OUR COMMITMENT TO BE SUSTAINABLE

TAIC Sustainability Circle

Our commitment to be sustainable:

We work with traditional knowledge of natural materials and self-sustaining communities of interdependent craftspeople to be socially, environmentally and economically sustainable.

Our product lines emerge from the following commitments:

ORGANIC

We work with organic cotton farmer cooperative to source an indigenous fiber that is economical for the farmer and better for the local ecosystem. 

HAND LOOM

We design handmade home goods and accessories with hand loom weavers, who weave textiles without the use of electricity, relying on their hands, vision and patience.

ABOVE MARKET RATE

We pay our artisan partners an above market rate. In fact, our pricing is based on the rate determined by artisan partners. When you buy directly from us, 50% goes directly to the artisan who made your product.

GEOGRAPHICAL INDICATION

We expose you to crafts found uniquely in specific regions of the world owing to the local raw materials and traditional techniques. Geographical indications are the crown jewel of these regions' continuing heritage crafts.

PLANT DYES

We use natural dyes to retain the ethereal purity of organic cotton and continue its journey of positive impact on its local ecosystem.

TRADITIONAL

We collaborate with nomadic women to help sustain their culture by deploying their traditional methods to sew and embellish textiles

MINIMALLY PACKAGED

Craft paper, Indian postal services postcard, reusable eco market bags, hemp string...oui, c'est tout!

TRACEABLE

The Series No of every product lets you trace back its origin - the artisan, craft, materials, region, and how to care for it
