The Emerging Collection has developed from our love of unique & authentic textiles. I have come across an emerging social enterprise in India, facilitated by an Australian woman, employing local women to produce beautiful, handmade textiles.
Offering equal pay & employment opportunities, many of these mostly rural women are earning a wage for the first time in their lives, providing them with new pathways towards education, financial independence & friendship.
At ella & sunday we feel privileged to showcase these textiles in the Emerging Collection for High Summer 2017-18. The fabrics we have chosen are hand loomed; cotton & cotton/silk. The addition of colour is created by hand block printing & hand painting. Two of our favourite pieces include authentic hand stitching detail. We hope you can see & feel the story behind the fabrics when you wear these garments.
