Material

All different materials used for the production of the MEHROTRA products are currently sourced from India. We use only natural materials with certifications that ensure the security of a conscious effort. All materials are consciously chosen, from main fabric to thread.

Silk

Silk is a natural material and its properties makes it one of the most durable natural fibres. Silk is hypoallergenic in its natural condition due to its natural protein structure, and adapts to body temperature making it a transeasonal material which is wearable both in summer and in winter.

Wool

We have decided to use wool since it is one of the most naturally technical materials. The wool fabric we use is mixed with silk to make it non-itchy and gives it a smooth texture.

Since we aim to create products which you can wear regardless of the season, wool is a natural material which allows you to do so. Wool keeps you warm and at the same time it breathes.

Wool is a long-lasting fabric, allowing you to keep your wool scarf for a long time if proper care is taken. Due to its antibacterial properties this material does not require frequent washing, rather air the scarf frequently to keep it fresh.

Upcycled silk saris

Silk saris are sourced for some of our products to create uniqueness and source material in a sustainable way.

The silk saris are washed and cleaned before they go into production and if any parts of the fabric is damaged this part is removed.

BCI Cotton

The cotton we use is sourced in accordance with BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) and goes under the name of Better Cotton.

Better Cotton initiative aims to reduce the environmental impact of cotton production and improve livelihoods and economic development in cotton producing areas

By sourcing cotton in accordance with the BCI standards MEHROTRA aims to be a part of BCI’s efforts to generate market demand for Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity.

Watergrass

Watergrass is a natural fiber which age beautifully with time. As a natural fiber it dries with time and cracks may appear.

It is a fragile material and should be handled with love and care.
