In 2019, we leased acres of depleted land in Erode, India and began the process of planting seeds and healing the soil. Working directly with the farmers and artisans at Oshadi Collective, we have replenished the once arid land through ancient practices of regeneration to produce a bounty of beautiful, healthy cotton crops.
The result of this immense transformation and those seeds is our first Farm-to-Closet collection — a capsule of pieces that have grown from the earth, and were created in service to her.
Over the past two years, the Christy Dawn x Oshadi Farm has:
Increased biodiversity in the soil, meaning organisms, insects and animals have returned to what was once chemically-treated, barren land.
Revived indigenous wisdom of regenerative agriculture and conserved practices of traditional artisans
Farmers have gained financial independence. Everyone from Farm-to-Closet was paid a living wage.
Yielded beautiful, healthy, regenerative cotton for Christy Dawn’s Farm-to-Closet Collection.
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.
Directly addressed climate change, successfully drawing down more than 66 tons of carbon from the atmosphere.
