Ethically minded designers & makers create with total peace of mind using our Shunno collection of zero footprint fabrics. Shunno in Bangla means zero: Non dyed, zero toxicity, 100% recycled yarn, zero waste, is handwoven, zero carbon, by fair trade weavers, zero exploitation, in growing craft communities, zero migration for work. Together we respect weavers, build community and stop trashing our planet!
DESIGN OPTIONS: This fabric is skillfully handwoven on a traditional 2 shaft frame loom and so plain weave is the base for every fabric. The excitement starts when you think about different thicknesses of yarn to create texture, numerous colours to create pattern, resist dye techniques before and after weaving, plus the potential of supplementary weft designs – it’s amazing!

As we are committed to the Slow Fashion Movement, fabrics are transported by sea to leave a significantly smaller carbon footprint than sending by air and to keep the fabric cost down. If needed however, an air shipment can be arranged. We encourage you then to consider a carbon offset donation to your preferred organisation.
