As always, the garments in this collection are named after our feminist heroes.
Oscar-nominated for her roles in The Help, Doubt and Fences, Viola Davis fights for black peoples' rights in the film industry. Daughter of a Civil Rights activist, it’s no wonder Davis creates a stir when she advocates for intersectionality in Hollywood and on television. From her beginnings on Broadway, she’s since been named one of Time Magazine’s most influential people of 2012.
The Viola is made by the incredible women of Srishti Handlooms from hand-spun and hand-woven eri-silk and khadi-cotton. This fabric is produced by women in conflict-affected Assam, India following strict principles of environmental sustainability and social responsibility. The Viola is washed, dyed and stitched in Kolkata by our fairtrade partners at Sasha.
