22 July 2017: For a view into the truly eco-friendly, where better spend the day than at The Colours of Nature? At least that is exactly what the participants of Upasana’s Desi Cotton Workshop did. On the second day of the workshop, Sunday June 25th (2017), Uma Hamaivati Prajapati, the Founder of Upasana, brought them all along to the site of TCoN. They did not have to go far.
Upasana Integral Design Studio has as its mission to create conscious sustainable fashion. Says Uma, “This business is my yoga”. Also in that, she and Jesus, the Founder of The Colours of Nature, are not far apart.
The Desi Cotton Workshop was the launch event of Upasana’s Conscious Fashion Hub project. Organised as a free event, the workshop aimed at empowering experts in the fields of cotton and fashion. India being one of the world’s largest producers of cotton, second only to China, Upasana deems it to be of integral importance to promote sustainable cotton production practices.
