Kapas is a sustainable business collaborative striving to protect and promote the fragile cotton communities of Tamil Nadu. Failed crops, increased competition, and unfair business practices have driven thousands of cotton farmers and weavers to despair; over 2 lahk cotton farmers have committed suicide in the past decade.As a member of the fashion community, Upasana Design Studio could not silently witness such destruction. Kapas leverages partnerships with several local organizations to: choose only organic and indigenous crops nurtured by all-natural fertilizers; employ a fair business model that improves the livelihoods farmers and weavers; and use natural dyes to create top-quality basics with a higher level of consciousness. We are working with Covenant Centre of Development (CCD), Gandhigram, Colours of Nature, and Bestseller Foundation, among others.
