In the current unhealthy environment, we should make our efforts to sustain the environment, with this thinking Fashion Designer Mithi Kalra, decided to take designing skills for a cause.

25 year-old designer, Mithi Kalra has made sure that even the thread used the clothing should be 100% biodegradable, and the buttons used in the dresses are made of biodegradable wood.

Kalra has kept a deep focus on the fabrics, “We have made usage of organic cotton, a type of cotton that is produced without the use of chemicals, pesticides or synthetic substances inside of it. It can take as little as 1-5 months to completely biodegrade, but now when the clothes are thrown into compost bins after usage then they don’t harm the nature,”

Kalra feels that, if chemicals are used in the fabrics then it causes more damage to the environment, “Currently there is a high need of the resilient fabrics that are harmless and viable for a longer usage,”
