Crafting Fashion with Purpose and Positive Impact
We're devoted to environmental care and zero-waste practices, from detoxifying wastewater in our leather sourcing to our ambitious goal of achieving zero waste by 2025. Every decision we make reflects our dedication to minimising our ecological footprint.
Our unwavering dedication to responsible sourcing defines our ethos. We proudly abstain from exotic leathers, ensuring no harm befalls animals for their skin. Instead, we repurpose discarded skins from animals raised for meat, aligning our practices with a bedrock of ethical values. Our 2-3 annual visits to suppliers' facilities stand as a testament to our commitment to responsible and compassionate practices.
Our bags are more than just fashion statements; they are bespoke items designed to be cherished forever. We consciously limit our production to a select number of pieces globally, symbolising luxury through artistry and craftsmanship rather than mass production. This aligns with our vision for a more sustainable and mindful future.
We exemplify the harmonious coexistence of luxury and sustainability through innovative materials and responsible sourcing. Our efforts contribute to a more sustainable fashion industry, inspiring others to embrace eco-conscious practices.
Our commitment extends to our concept store in London, an embodiment of luxury employing locally sourced, sustainable materials. It stands as a testament to our dedication to creating a modern luxury experience that positively impacts every touchpoint.
In our properties, we work towards a sustainable legacy through innovative and eco-friendly architectural practices. We adopt renewable sources of energy, water-saving techniques, waste management, and local biodiversity preservation. Our employees actively participate in impactful activities, contributing to the betterment of the local community.
Our new atelier/Bangalore office is a Net Zero development, incorporating rainwater harvesting, water recycling, and energy-efficient fixtures. The space, built with a climate-responsive concept and plastic-free materials, achieves a low carbon footprint.
As we expand, our specific goal for new ateliers is to go off-grid and be self-sufficient, fully embracing sustainability wherever we operate.
Preserving traditional craftsmanship techniques is integral to our sustainability efforts, safeguarding cultural heritage. We empower craftsmen through local hiring, exposure, and upskilling initiatives.
We create high-quality, durable handbags designed to last, encouraging responsible consumption. Our attention to detail includes adding 0.3 microns of gold to brass accessories for a long-lasting, shinier look.
We implement efficient cutting techniques to minimise material waste, contributing to a more sustainable production process.
We invest in team leadership training on project and process management, providing access to industry-relevant learning materials and platforms.
At Aranyani, our spirit of innovation is an ongoing journey, shaping the very fabric of our daily lives, our material choices, and our approach to natural resources. A testament to this commitment is our upcoming move to a redeveloped atelier, where solar power will soon fuel our energy needs. Beyond this, we're not just harvesting water; we're transforming wastewater into potable water within our new atelier. The redevelopment itself is a sustainable marvel, the very soil we excavated has been repurposed to craft the bricks for our façade, creating a natural cooling effect. This conscientious approach extends to every detail; notably, we've opted out of traditional air conditioners to significantly reduce our carbon footprint in our new office space. It's not just about sustainability; it's a narrative of our dedication to a mindful and innovative future.
We passionately believe in shaping brighter futures through our Education & Vocational Trust, generously funded by 2% of our revenues. This initiative is close to our hearts as it enables us to provide education and opportunities for growth to the children of our craftsmen. As we expand our horizons, we are extending our support to other children in the community. Our ambitious goal is to scale up, ensuring that at least 100 children a year benefit from this program. And, rest assured, this is just the beginning – we are committed to launching new initiatives every year, contributing to a legacy of positive change.
Aranyani stands as a pillar of support by regularly distributing monthly rations to vulnerable community members. This effort is a collaborative endeavour with local elected bodies, showcasing a commitment to unity. Aranyani's impact extends to the educational realm, assisting schools within the community, and fostering growth and empowerment.
Join our Aranyani ecosystem as we continue to pioneer positive change- our commitment to sustainability is not just a practice; it's a promise for a better, more mindful future.
