NEW! The Small but Mighty Churidars

10.00

These leggings (called churidars in many parts of India) may be little, but they have fought poverty and pollution around the globe! That’s why we call them small but mighty!

First, plastic trash was collected from the streets by community members in Haiti. That trash was then transformed into beautiful Ground to Good™ fabric in Pittsburgh. The resulting soft jersey fabric was cut into the right sizes and shapes at our home-based Seekna workshop in Huntington, West Virginia. Finally, some of our Artisan Partners in India carefully stitched these churidars together, using just a needle and our favorite Gutermann’s sew all rPET thread from Germany. What a journey! Talk about Born Global! 

Available in Light Heather Gray (left), Rainy Day (middle), and Navy (right).

HOW IT WAS MADE

+ The Small but Mighty Churidars were hand-stitched with sew-all rPET thread by Gutermann. We love this thread!

+ We always sew with pre-washed fabrics. We know this takes away that “like new” shine from the fabrics. But we do it to reduce our artisan’s exposure to chemicals when handling the fabric, and to minimize the possibility of the finished product shrinking when you wash it. 

+ These leggings were hand sewn in the homes of our Artisan Partners in India. Each woman took care to sew them in a clean, hygienic environment and kept the finished pieces stored in air-tight bags to protect them from odors, dust, and other contaminants. 

+ These items have been around the world and back, but we want them to come to you as fresh and clean as a rain-washed morning. That’s why each Artisan Partner-made piece is first hand-washed with gentle soap, rinsed in warm lavender/thyme water, and dried in the sun and wind before we list it in our shop. 

+ The pattern for these churidars was developed by Amy Sharp and Moriah Sharp in 2017, and is the property of Seekna Company LLC.
