When we started Christy Dawn, we just wanted to make beauty. We used deadstock because it was better for the Earth (and the most affordable).
As we grew, we realized:
Sustainability Is Not Enough.
We can’t just sustain.
So we asked ourselves:
How can we honor Mother Earth as we’ve promised to do?
How can we work together?
In a giant leap of faith, Christy Dawn leased 24 acres of depleted land in Erode, India. Working directly with the farmers and artisans at Oshadi Collective, we’ve been working to replenish the soil through ancient practices of regeneration and traditional wisdom.
Over the past two years,
the Christy Dawn x Oshadi Farm has:
Nourished over 24 acres of land where our cotton is farmed, ginned, woven, vegetable-dyed, and block-printed using centuries-old methods in harmony with Nature.
Increased biodiversity in the soil, meaning organisms, insects and animals have returned to what was once chemically-treated, barren land.
Implemented indigenous practices of regenerative agriculture and traditional artistry.
Yielded beautiful, healthy, regenerative cotton for Christy Dawn’s Farm-to-Closet Collection.
The Truth Is:
We Can Stop Global Warming.
When you shop Farm-to-Closet, you are actively joining the Regenerative Revolution. Each purchase helps replenish even more soil, sequester even more carbon. Plus, you’re wearing a garment with reciprocity stitched into every seam. If you pay attention, you can feel it.
