A fair trade is a trade done with humanity in each of its process. Textile is said to be the second largest industry for unethical trade practices all over the world. Child labour, exploitation, forced labour, discrimination; non-environmental production, etc. are some examples of such unfair manufacturing of textile products whereas a fair trade product is which is made in a healthy environment and by satisfied people.
Love and support to local artisans.
Our community of artisans belong to villages where basic needs like electricity, water, education, facilities lack. We responsibly contribute to uplift their life style by distributing work to the locals than creating product from factories with lot of machineries. A handmade work is better than any mass production as it uplifts the lives of artisans and encourages taking their art to next generations. Mohari also took a small step toward the road by providing free education and guidance. Poverty leads local men toward drug addiction but a joyous working environment and proper wages they get to come to work every day.
If it’s eco-friendly, it’s skin-friendly.
Our products are made by using non-toxic or low impact chemicals which has almost zero effect on environment. Our water consumption in the process is comparatively much lesser. Recycle and reuse of water in the process is the definition of our sustainable textile. Wastage is a big issue in textile industry but if a product is handmade, it will not have much wastage. Mohari’s hand block printed fabrics are made with so much love that we do not let go any wastage and we recycle it by making handmade products.
Handmade because women empowerment! –
We are passionate for handmade textile that engages women for employment and encourage their growth by giving them economic support. In lot of areas women are still not getting equal wages which is one of the reasons of lack of moral strength. We believe in growth of individual irrespective of gender and hence we do not distribute work and wages on basis of gender. We are associated with many women who were not born in artisans’ family but adapted skills impeccably and proved their existence with respect.
Healthy environment, quality product.
We adhere to ethical manufacturing or fair trade and commit for:-

Our way of working
Our vision is to transmit tradition of hand block printed textile for coming next generations and along with that to keep the tradition alive for artisans. If every one of us decides to participate in this slow fashion we will be contributing our part in supporting artisans. It is important to know where your products are being made and who they are made by. Making people aware of the source of our products is our part.
