Poor economical, sociological and psychological state of marginalised women in our society.
Excessive use of harmful and hazardous synthetic/chemical dyes in the textile industry causing harm to humans as well as environment.
Lack of awareness about organic cotton and organic farming communities of Vidarbha, Maharashtra specially known to be the worst affected area in India from farmer suicides in the last 10 Years.
fabriKolor is inspired by Art, Empowerment and Environment to create a self sustained socio-cultural movement.
Our work focuses on creating awareness about naturally dyed organic clothing produced by marginalised farmers, workers and women of our society through Artistic Expression.
We are addressing the needs of multiple marginalized communities and environment through an organized program to make a positive social impact.
To improve the Economical, Sociological and Psychological state of Marginalised Women in our society.
To create awareness about eco-friendly natural dyes and organic clothing in India.
We find marginalised women in our neighborhoods to make them self sufficient by providing them free learning and earning opportunities.
We use different herbs and plant material to extract natural textile dye.
We use Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified 100% Organic Cotton fabric made by organic farming communities in the state of Maharashtra, India.
We are advancing the voices and participation of marginalised women in our society through our work.
We are strengthening the foundation of a sustainable Eco-system
These women learn different vocational and social skills to create beautifully handcrafted organic clothing garments and achieve better standard of living in society and become financially independent.
We encourage the society to move towards sustainable living by eradicating elements like exploitation, marginalisation and consumerism from the society.
Our work provides fair and equal income earning opportunities to marginalized women of our society.
This initiative will also revitalize rural organic cotton farming communities and help them attain better standards of living ensuring healthy and sustainable farming future for farmers and their families by providing them economic stability.
We are working towards creating a sustainable future for our planet.
We use eco-safe medicinal natural dyes which are extracted from natural sources to dye organically grown cotton fabric. Use of natural dyes has reduced the carbon foot print to minimum.
Organic cotton farming replenishes and maintains soil fertility and uses far less water as compared to conventional cotton, thereby creating biodiversity and reducing the hazardous effects on humans and environment.
We began our journey with 1 woman. Today we are a team of more than 13 trained and skilled women from our neighborhood with more women getting involved every week.
Organic cotton farmers under the Ecofarms project in Vidharbha, Maharashtra have also benefited from this initiative.
Social challenges like marginalisation, gender inequality, exploitation and environment degradation still exists. As a society, we have always turned a blind-eye towards these issues because we may not know how these affect us. Sometimes these challenges gives way to new opportunities for changemakers to come forward and create an impact.
