Handwoven fabric production in NW Bangladesh helps address the community-wrecking, family-damaging effects of rural-urban migration. When men and women have to leave their families en masse to find work in the cities, the resulting problems are many and complex. A commitment to using the hand made whenever and wherever possible ensures a growing stabilisation of families, near zero carbon-emissions into the environment and more holistic alternatives for a sustainable lifestyle.

DESIGN OPTIONS: Simple plain weave cotton is handwoven on traditional 2 shaft looms, where the options for colour, stripe/check patterns and texture are endless! The excitement also happens after the fabric is woven as it takes both natural and azo-free dyes beautifully. Tie-dye and other resist techniques yield interesting results and can be applied to either the yardage or the finished scarves, drapes, etc. for a flowing finish.

Together Motif’s founder Jackie Corlett – an experienced textile designer, and professional artisans in Bangladesh, are looking forward to creating the truly sustainable fabrics you’re searching for. Let’s be in touch!

As we are committed to the Slow Fashion Movement, some fabrics are kept in stock and others are handwoven to order.  All however, are transported by sea to leave a significantly smaller carbon footprint than sending by air, and to keep the cost down. When needed, an air shipment can be arranged and we encourage you then to consider a carbon offset donation to your preferred organisation.
