A carry-over discovery from my previous post is that David Earp’s charity Shuktara supplies handmade textiles to Dosa, a company started by clothing designer Christina Kim. Part of Kim’s creative mission is to recycle and reuse fabrics to the maximum degree possible and she accomplishes this beautifully in her work with jamdani fabrics from India. (I think a safe / simple definition of jamdani is that it’s a very finely woven cotton, typically used for saris.)

Dosa’s website isn’t set up for linking directly to individual pages but if you’d like to read more about the history of jamdani (very interesting!) and how Dosa is using it today go to the home page, then “special projects”, then “life of jamdani”.
