All LILY FORBES pieces are produced with a fair trade production house in Delhi, India, employing women facing caste discrimination and providing health and educational services.
All LILY FORBES fabric is intentionally sourced, with the environment and worker-wellbeing at the forefront of decision-making. The cotton pieces produced to date are 100% hand woven by the Ali family (4 generations) outside of Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. Heritage weaving is an important part of the local economy and history, and sadly, is a dying craft.
The Ali family weaves cloth specifically for LILY FORBES with fibers naturally dyed in a small, family-run, safe, clean facility in Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh. The cotton threads are dyed by third generation natural dyer, Mahesh.
The silk pieces are AZO free and handwoven with a Fair Trade house in Bihar or produced from recycled/vintage silk.
Lily has visited all facilities she sources from to ensure production is completely transparent and ethical.
