We work closely with the Herbal Fab factory in Ahmedabad to supply Ismail with our fabrics. It is run by Kunal and he sources a lot of our GOTS certified organic corduroy and printed cotton for our limited editions. We are so happy for his success and now alongside his business partner and nephew Aniket, he has opened a CMT factory. Having fewer factories is easier for us to maintain our high ethical standards as we are able to visit them regularly.

As much as possible we try to work with smaller family owned businesses that share our passion for responsible manufacturing of quality products. Herbal Fab is all of that! 
Owned and ran by Kunal with his father and two brothers, Herbal Fab are inspirational to work with.
