Our mission is to increase the prosperity of human and natural environments in artisan communities through holistic design approaches and collaborative participation, transforming the way we create and consume, where waste, water and energy is reduced to a minimum and groundwater resources are replenished.

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

We are committed to reverse the effects of pollution and water scarcity in rural communities on which traditional livelihoods depend. 

Through The BBCP Rainwater Foundation initiative you can become a part of the journey. We collaborate with Manthan Kotri, a local grassroots non-profit organization to ensure community control, availability and management of water resources. learn more

$20 of each Caftan sold on our website goes towards funding rainwater harvesting systems in rural communities in India

How are the Caftans made?

Our caftans are sourced locally from 100% recycled cotton fabric, certified by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS). These eco-friendly textiles are created and hand printed by artisans with 100% natural dyes before being transported to the manufacturing facilities.

By using recycled cotton, we reduce the demand for newly-grown fiber and reduce our water and energy consumption. Learn about waste as a new source.

All of our designs are created under the sun in small batches from January to May and re-produced by demand. We collect our fabric scraps for a future handmade zero-waste goods collection. Each caftan creates as little as 3% waste per piece
