Vice President of Sourcing and Strategy, West Elm
We have been working with Eco-Tasar for 4 years. Together we have been creating handloom silk stoles and fabrics for the Western market. The handloom stoles are all made from handspun yarn in Bihar. At the moment almost 80% of our collection consists out of Eco-Tasar’s products. So we happily could say that Eco-Tasar has grown to our biggest partner. Though we started with 3 other silk suppliers in the past, we experienced that Eco-Tasar delivers the best quality and also on time. The company is very loyal, hard working and together with the dedicated input and effort of Mr. Khitish it is able to grow rapidly and has professionalized its production process very fast. Eco-Tasar is a company with a fair and sustainable philosophy which makes it possible that people in the rural villages have an income and can stay home. Furthermore, it promotes silk farming and an old and traditional craft which should be kept alive. We strongly share their philosophy and will keep working with them in order to make the world a better place. Though Eco-Tasar is a fair trade company, it has been able to fullfil our very high-end Western standards and qualities.
