Amarkosa is one of the leading sustainable clothing brands, based in Bangalore, and delivering all over India. We focus on environment-friendly clothing and accessories, with high ecological integrity. The word AMAR KOSA is derived from the ancient language of Sanskrit, which means ‘eternal collection’. As the meaning suggests, we work on timeless designs and slow fashion that do not grow out of style. The idea of AMAR KOSA was conceived in 2016 as a small project, which then bloomed into a full-blown label in 2019.
Like the root of our name, our designs have silhouettes of age-old textile traditions that are combined with modern-day fashion senses, crafting collections that are trendy yet comfortable. At AMAR KOSA, each piece is hand-finished by the artisans, giving it an essence of eternity. This alone makes each piece a treasured one; making you the heir to India’s diverse craft culture. Within the designs of each ensemble, you can discover the traditions and stories of our rich heritage. Brand AMAR KOSA believes in sustainable clothing which is truly handmade and handcrafted with detailing. All the AMAR KOSA ensembles are made within our country, with an intention to be a part of and contribute to the “Made In India” movement initiated by the government of India.
Vastly indulging in ethically sourced Natural Handloom fabrics like cotton, linen, hemp, flax, silks, and even organic cotton; infused with Hand block printing, Shibori, or Tie & Dye, we endeavor to bring to you the best of slow fashion that is timeless and fashionable yet wearable, and affordable together. All these fabrics come directly from the weavers from various parts of the country. Hence by owning an AMAR KOSA product, you are supporting the weaver or artisan working hard somewhere in rural India, which adds to the unique spirit of its own. We at AMAR KOSA believe that a small change today will make a big difference tomorrow!
What makes AMAR KOSA a sustainable clothing brand? First of all, our resources are sustainable- right from our ethically sourced raw materials to our handmade fabrics. The leftover fabrics from the dresses are upcycled for making bags and smaller accessories hence creating less waste that goes into landfills. We are extremely conscious and aware of the environment and hence try to recycle all our waste to its maximum utilization.
Our staff is well paid and looked after by all means. Back in 2016, we started as a small project with one tailor, Kitabul, and his wife Mehnaaz. As we expanded and grew in size and number, we provided jobs to their other relatives and friends. Today we can proudly say that we generate livelihood to their entire community. With time, Kitabul and Mehnaaz have 2 kids and we look forward to taking responsibility of these 2 children and empower them to become educated citizens of the future.
