What we do

We work in harmony with nature and handmade ancestral process with its perfectly imperfect beauty as a sign of authenticity, celebrating universal love through our bold & architectural genderless collections.

Upholding natural dyes and heritage crafts which are essential to re-enforcing the artisan community’s history and culture, and contributing to the creation of sustainable livelihoods.

Created in own studio 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), our own upcycled garments, as well as 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 work in a fair and transparent way-  every step of the creative process including cost is openly discussed and implemented together.  Meet our partners, the teams and collaborators.

 

Water Recycling, Replenishment & Stewardship

According to United Nations by 2030, between 24 million and 700 million people in arid and semi-arid places could be displaced by intense water scarcity. About 100 million people across India are already on the front lines of a nationwide water crisis.

We believe water stewardship is essential to reduce community exposure to risk and improve climate change resilience and local adaptation. 
We estimated an approximate average of 30 to 60 L of water to print one Cocoon Caftan, depending of the print, color and process. One printer family or one cloth washing unit can use between 10,000 - 15,000 L of water per day, most of the water discharged from washing units being wasted. 

With local aquifers going down few hundred feed in the past decades. The rainwater harvesting, recycling and groundwater recharge method was identified by first constructing recharge wells, so the water 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.

We are dependent on each other and our ecosystems.

Join the circular cycle

We hope that you will mend it if it gets torn and find creative solutions for dealing with food stains such as over-dyeing in darker colors or mended when torn. But if your BBCP is truly at the end of its life you can compost it in the backyard and watch as it returns to the soil.  It took Zahra  Shihabuddin 4 month to fully biodegrade inside of her home plant pots.  Learn how to care for your naturally dyed pieces – and keep them for longer. here.
