Stitch by Stitch are creators of handmade textiles made in India and Nepal, and are driven by sustainable practice and preserving the livelihoods of the skilled artisans. ‘From Rain to Loom’ highlights the Khamir Kala Cotton Initiative, which is a reinterpretation of an old craft value chain reconfigured for the modern marketplace.
Kala cotton is an ancient, genetically pure, drought resistant species and indigenous to the Kutch region of India, an area famed for its hand weaving. Rain-fed, it is resilient and resurgent in difficult land conditions. This contrasts with other genetically modified widespread and imported species, which require intensive irrigation, synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.

Opening times: Sat – Tues 10-6, Weds & Fri 10-8, Thurs 10–9
