About the owner

It was fate when we met Shishir whilst searching for partners for our Sustainable Childrenswear range. His passion for sustainability matched ours (which has been rare to come by!), and we instantly knew Shishir would embrace our long-term sustainability vision. For the last 25 years Shishir has been at the forefront of sustainable manufacturing in India. He is continuously innovating ways to improve the sustainability of the garments he works with and so the partnership has been an inspiring experience for our team. He understands the power of sustainable business and this can be seen everywhere from the positive mood on the factory floor through to his support of reforestation and environmental causes, and in his dedication to feeding and educating the underprivileged children of Tiruppur.

Their Skills & Craftsmanship

Shishir has worked specifically on our Spell and the Little Gypsies collections. He specialises in sustainable fibres including Organic Cotton, LENZING™ Modal fibres, Recycled Polyester and Bamboo.

Our partnership

We’ve made some ambitious targets related to sourcing sustainable fibres and we knew partnering with Shishir would help us achieve these. In the Childrenswear range, we were committed to using the most natural and sustainable fibres available, so we focused on Organic Cotton and a modal fabric made from LENZING™ Modal fibres.

With Shishir’s garments being certified to the GOTS standard we had immediate assurance that every single cotton fibre used in these garments was certified organic. Additionally, GOTS has a strict set of protocols that focus on the environmental and social impacts related to farming and manufacturing.
