Good ethics is at the heart of what I do at OMishka. The items I stock are either ethically handmade, ethically sourced, vintage or recycled. My products are not mass produced and I only work with small, family run businesses that supply me with either their own unique collections or my own designs that are made especially for me. Either way they are limited edition and beautifully handcrafted! I feel it is important to support the artisans directly, making sure they receive the fair wages they deserve.
Fast fashion is damaging our planet and I feel it is important to shop sustainably, I love sourcing vintage textiles and recycled materials. All OMishka clothing is made from eco-friendly and sustainable hemp, bamboo and organic cotton. All of the brass jewellery is made from recycled brass that has been used time and time again.
I firmly believe that sustainable, recycling and upcycling are the way forward to a better and cleaner planet and with each step that OMishka takes I try to lessen my carbon footprint. My business cards and bags are printed on compostable, recycled card and paper. All OMishka orders are packaged in reusable, recycled sari material gift pouches or branded organic cotton tote bags. The mailing bags are reusable and I am happy to say that OMishka is zero plastic!.
Thank you for supporting my small business, we can all make a difference however small.
