Zenana Women is about sustainable fashion, a social enterprise partnership between Australia and India.
Our goal is to work beside women from the slums of a small city in India towards reducing their burden of poverty through stable employment. We aspire to the standards of fair trade, including fairly paid work, good working conditions, opportunities for education and training, and care for the environment.
Our product is beautifully handmade clothing, increasingly made from organic Indian cotton and other sustainable fabrics. We have our own label, Zenana, that features the lovely hand-done embroidery of our region, and recently we have started working with emerging designers of sustainable fashion to develop their own independent labels.
