Online workshop, hosted on Zoom by RaasLeela
RaasLeela follows sustainability as a lifestyle by repairing, conserving, and consuming less and following eco-friendly practices. It is a solution-driven brand. Every design, material, and process is chosen thoughtfully that serves as a purpose rather than making "Just Beautiful" products. RaasLeela focuses on making a difference – in consuming resources, in reviving crafts, in providing inclusive growth to people who are connected with the brand.
Each of their products is completely hand sewn using the age-old technique old hand sewing from Gujarat! Be it pockets, seams, embellishments, buttons, strings, and name labels.
RaasLeela uses raw Kora cotton fabric – process free, bleach-free, and dye-free, as cotton is the most beautiful in its purest and natural form.
They run a zero-waste production unit; a zero waste philosophy and the everlasting sense of style and utility, believing in pre-planning of design and process, so that there is less wastage, to begin with.
The RaasLeela team defines itself as a "happy family”, with a culture of togetherness while they work, eat, exercise, party, or travel. RaasLeela believes working should be an experience to rejoice and not just a means to earn a living.
