Black Star believes in collective prosperity. Our passion for sustainable design comes from groundbreaking collaborations. We reawaken a new respect for clothing by remixing and transforming unwanted obsolete items into new designs. Kantha stitching ( rags in Sanskrit ) has its roots in the culture of Women. It is a traditional artform of West Bengal, India. We recycle old silk and cotton sarees by piercing and layering the fabric into re-workable material transforming them into serviceable items while at the same time providing a wage for displaced tribes in India. Sustainable fashion explores the economical, ecological, and emotional value in the garments we wear. A reciprocal process of give and take. Taking risks and creating just what the future can hold for our wardrobes.
