Cotton for Coexist clothing comes from Chetna Organic, an organic, fair trade farm cooperative uniting over 25,000 farmers across ethnic groups, castes, and religions to cultivate crops in harmony with each other and the environment.
Each item in the Cotton shop is crafted, knitted, dyed, and sewn by expert Hindu and Muslim tailors at the Rajlakshmi Mill in Kolkata, India. Blending heritage-taught skills of hand-stenciling and cutting with modern environmental stewardship, Rajlakshmi strengthens community bonds and produces soft and durable designs.
Profits from Coexist Cotton are returned to Coexist projects around the world, improving access to education for children in divided communities. Although conflict among Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, and Christians in India extends back centuries, your purchase allows children in these communities to create a new generation tied together with stronger bonds.Shop Cotton
