Who We Are & What We Do.

 
.
Craft is an important source of livelihoods globally, deeply connected to socio cultural traditions, the land, history and identity of the communities in which they are practice. 
 

Our genderless resort wear collection is launched only once a year in small batches at demand, adding a limited number of silhouettes or prints to build on, giving you options to mix and match and have fun. The style and event is yours to decide. 

Made in 100% recycled cotton (GRS), 100 % Organic cotton (GOTS) or our own repurposed fabrics collecting every inch of damage panels or scraps for future "one of the kind" pieces to minimized textile waste, the collections are hand printed with 100% natural dyes, tannins and low impact mordants in own studio in Barcelona Photo (left) or co-created with artisans in India following Rajasthani heritage process such us woodblock printing and dabu mud resist dyeing before being transported to our local stitching partners.

Slow Fashion is a caring act, an opportunity to reconnect with nature and each other, respecting the art of the handmade process as much as the environment. We are one with nature and with this spirit we have built our foundation. We hope you will feel the same sense of wonder and belonging every time you wear one of our pieces.

“Clean and fresh water is not only essential to food, health and sanitation, but also for the continuation of craftsmanship and traditional livelihoods.” 

Groundwater depletion in India has become one of the most prominent challenges for food and water security only exacerbated by Climate change. 

BBCP Rainwater Foundation 501(c)(3) nonprofit initiative was launched as a collective response to the growing need of freshwater in Rajasthan. India, one of the creative homes of Blinded By Color Project block printed collections.

Water Recycling, and Replenishment

We estimated an approximate of 30 to 60 L of water to print one Cocoon Caftan, depending of the print and color 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. The rainwater harvesting, recycling and  groundwater recharge method was identified by 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  Visit  community based Pilot program & BBCP Water Conservation Initiative to learn more.

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. Do Not Throw Away naturally made clothes thinking they will magically return to earth by themselves. Keep clothing out of landfills.
