Usha International in collaboration with IMG Reliance launches the sustainable fashion label ‘Usha Silai’. The brand is an outcome of the reaffirming commitment of Usha’s SILAI School, a community based program that started in March 2011 and reaches out to women from remote villages across the country; capacitate them to earn a living by teaching them sewing and stitching without disturbing the daily routine and ethos of the society. The program empowers these women in establishing her “self” to become an entrepreneur and teach sewing to other village women within the community space providing opportunities to grow and evolve.
Usha International in partnership with 54 NGOs today runs over 15,000 Silai schools across India. Besides India, Silai Schools are also present in Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka; and aims to take this initiative to all SAARC nations. The NGO partners facilitate and support USHA to identify, set up and motivate village women to join the Silai Schools. These women are identified through rigorous assessment of their technical skills and behavioral aspects. They are called Master Trainers and impart further training to the existing Silai School teachers.
More than 2,84,000 learners have completed their course from Silai Schools and nearly 14,000 learners continue to get sewing skills training every day from these schools. The schools are making a marked difference in the lives of the women. The women, on an average have started earning Rs. 1800/- per month, with the highest earning going up to Rs. 45,000/- per month. This earning is working as a catalyst in building the self-confidence of women and raising her status within and outside the family. This financial income and increased self-worth is facilitating in creation of empowered change agents in the villages of India.
Usha International believes that by making the iconic black peddle machine accessible to these communities has helped them develop their inherent latent potentials/talents that will go a long way in bringing about holistic development for society at large. Usha’s commitment of bringing the change marked the inception of label Usha Silai. The brand aspires to create a positive change in the lives of these SILAI women by empowering them with skills and resources, to produce unique pieces that have the essence of the region bearing credits of the rural women workers and are yet innovative to be retailed in the urban fashion market. The Usha Silai brand will create a platform that showcases the work of local SILAI women communities from four identified creative regions of Rajasthan, Bengal, Gujarat and Pondicherry under the mentorship of established designers.
The Usha Silai label is more than just a brand; it is a movement to eliminate gender disparity and uplift livelihoods of rural women all over the country.
A new chapter in fabric history was written the day Tencel fiber was invented and created the future of sustainable fabric. Cooler than linen, softer than silk and more absorbent than cotton.
Lenzing AG, globally leading producer of wood-based cellulose fibers stands for a responsible approach to nature. TENCEL® branded lyocell fibers from the house of Lenzing are of botanic origin, extracted from the raw material wood from the core to the bark using 100% of the natural resource wood.
Bacteria do not stand a chance with TENCEL® branded lyocell fibers. The perfect moisture management of these cellulosic fibers are responsible for the reduced bacteria growth.
Lenzing has achieved another milestone in its innovation heritage in the textile industry by developing a new fiber based on cotton scraps and wood - RefibraTM fiber. Making it the first cellulose fiber featuring recycled material on a commercial scale.
For the brand, developing circular business models in the fashion industry ensures the decoupling of business growth from pressure on ecological resource consumption. It reduces the need to extract additional virgin resources from nature, and reduces the net impact on ecological resources.
