Conscious Business Practices
A&B strongly believes in sustainable fashion and takes pride in adopting fair trade practices and eco-conscious methods of production.
Artisans are paid generous wages, offered healthcare that covers their families, a one-year paid maternity leave, and financial assistance to pursue higher education if they so choose. Additionally, A&B invests in grooming their artisans for leadership roles by offering training and workshops.
Steps are taken to reduce environmental footprint, and a key aspect of it is using water judiciously throughout their production process. A&B has an elaborate rainwater harvesting setup and a specialized wastewater filtration plant that helps in drastically reducing water usage.
Eco-conscious methods of production drive the earliest stages of creation (conceptualizing, designing) and is carried forward until the very last (recycling, disposal management). There is heavy focus on finding natural and sustainable materials for garments and accessories such as jute, pure cotton, and handwoven jacquard. No leftover fabric simply thrown away but upcycled into stunning rugs, pouches, coin bags, and other beautiful accessories.
