Indigene Craft concentrate on classic silhouettes, ease, comfort and all day wear-ability in their clothing. They use natural textiles such has hand woven cottons, silks and occasionally wool. Most of their cotton and silk comes from West Bengal, and the wool from Himachal. Their prints are co-created with Ajrakh printers from Kutch, while the hand-embroidered kantha detailing is the work of a small group of migrant women who have settled in Delhi. Indigene's aim of working with multiple techniques on one garment is challenging as it involved moving the garment to different parts of the country according to where the artisan community is based, but therein lies the uniqueness of the work they do, ‘holding as many hands as possible to complete the circle of an Indigene garment’.
