Gujarat based designer Sunaina Varma was acutely aware of the plight of Indian cotton farmers since her teens. As she researched more into the topic, she found that the rate of suicide for cotton farmers in India was one per 30 minutes approximately. Shocked, she slowly made the switch to organic living and fashion, which further fueled her dream of one day launching a sustainable fashion brand which would not only help emancipate the farmers, but also make chic sustainable pieces more accessible to fashion lovers across the globe.
With this vision, she finally launched Ekkdora in 2019, a proud wholly ‘made in India’ label, that practices ethical sourcing, fair trade practices and seeks to deliver high-quality fashion pieces, without ever compromising on style or comfort.
