All About Deeps...
Deeps are a wonderful ethical producer who make our babygrows, tops & bottoms all from a super soft organic knitted cotton. We hugely value their expertise and love visiting Soumodip and his family who always make us feel incredibly welcome in India.
This Fashion Revolution week, some of our Little Green Radicals kids asked the owner of Deeps, Soumodip, a few questions to find out 'Who Made My Clothes'. Here's what he said..
equality & empowerment
wonderful zero waste projects
expert hand screen-printers
What we love about Deeps
We've been collaborating for over 8 years and they've grown to become a very important part of our team.
They have always put a huge emphasis on the environment and run a zero textile wastage policy to reduce their environmental impact. Scraps of fabric are reused and made into new products such as face coverings, or recycled.
They make amazing interlock fabric which we use for babygrows, t-shirts and joggers. It’s not your average t-shirt fabric as it's beautifully soft and thick, and very long lasting. Deeps are also fantastic screen-printers. The skilled craftsmen they use print each colour onto our organic fabrics by hand. No easy task with some of our multi-colour designs!
What makes Deeps special?
Deeps collaborate with Swadhina, a wonderful organisation that works to improve the lives of women in the remotest corners of rural India for the past 25 years. Providing women with steady pay helps them to become independent, empowered and self-reliant. Deeps provides specialist training for its female employees as well as healthcare to give more opportunities for a better life and better future.
