Grow Your Textile Business with Sustainably Sourced Fabrics

First slide

Sustainability has become a commonly used jargon in the textile industry, and rightly so. It is crucial to be environmentally conscious and take steps to lessen our carbon footprint to preserve the earth for future generations. Creating fashion that is sustainable and environment-friendly is becoming the new norm to stay relevant and succeed in the textile industry.

The adoption of numerous technologically developed sustainable materials has made it possible to recycle used textiles and reduce total water waste.

Demand for products made from sustainable fabrics has grown recently, which has prompted businesses to source sustainable materials. Both fast-fashion and luxury companies have adopted eco-friendly business strategies that are good for the environment and the economy.

Procuring sustainable and authentic raw materials at reasonable prices was a challenge initially for businesses but B2B marketplaces like ReshaMandi assist vendors and buyers in responsible sourcing by providing them with transparency and end-to-end traceability of the products. Through the integration of its natural fibre supply chain, ReshaMandi can empower all of its stakeholders—including farmers, reelers, weavers, and fashion sellers —and build a sustainable ecosystem that enables sustainable fashion.

Committed to creating sustainable product lines and facilitating the procurement of sustainable fabrics, ReshaMandi’s in-house R&D team has developed a range of fabrics and prints that are environment-friendly and skin-friendly. Let’s have a look at the different types of fabrics and prints.

ReshaMandi Exclusive Fabrics

Paying homage to Bemberg's country of origin, Japan, where the fibre is solely made, the Kyoto collection features fabrics created from Bemberg & Bemberg blends. Replicating classic textiles like Organza, Habutai, and silk cotton, a variety of fabrics have been designed with blends of Bemberg and sustainable fibres like Banana, Bamboo, Hemp, Eri, Linen, Tencel & Modal fibres to create airy, light, breathable fabrics

Ramanagara collection

Ramanagara-collection

The inspiration behind the collection’s name is India's silk capital, Ramanagara. The Ramanagara collection offers sustainable luxury with its 100% silk and silk blend fabrics. Each fabric in the collection blends silk with organic fibres such as bamboo, banana, Hemp, spun silk, and regenerated cellulosic material to create 100% natural, easy-to-dye, extremely comfortable, and biodegradable fabrics.

Bombay collection

Bombay-collection

The collection's name is inspired by and pays tribute to Kalyan in Mumbai, which houses the oldest viscose manufacturing plant in India. The Bombay collection offers a range of 100% viscose and viscose blend fabrics that are affordable, luxurious and sustainable. Each fabric in the collection is a combination of viscose with sustainable fibres such as eri, flax, bamboo, and banana.

ReshaMandi’s future plans include creating jute fabrics and linen fabric blends to offer more sustainable options. These sustainable fabrics are created by curating with ReshaMandi’s stakeholders of the natural fibre supply chain. For instance, fibre manufacturers map the fibre developments, then the spinners source differentiated blends and yarns, followed by twisters, who blend filament silk, then the weavers develop these blended fabrics, and finally, they send them to the processors for the finished fabrics. ReshaMandi’s integrated supply chain helps in maintaining costs and sustainability.

ReshaMandi Exclusive Prints

The in-house R&D team have created a diverse range of customisable fabric prints including motifs inspired by blue pottery, the Mughal, Berber heritage, Bougainvilleas and many more as digital prints. The advantage and the reason behind creating digital prints are that it has a lower carbon footprint, reduces emissions, does not consume water, reduces wastage; and involves a hassle-free technique.

The key to sustainable fashion is innovation, and ReshaMandi, with its technological innovation, is an ode to sustainability. By connecting all the stakeholders of the natural fibre supply chain, including farmers, reelers, weavers, and retailers, ReshaMandi is building a sustainable value chain that gives back to the textile industry.
