Shorshe clothing is an all sustainable label. We follow eco-friendly practices and create hand-made garments from hand-woven fabric. We work with 30-40 weavers from rural india, mainly bengal & madhya pradesh and create light, airy, breathable garments which are further handcrafted at our workshop in delhi. All our garments have artisanal elements, be it hand block printing or hand woven motifs or hand embroidered detailing. Our endeavour is to create indian craft based clothing in western silhouttes so that they would appeal to not just sophisticated, well-travelled pan-indian but a global audience as well.
As a label Shorshe’s brand philosophy is to create comfortable clothing using handwoven textiles. We are inspired by the design philosophy of our faves like Yohji Yamamoto or Comme de Garçon & love their eponymous loose fits. We love easy fit clothing from Korea & Japan and also our grandmother’s old sari !
The most important thing is that all of Shorshe’s garments have the Blueprint of Bengal...Whether it’s the fine Muslin dhoti or the usage of dhakai borders or the fine kantha embroidery on the garments ... Also all our garments have a comfort story ; whether it’s soft handmade fabrics or anti fit cuts like drop waists, kimono sleeves or special loose pockets, every detail that goes into the making of a Shorshe garment makes it special Shorshe is a fully sustainable label... we support more than 30 weavers in the Nadia district, we work hand in hand with weaving clusters supporting the revival of traditional dhakai, & Jamdani weaves & provide employment to the weavers and their support groups; last year we ordered more than 10000mts of handwoven fabric. We promote eco-fashion, so our silhouettes are created with the idea of “long lasting” garments and “repeat wears” We promote zero waste policy & upcycle our waste fabric into handmade cloth jewelry & footwear as well and use it for patchwork & other mending techniques in our garments, so as not to waste precious hand-woven fabric.
