Proudly Handcrafted in India

India is the origin of fashion when it comes to our world history. Indian culture is heavily portrayed throughout their garment in history. Fashion in India has set the precedent for the industry around the world, countless brands still look to India’s elaborate craftsmanship for inspiration. 

The creativity expressed in their clothing production combined with the quality of textiles is groundbreaking. These garments have so much love, passion, and creativity woven in them. The history of craftsmanship in India has been seen through the quality and sustainability of their fabrics throughout history. Always high-quality clothing with an exceptional attention to detail. 

Clothing in India is also created with a wide range of all natural fibers from cotton to silk to wool. The natural fabrics are better for the Earth, healthier to create and wear, and when done right are chemical-free, while having positive qualities for the environment. 

These lush fabrics woven from natural sources are authentically sustainable. India has the longest history of sustainable production practices without the use of chemical or toxic ingredients. Along with sustainable production, India is also known for their focus on ethical production.

The government of India has implemented various rules to make sure safe production practices occur in workplaces, which include working conditions, fair wages, and absolutely no children being taken advantage of for labor.

Clothing Made with Local Love

We want our products to do no harm to our precious planet. No harmful chemicals with natural fiber only. To follow the rest of our cotton collection, the shirt dress is made from all natural organic Indian cotton with numerous health benefits for our people and planet alike:

  • Renewable: All natural cotton is a renewable resource, because it can be grown and harvested every year without destroying the soil itself.
  • Recyclable: Cotton can be recycled, which will help reduce textile waste in landfills or recycled for a new garment which promotes circular economy.
  • Biodiversity: Cotton farms actually help create habitats for a variety of animals including birds and insects
  • Soil Health: Farming cotton with no harmful chemicals or pesticides improves soil health through crop rotation which can lead to healthier farmland.
  • Reduced Carbon Emissions: all natural cotton production requires low amounts of energy, which produces extremely low greenhouse gas emissions. In contrast, synthetic fibers create very high emissions, which are released at a fast rate into our air.
  • Biodegradable: Since the cotton is all natural and contains no harmful dyes or chemicals in the production, the product is biodegradable and can decompose, unlike synthetic fibers which take centuries to decompose in the landfill.
  • Carbon Sequestration: The cotton plants not only have low greenhouse gas emissions, but they also consume carbon dioxide during photosynthesis.
  • Water Conservation: Cotton plants also require less water than other crops, so less of our vital resource is being used.

This iconic organic shirt dress exemplifies all of these qualities. When you purchase and wear this organic belted shirt dress, you are taking a stand for the positive impact of a natural fiber future.

Care Instructions

Plant-Dyed Organic Garment Care Instructions

 

How maintain your long lasting sustainable natural fiber garments — learn how to take care of your products, while extending their lifecycle and vibrant colors. 

— When it comes to washing your garment, you will want to wash on the “delicate” setting in cold water. Once complete, hang or lay your garment in the shade to dry.

— With all organic plant-dyed pieces, there is a possibility of natural bleed from the garment. Wearing your garment multiple times in between washes can help to prevent over-washing. We highly recommend using chemical-free detergent to keep these precious non-toxic garment pristine — even add a splash of white vinegar to preserve the color.

— When it comes to ironing your BTC organics, you will want to do so on the ‘wool setting’ of your iron. This allows the job to get done, while treating the fiber with gentle care. 

Be the Change Organics provide high frequency fashion made from natural fibers with benefits of sustainability, improved comfort, scientifically elevates your vibration (frequency), and reduces your exposure to harmful chemicals.

 

BeachCandy Swimwear Care Instructions

 

BeachCandy swim is carefully handcrafted locally in Los Angeles, made to last season after season when cared for properly.

Start by filling a basin with enough water to cover your swimwear. Soak your swimsuit with a capful of swimwear cleanser and repeat this hand wash process after each use and only in cool water.

Work the suds into and through the suit to clean all areas. We recommend soaking the swimsuit for 20-30 minutes until it does not smell like chlorine or the beach any longer. Hang it to dry naturally in a shady cool place. 

Do not wring, wrap in a towel, or put in a plastic bag when wet. Chlorine and chemical exposure may increase the chances of damaging your suit. Rough surfaces, and/or heat may also shorten the life of your swimsuit fabric and Swarovski candy. We also recommend that you don’t accidentally toss your BeachCandy in a washing machine, dryer, or spot clean with harsh chemicals.
