Similar to the ‘farm-to-table’ slow food movement, we use a ‘field-to-fabric’ philosophy.
Our materials are ethically sourced from fiber to finished fabric, concentrating exclusively on natural fibers and dyes from native plants and minerals. Our collections are sustainably produced in family-owned workshops and support the preservation of a rich history of traditional handcrafts in small Indian village communities.
Our name, Umber & Ochre, is derived from the earthy pigments found in the natural world that make up our products.
The traditional processes that we use are hundreds of years old resulting in a quality of garment that is crafted entirely by hand of materials that embody unique characteristics that are made to stand the test of time.
