Blinded By Color project was born as a textile research project in 2018 before the label was created, fomenting global ancestral crafts through our Cocoon Caftan inspired by our shared inherited mediterranean heritage and intercultural exchanges, as the ambassadors and blank canvas for collaborative creations as well as our own material explorations. The Covid pandemic caught us in Jaipur, India, putting a two years pause on our field travels, hitting us hard at all fronts with unknown outcomes. The label was officially created in 2020, enabling us to finally launched in the middle of the unknown, with a small budget but with big energy and with the spirit to push forward through all the challenges. We are proudly independently owned, wishing to keep evolving naturally, without the pressures of global markets or systems, but with the aim to learning and unlearning throughout the journey.
Since then, the collection have quietly grown, slowly adding timeless and minimal architectural shapes that can be worn by any gender or age group. We believe fashion etiquette is a social construct and a nonsense, everyone should be able to express themselves freely. At BBCP, our goal is to take care of the fit, the style and event are yours to decide. We hope you'll join us.
How we do it
We work in harmony with nature and handmade ancestral process with its perfectly imperfect beauty as a sign of authenticity. Upholding natural dyes and heritage crafts which are essential to re-enforcing the community’s history and culture, and contributing to the creation of our common sustainable livelihoods. Created in Barcelona or co-created with master artisans in India.
Our materials are sourced locally, 100% Recycled cotton (GRS) from pre & post consumer waste. 100% Organic cotton (GOTS), or from our own upcycled garments or textile waste, collecting every inch of scraps for future "one of the kind" pieces.
BBCP requires layers of collective efforts - makers, designers, printers, artists, NGOs- everybody involved in the cycle is interdependent on each other and the ecosystem.
We learn, share and aim to work in a reciprocated, fair and transparent way- every step of the creative process including cost is openly discussed. Meet our partners, the teams and collaborators.
Water Recovery, Stewardship and Resiliency.
With local aquifers going down few hundred feed in the past decades. The rainwater harvesting, recycling and groundwater recharge method was identified, first constructing recharge wells, so the water from washing units can be reused with an approximate savings of 7.5M L of water x year. The calculation is based on an average annual rainfall 520 mm and a total catchment area (roof area) is 20,000 sq ft.Decided in consensus by our studio partners, including Wabisabi & Bindaas unlimited, the water conservation initiative started as a main priority during the Covid pandemic in 2021, in the village of Kaladera, Jaipur, now completed.
