Pashmina Scarves & Shawls
The name Pashmina comes from Persian meaning “made from wool” and literally translates to Soft gold .It is basically a Species of Goat that produces an undercoat of extremely fine wool called Pashmina. Summers come, they rub themselves against rocks and shrubs, leaving behind fine short haired fleece.
It's collected and is worthfully sold. The fleece is renowned for it's soft silkiness, feather lightness and warming attributes.
The Wool collected every spring before the goat grows a new coat each winter is cleaned and combed which seperates the hard and the soft fibers. Then on the Charkha it is carefully hand spun. The wool merchant separates the yarn for use as warp and weft.
The designs are laid and a writer transforms the designs onto a Talim in form of script or a series of hieroglyphics. It's woven as Urdu is read (left to right) and the Talim is read as one reads English (right to left). The Talim consists of a set of symbols denoting various numbers of warp ends and a second set denoting the different colours the Kani (bobbin or small individual shuttles for the different colors of the motif) has to go over. The weavers are at the looms for about 8 to 15 days to create a plain full length Pashmina and the number of days increase with the intricacy of the design if it's a Kani Pashmina shawl. Pashmina Shawls are handmade and hand-embroidered by Kashmiri Artisans who spend as much as two years to complete just one wrap.
Cashmere wool is obtained with combing of the lower hair (the lower layer of hair) from special goats that provide cashmere wool. The Cashmere goat originates from India and Pakistan and today, the Cashmere goat is bred in many different countries around the globe. Cashmere fiber is six times finer compared to human hair. The soft and dense material can keep users warm even when it is -40°C although it is only a few millimeters thick. Clothing products made of cashmere keep their original shape even after years of use. Cashmere products do not stretch and do not fade (of course, only if you take proper care of them). Cashmere comes in three colors – gray, brown and white, but this is a material that is capable of dyeing to a very large range of colors. It can be dyed as good as any other type of wool. Cashmere was a material that was used by noblemen in the Roman Empire starting from the 18th century.
We have a new line of Ecofriendly products. It's a need for an hour to switch to Eco Friendly Products to contribute to the sustainability of environment. The Yarn we use in our scarves is certified by Global Organic Textile Standard(GOTS).
Some of our eco friendly products are listed below:
100 % Modal Scarves
Modal is a Wood Pulp based cellulosic fiber, made out of pure wooden chips from the Beech tree, technically as the European Schneider Zelkova tree. Beechwood, is the raw material for Modal fibre. Beech trees are very special. They multiply by “rejuvenation” which means that the trees propagate by themselves. No artificial irrigation or planting is required. Today one of the best-known producers of modal is the Austrian company Lenzing AG, who market their ® version under the name Lenzing Modal . Lenzing Modal is protected by a global certification system which is registered worldwide.
Modal fabric is very soft and is often blended with cotton, spandex or other fibers. It is cool to the touch and very absorbent. It takes and holds dyes easily. Modal is less resistant to shrinkage than cotton and tends to pill less as a result of friction on the surface. Modal can be washed in any water temperature.
The environmental footprint of Lenzing Modal is a positive one – it's carbon-neutral, requires less land per tonne than cotton fibres and has a water consumption level that's ten to twenty times less than that of cotton. Many brands, therefore, see Modal as an eco-friendly choice.
Organic Cotton Scarves
Organic cotton is cotton that is grown without using any chemical fertilizers or pesticides on it. It is grown on land that has been treated and given sufficient time (at least three years) for the removal of all the toxic residues of chemical fertilizers and pesticides used earlier on it. The specialty of Indian organic cotton is that all the cotton is hand-picked.
Organic cotton is of far better quality than non-organic cotton. Organic cotton can rightly be called the most skin-friendly, most soothing, and most harmless natural fiber.
Our 100 % organic cotton is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. GOTS certified organic cotton means that your product has been ethically sourced, and monitored closely during the production process. The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labelling, trading and distribution of all textiles made from at least 70 percent certified organic natural fibres. The final fibre products may include, but are not limited to, yarns, fabrics, clothes and home textiles.
Bamboo fabric is a natural textile made from the pulp of bamboo grass. The Bamboo used to produce fabrics, Shawls & Scarves is easily replenished and requires no pesticides to grow. Bamboo is considered one of the most sustainable plants because it grows quickly and does not require chemicals or irrigation, and biodegrades more quickly than oil-based synthetics. Clothing made of bamboo typically lasts longer and holds its shape even better than clothing made of other fibers. Bamboo clothing has a luxuriously soft fabric that is naturally hypoallergenic, moisture-absorbent and quick drying. The fiber is naturally smooth and round without chemical treatment, meaning that there are no sharp spurs to irritate the skin. Bamboo can look and feel like silk or very soft cotton. The bamboo plant has a natural resistance to pest and fungal infestation due to an anti-microbial agent known as "bamboo kun” that prevents harmful matters from cultivating on the plant. This eco fabric will also protect you from the sun with its UV resistant qualities.
Recycled Acrylic Scarves
Recycled acrylic yarn is a yarn that contains fibers that were once used in something else. The Process allows the yarn to be produced from cut and sew waste from Apparel manufacturers at an inexpensive price. They are ecofriendly, washable and is generally hypoallergenic.
The first such recycled yarn available was the recycled Silk yarn made from the end bits left over from Sari production, the garment (sari) which is used mostly in India by women.
Silk comes from the cocoon of the silk worm. Although many insects produce silk, the commercial silk industry primarily uses the filament produced by the Bombyx mori or mulberry silk moth. The silk worm feeds on mulberry leaves and then attaches itself to a mulberry tree to spin a silk cocoon. This process takes from three to eight days and is referred to as pupating. Farmers raise the cocoons and sell them to manufacturers.
Most of our scarves are made by Handlooms. Handlooms are environment friendly and are an independent and autonomous in technology. The industry presents a quality in itself to sustainable development and reduction of negative impacts on environment and ecology as well as providing sustainable employment for rural India. The weavers are typical of rural Indians left behind by market forces, rapid development of industry (Power loom) on an extensive scale.
We don't employ Child labour or forced labour at our handlooms. People below 18 years of age are not recruited, and child labour is strictly prohibited, even in a home-based working environment.
Production efficiency target is set for 50% and the workers are not forced to exceed the target. However, an incentive is paid for the individuals who exceed the daily target with the expected quality.
Faizals Craft works cooperatively with its workers and maintains long-term relationships. Faizals Craft does not discriminate its workers based on their gender, disability, religion or race. Both male and female workers are employed.
Faizals Craft is committed to provide safe and healthy working environment at looms and at warehouse for all of its workers as per the guidelines provided in the National labour law. While handloom industry is recognized as an environmentally sustainable industry due to its low energy and resources used, Faizals Craft has taken further sustainable initiatives to improve its environmental performance. The dyes used in our scarves are azo free which are non-toxic. Waste water from the dye house is treated and released to agricultural fields, and the dye sludge is sent to be reused in the cement industry. The production process focuses on achieving zero material waste.
Faizals Craft has been dedicated to raising the living standard of Artisans in the developing words since our inception over 2 decades ago. We have established a small fund, wherein a small percentage of total profit we make, goes into the fund with the purpose of helping workers and their families with educational, medical & other emergency costs that arise. In order to uplift the rural products, we purchase directly from the Artisans so this way improving the overall progress of rural people by giving them appropriate price.
We also have an in-house designing team in order to establish expertise & creativity for the development of the products we specialize in. We also work on the specifications and instructions of the buyer for developing several different products which we deal in.
We have a professional team of merchandisers and assistant merchandisers in order to cater to the distinctive needs of buyers of different markets.
