Ethical Focus & Policy

Mehera Shaw focuses on both social and environmental sustainability. They are members of the Fair Trade Federation in the US and adhere to all fair trade labour standards throughout the manufacture of their garments and textile prints.

The production process is sustainably driven. Mehera Shaw uses solely natural fibres, 90% of which are specialist sustainable fabrics, including GOTS certified organic Indian cotton, hand loom cotton, hand loom linen and peace silk.

All printing is done using the block print process, carried out in-house using low impact, AZO free dyes. The focus is on organic, energy efficient fabrics and supporting rural artisans in India.

Mehera Shaw also supports a women’s development project through their Foundation, focusing on skills training in sewing handmade, upcycled fashion accessories.
