We believe that every garment is a choice- and should be a purposeful one.
The way you shop is as important as the why you shop. Is it enough for you to buy a good product that would just serve your needs, or are the intangibles that enhance its value and make it unique as important to you?
An IslaPayal artisanal product will-
- honor traditional handicraft skills that have been passed down from generations, and are part of our world’s collective history
- be handmade, and thus will empower the artisans financially, giving them dignity and respect
- be sustainable, small-batch production, adding to its unique story (as opposed to mass-produced factory items)
- be as much about the individual who makes the product- his family, his community- as about you
- eventually improve the economic fabric of small communities half-way across the world, and be part of a collective good
At IslaPayal we care immensely about these individuals and respect their craft. We believe that these handicrafts should be protected from dying away, when faced with factory-made fast fashion.
If you’re still reading this- we believe you care too!! Welcome to our world of everything artisanal.
