Buna grew as a response to an ever changing world. It signals a shift from rapid consumption and disposal to ethical choices and mindful living. It recognises that green fashion is no longer an alternative, but a necessity. At Buna we are mindful of our environmental impact and consciously strive towards reducing waste and devising eco-friendly methods of crafting our garments. We use artisanal led techniques of weaving and hand block printing to create our natural fabrics.
Being from India, we stay true to our indigenous roots and take pride in our ethnicity catering to the global consumer. Our process is slow. Each piece of our collection is meticulously designed and conceptualised with nature & its seasons in mind. Our designs are then transferred to the most natural forms of fabrics – we only work with mulmul, handwoven and handspun cotton, chanderi, and linen sourced from different regions in India. We refrain from using synthetics like rayon, polyester, nylon, acrylic or spandex that do not decompose and leave permanent trails in the environment. These might mimic the qualities of natural fibres but their plastic and other harmful derivatives are a slow poison to the earth. Unlike fast fashion, we believe in producing limited quantities and rather produce on orders to avoid wastage and excess production.
While the material remains the essence of a dress, its colour is its soul. A Buna dress is often in its kora form, fresh out of the loom which means an earthy, subtle and raw-natural shade which has been untouched by dyes but has retained its original form and colour and so, most of our garments are in shades of white. At times, they dance in shades of pastels, like a summer dream or a winter’s night. It speaks of elegance and class. We dwell in our world of pastels inspired by sunsets, and the most beautiful colours the nature has presented. Not all dyes are environment friendly. To fill colour in our Buna world, we have maintained the usage of azo-free dyes that are free from potential carcinogens and other harmful chemicals. Chemical dyes are known to take a toll on the workers’ health and pollute water bodies.
