This piece is dedicated to - Black Mamba - an all-women anti-poaching unit in South Africa. Unarmed, and wielding nothing but sheer baddassery, these 26 women have yet to lose an animal under their watch. As Black Mamba Leitah said:
“I am strong, I am a woman and I bite like a mamba.”
Our silk is made from hand-spun and hand-woven eri-silk and khadi-cotton and is produced by women in conflict-affected Assam, India following strict principles of environmental sustainability and social responsibility.
Our garments are dyed and constructed by Sasha and the Weavers Studio in Kolkata, India. Sasha are a World Fair Trade Organisational guaranteed, and artisan centred organisation that supports rural women and marginalised producers in rural West Bengal.
