Bundu Textiles was inspired by the founder’s grandfather’s lifelong mission to help sustain the handloom industry in India. The brand is a continuation of his dream, and aims to help communities create timeless handcrafted pieces from quality handcrafted fabrics.
Bundu Textiles considers every maker a part of their family and knows every member by name. Their maker team consists of a Head of Quality Control and Communications, master cutter, seamstresses, and logistics team. The team uniquely hand-tailors every piece with time and care.
Bundu Textiles source their fabrics from all over India, for example, in Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, and Madhya Pradesh. Due to the pandemic, the team has not been able to visit the weavers personally. However, the team of weavers and seamstresses continue to work safely from their homes.
Bundu Textiles hand pack each order into cotton bags, which are a women’s initiative stitch. Then, the kaftans go into a cardboard box. The brand makes sure that everything is simple, reusable, and recyclable.
Bundu Textiles only use 100% cotton for all their items. The team then uses all of the scraps and turn them into accessories. Right now, they turn scraps into masks, which they either sell or distribute to local community workers. Otherwise, they make them into pyjama sets, or sell imperfect pieces at a discounted price. These all ensure minimum wastage.
Bundu Textile’s goal is to to help and support people on the ground level in India. That is why they have a small team and work very closely with all the makers. They aim to create consistent employment while supporting the treasured artisans and their work. Their current priority is to support weavers by buying their fabrics, and turning them into new designs.
