About the Brand
Avani is a community based organization that has been working in the Kumaon region of the Central Himalayas in India for the past 24 years. Avani’s activities are organized through six decentralized community centres headed by local women and men trained at Avani. The business of organic textiles is now being managed by the artisan cooperative The Kumaon Earthcraft Self Reliant Cooperative, comprised largely of women. Earthcraft produces and markets hand spun, hand woven and naturally dyed wool, silk and linen textiles. Our work has also revived the traditional skill of natural dyeing in the area.
