-dye ikat. This fusion guarantees a garment that not only epitomizes luxury but also offers a soft and soothing touch against your skin.
Adding to its allure is the artistry of storytelling through calligraphy, a captivating expression that represents the essence of ‘human languages.’ Our calligraphy work goes beyond mere aesthetics; it carries the core objective of preserving India’s six cultural languages and the rich heritage of art and culture. Through wearable sustainable fashion, we aim not only to make a style statement but also to enhance avenues for the sustainable livelihoods of traditional hand weavers and hand painters.
At Pencil For Change, we are dedicated to constantly reimagining ways to protect, preserve, and promote the invaluable tie-dye ikat art, culture, and heritage. Our commitment to regeneration extends beyond just fashion; it’s a holistic approach to nurturing and sustaining the skills of our artisans.
Join us in this journey of regeneration, where every garment tells a story, not just through its aesthetics but through the preservation of India’s cultural tapestry. Pencil For Change is your gateway to sustainable fashion, cultural preservation, and the empowerment of traditional artisans.”
“As custodians of a priceless heritage, we are committed to not only protecting but also promoting it, ensuring its relevance for the younger generation. Our mission is to bridge the gap between tradition and the modern world, fostering an appreciation and connection with our rich heritage and textile art among the youth.
At Pencil For Change, we embark on a journey of reimagining our 1000-year-old culture and tradition. We recognize the urgency of preserving dying art and craft practices, understanding that their disappearance could lead to a significant cultural loss for our country.
Our dedication goes beyond mere preservation; it’s about keeping India’s diverse and rich history, culture, and the unique identity of each place and community alive through mesmerizing handworks. We believe in the power of regeneration — breathing new life into traditional practices, making them relevant, and ensuring they thrive for generations to come.
Join us in this pursuit to regenrate our cultural tapestry. Let’s celebrate and sustain the beauty of our heritage, one handcrafted piece at a time, and together, preserve the legacy for the vibrant and diverse India we cherish.”
