Aranya is a philosophy, rooted in natural aesthetics and responsible living. Our mission is to manufacture designer craft products using natural dyes, natural fibres, textiles and biodegradable materials. We are dedicated to establishing the commercial viability of eco-friendly products as well as creating new opportunities for artisans and economically disadvantaged women. Aranya’s vision is to establish a sustainable fashion value chain where people, planet and profit are measured equally.
The programme aims to increase the participation of women-owned businesses in trade in order to increase economic growth and job creation in Commonwealth countries.
